What Dr. Eilber Can Say about
Cannabis/CBD Benefits for Women

CBD or cannabidiol is naturally found in hemp plants. CBD will not get one high, which is an advantage for people who wish to take it while at school or at work. Understanding CBD is the key to knowing how hemp oil supplements work and why this compound has captured the attention of the masses. The promise of CDB and its therapeutic effects is why so many people are trying it for so many different maladies.

Here are 6 benefits of incorporating cannabis/CBD in a woman’s life:

    1. Pain associated with common conditions including joint pain, muscle soreness, and even fibromyalgia has been shown to be relieved with CBD.
    2. CBD is naturally anti-inflammatory and has shown promise for autoimmune disorders such as Hashimoto’s disease, lupus, and even celiac disease.
    3. Cannabis has been shown to reduce involuntary bladder contractions so may be helpful with overactive bladder.   
    4. CBD mimics the body’s own endocannabinoids so it could potentially help maintain the body’s homeostasis including hormonal balance.
    5. CBD can help with mood and anxiety—common symptoms associated with menopause.
    6. CBD is also naturally antimicrobial so great for things like an intimate lubricant.
    7. Cannabinoids can increase blood flow, which can help with arousal, and they can possibly also reduce pain associated with sex. Taken before sex, cannabis can help relaxation so that the moment can be enjoyed more, and studies have shown that using cannabis can increase desire, sexual satisfaction, and intensity of orgasm.

As with any supplements, always consult with your healthcare provider before introducing cannabis or CBD into your diet or health plan.
