For those of us who experience a monthly period, it can be a lot to handle. The mood swings. The aches and pains. The insatiable hunger. The bloating. The cramping. Oh, man…the cramping!
While most of us have reached for the usual suspects to ease our pain, including Tylenol, Advil, Midol, hot packs, a bottle of wine, or a few bars of chocolate, sometimes it just doesn’t do the trick.
What if I told you that there was a healthier option? One that may provide you more relief than you’ve experienced with normal pharmaceutical pain killers?
Cannabis doesn’t just make your feel better emotionally, though it can certainly help with mood swings and associated anxiety. Utilizing cannabis during your period can help to reduce inflammation and the pain tied to menstrual cramps.
As you may have read in our earlier article, “What Pain Can CBD Treat?“, we know that CBD has the ability to reduce inflammatory pain. It does this by inhibiting the release of glutamate and other inflammatory agents, making it ‘neuroprotective’ and excellent at dulling the pain, swelling and discomfort that often comes along with cramps.
In comparison to NSAIDs, like ibuprofen, some studies have shown that cannabinoids like CBD and THC are up to twenty times more potent at reducing inflammation!
What happens when you mix THC, CBD and other all-natural pain relievers into one product collection? You get the Yoni lineup!
Yoni, translating to “abode,” “source,” “womb,” or “vagina” in Sanskrit, is considered the symbol of feminine generative power in Hinduism. This collection of tinctures, balms, bath salts and teas is specially designed to ease the pain associated with our monthly menstrual cycle.
