Being a woman is a beautiful thing. I have learned to embrace my ever-changing body, which is miraculously equipped to grow and foster life. However, dealing with womanly pains, such as PMS, isn’t always so fun.
I recently recovered from a horrific bout of premenstrual syndrome (PMS). It was difficult to go about my normal routine, let alone get out of bed. My lower abdomen felt like a rope being tied in a knot and pulled taut on both ends. My legs were weak, my motivation was non-existent and my mood had gone far south. The slightest annoyance would’ve sent me spiraling into tears, or into a fit of rage – a result of some drastic mood swings.
There are many known ways to manage PMS symptoms – like exercising and getting plenty of sleep – but if your mind isn’t in the right place, it will be very difficult to accomplish these things. That’s where CBD comes to the rescue.
High-quality, full-spectrum CBD products made from organically grown cannabis (hemp) are the most potent and safe options for managing PMS symptoms. CBD may not be a cure-all for everybody’s symptoms, but it certainly can help anybody manage pain, ease stress and regulate mood.
If you’re struggling to get through the day when PMS is on the table, I highly suggest these three CBD products from Seabedee:
The lower abdomen, stomach and breast pains often felt with PMS are caused by acute inflammation. General pain relievers like aspirin and ibuprofen are anti-inflammatories, but they come with negative side effects, like potential stomach or liver damage with long-term use.
This CBD oil is specifically formulated for inflammation, containing 500mg of full-spectrum CBD and a proprietary terpene blend. Research has proven that CBD is most effective when combined with the cannabis plant’s natural terpenes. This blend helps target painful PMS inflammation , while also relaxing your mind and releasing any stored mental or physical tension.
Self-care should always be a priority – especially when PMS hits. Unwind and immerse yourself in a warm bath with a lavender, eucalyptus or jasmine bath bomb from Seabedee. The soothing herbal aroma will alleviate any stress floating through your mind, and 100mg of CBD will help release tension from your body.
I took my first bath since childhood last week with Seabedee’s CBD lavender bomb. It was the most blissful experience I have had in a long time. I gave my bathtub an intense scrub down, lit some meditative incense, shut the bathroom door and dropped the bath bomb in the tub. Immediately, as it fizzed and dissolved spectacularly into the hot bath water, I was met with a powerful lavender aroma that filled the room. Then, I settled in the tub for about the next 30 minutes and the rest is history.
This bath finally helped my mind settle into a deep relaxation, which is a rarity these days. Get your hands on any one of these luxurious bath bombs if you want to escape from the chaos caused by PMS.
Cravings are another inevitable symptom of PMS – one that I can never get control over. However, I don’t have to feel guilty about giving into my sweet tooth with these CBD-infused gummies. Each gummy is individually dosed with 10mg of CBD isolate – Seabedee suggests that you start with 2-3 gummies and find your dose from there. Although, you may find it nearly impossible to stop because they just taste so delicious!
Munching on these gummy bears is one of the best ways to passively dose. When your PMS cramps have you feeling stuck to your couch or bed, bring a bag of these with you, switch on some cozy TV shows and chill out.
In my experience, CBD has been a highly effective way of managing PMS because it addresses both physical and mental symptoms. PMS and menstruation will inevitably happen every month, so it’s crucial that you don’t constantly suffer. I sincerely hope that you are able to find peace and manage your pain through CBD.
