CBD for Endometriosis
Could CBD Cure Endometriosis Naturally? We list clinical studies.
Our ECS maintains the cells and systems responsible for endometriosis.
Cannabinoids can alleviate the brain fog associated with Endometriosis
Cannabinoids could help the body destroy the ‘alien; endometrial cells and prevent them from spreading.
Cannabinoids are effective analgesics and alleviate pain.
Cannabinoids can combat the auto-immune issues you can get from Endometriosis by decreasing inflammation.
What is Endometriosis?
Endometriosis often called ‘endo’ occurs when your endometrial cells grow outside your uterus. The endometrium cells are perfectly healthy if they stay inside your uterus —our period is the monthly shedding of those cells.
But, when they grow in other parts of your vagina, your bowel, bladder, or rectum they cause severe pain and discomfort. These cells behave every month the same way as our healthy ‘period cells’ —the tissue will grow, thicken, and break down. Over time, the dead tissue has nowhere to go and becomes trapped and inflamed. This is more common than you think, 11% of women have this condition in the US.
Currently, endometriosis has no cure. If we can cure an erection we should be able to cure this, but we can’t, yet. So doctors use medication to try to treat the endometriosis symptoms, and at times encourage surgery to remove the dead tissue. Endometriosis surgery is very invasive and often will have to be performed more than once.
We do strongly believe that therapeutic doses of CBD, can be a potential treatment of endometriosis. If we regulate the ECS we could stop endometriosis flare-ups, and decrease the pain and inflammation associated with endometriosis. We recommend taking our Mello Bottoms, a rectal or vaginal suppository that packs 75MG of CBD. We recommend taking this three days before your expected flow.
Periods suck, every *28 days we have to endure it. But can you imagine having your monthly also showing up in your bowel? The most common symptom of endometriosis is chronic pain and inflammation. But there are various symptoms:
- Very severe PMS pain.
- Chronic back and lower pelvis pain.
- Painful sex, which occurs deep inside your vagina, during sex not upon generation.
- Blood in your stool or urine.
- Heavy periods and spotting between your periods.
- Digestion issues —often called endo belly.
No one knows yet. But the most popular and longest-held is that Menstrual blood accidentally flows the wrong way. This seems whacky but it is widely accepted and is termed ‘Retrograde Menstrual Flow’. Doctors believe that the main cause of endometriosis is when some of your menstrual blood (containing endometrial cells) flows the wrong way and heads out your fallopian tubes to other parts of your body.
Lately, more doctors are beginning to believe that our Endocannabinoid System may play a large role in endometriosis. And could actually cause endometriosis flare-ups when not operating effectively. This study shows that ECS modulation through therapeutic doses of cannabinoids could be a potential cure to combat endometriosis.
Other potential causes of endometriosis:
Genetics – it may just run in your family.
Faulty Immune System – Perhaps a little menstrual blood does leak to other parts of your body, doctors believe your body should be able to destroy this. So your immune system is to blame.
Hormones – estrogen feeds endometrial cells. So is your body producing too much?
Previous Surgery – perhaps during a lower abdomen surgery, like a c-section, endometrial cells may have been picked up and moved somewhere else.
