CBD for Endometriosis

What is endometriosis?

Endometriosis is a frequently painful condition where tissue similar to that which normally lines the uterus – the endometrium – mistakenly grows outside of the uterus. Endometrial tissue can develop on the ovaries, fallopian tubes and other abdominal locations.

Endometriosis causes major inflammation which is one of the reasons that individuals experience pain.

CBD and CBD oils are known to have anti-inflammatory properties. CBD is also known to have mild analgesic properties which is important for reducing the pain that comes along with endometriosis.

According to research, the following are the various ways that CBD deals with endometriosis;

  • Preventing cell proliferation and cell migration

  • Reduce inflammation

  • Calm and reduce pain

  • Regulating hormonal balance

  • Desensitizing pain-transmitting nerves

CBD can help relax abdominal and pelvic muscles, in effect easing the pain of the intense cramping of most endometriosis suffers endure. There are also many individual patient case studies which show that CBD oil can help with endometriosis.
