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. 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
- Bloating or nausea, especially during menstrual periods
How to Relieve Endometriosis Pain with Hemp Products
For those who suffer from 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 painkillers, 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.
What is CBD and What’s the Best Way to Take it For PMS?
Here’s where we introduce CBD and its 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 putting a CBD suppository in 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 of absorption 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.
What is a CBD Suppository anyway?
A CBD suppository is suppository made with CBD. Simple as that. Suppositories are used for a lot of things, and it simply means the way of absorption through the body. These suckers are usually a rounded-off cone shape for easy insertion, made of coconut oil and hemp extract. Natural ingredients that your body will love.
Is it Safe to Use a Vaginal Suppository?
Yes! Not only safe – but extremely effective! Enflower’s CBD suppositories are all natural and have helped alleviate endometriosis symptoms.
How Does CBD Suppositories Alleviate Menstrual Pain?
No one likes to suffer from a bad case of menstrual cramps, and we all look for the quickest way of relief. First, let’s get out of the way what causes this menstrual cramp pain. During either ovulation or your period, your uterus will contract to assist in the removal of the lining, this leads to cutting off the oxygen momentarily to nearby blood cells, and that’s the source of pain.
CBD not only helps to stop those contractions but takes down the inflammation that has been caused because of it. Suppositories are just one of the quickest ways to achieve that sweet, sweet relief.
What are the Benefits of CBD Suppositories?
There are many benefits that come with CBD suppositories, such as general pain relief, and fast-acting anti-inflammatory properties, but the difference between these suppositories and your average over the counter pain relief medication is that CBD suppositories start helping you within minutes versus waiting 30 minutes to an hour. This method works by the CBD encapsulated by coconut oil, and the heat of your body melts the suppository upon contact, the mucous membranes in your vagina and rectum allow for quick and easy absorption.
Who can Benefit from CBD Suppositories?
Anyone and everyone can benefit from these beauties. From those who just prefer another alternative to taking pills, to people who just don’t have a choice. A lot of conditions can prevent people from the ability to swallow, and we have come up with a way to assist and aid everyone. From those suffering from Endometriosis, Parkinson’s, ALS, Multiple Sclerosis, or even those who recently had a stroke.
Suppositories have also been seen to benefit people undergoing chemotherapy, where a side effect is major nausea, making it hard for them to keep medication down. Or even people who need relief but have a surgery soon and they can’t ingest anything.
