Just when you thought periods couldn’t get any worse, some women suffer from a disorder known as Endometriosis. It affects more than 11% of the female population, which is about 10.8 million people in the world. During a normal menstrual cycle, the uterine lining grows during a 23-32 day process, and then when your body realizes that there’s not a fertilized egg to shelter, it’ll shed the lining. And that’s what we call the, “period.”
However, when you have endometriosis, the lining that would grow inside the uterus, grows outside of it, usually it occurs on Fallopian tubes, ovaries, inside the stomach, and even inside or outside the bladder. This extra tissue has nowhere to go, and this can cause extreme pain and infertility. Lesions will form where the new tissue grows, causing inflammation & pain.
What are the First Signs of Endometriosis?
- Painful periods
- Pain during intercourse
- Pain with bowel movements or urination
- Excessive bleeding
- You may also experience fatigue, diarrhea, constipation, bloating or nausea, especially during menstrual periods.
How to Relieve Endometriosis Pain with Hemp Products
For those who suffer with Endometriosis know the trials and tribulations that come with this disorder and finding pain relief can be just as hard. Some don’t have these symptoms, but for those who do, they turn to pain killers, like opiates, hormone pills, and contraceptives, to try to lessen the relentless pain that comes with Endometriosis; and even with them, the pain is still present.
Here’s where we introduce CBD, and it’s benefits. CBD, known as cannabidiol, is a compound in Hemp & Marijuana. CBD stops the body from absorbing anandamide, one compound associated with regulating pain. It also may limit inflammation in the brain and nervous system. Endometriosis has been linked to endocannabinoid deficiency, which is guess what? CBD, and other cannabinoids found in Hemp. BINGO!
We’ve found a single natural product that helps pain & inflammation. There’s a link between CB2 receptors and inflammation. CBD has been found to tend inflammation by attaching to CB2 receptors, which are involved in anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive actions, allowing the body to target and alleviate inflammation and its accompanied pain.
Now to pair the best medicinal help, with the fastest way to distribute it. And this way would be suppositories. When put it the rectum, the medicine is immediately put into a moist environment against a permeable membrane. Causing you to be able to absorb the medication faster. This method is much faster than taking a pill, or tablet because it only gets absorbed once it hits the small intestine. You would think it could absorb in the stomach, however there’s a layer of mucus lining the stomach, so the stomach itself is protected from the acid and stomach enzymes.
That together is what we call a CBD suppository, a combo of the most helpful techniques to help the pain.
