PMS and Period Symptoms
So ladies, let’s have a conversation about our periods. I know, I know, it’s not a fun conversation, but it’s the one we really need to have. For some of you lucky few ladies, your periods come and go with little drama or fan fare. It’s a moderate disruption in your month, but still, it comes and goes. For ladies like myself, it’s a life ruiner! Mind numbingly painful cramps, mood swings, bloating, cravings, oh and did I mention mood swings and cramps? After an exceptionally painful monthly experience I decided I needed to look for a better way to manage my cycle and take control of the situation.
So what were my options for taking control of my period? I wanted something natural that could help with the symptoms of PMS, but wouldn’t impact my capacity to get things done. I needed more than heating pads and warm baths, but didn’t want prescription pain pills.
Some of you may be asking “what is CBD oil”? CBD oil is a naturally occurring compound found in the hemp plant. CBD oil has minimal amounts of THC, if any, and will not get you high. Sugar and Kush CBD has no THC.
The issues that arise when “Aunt Flo” comes to town can be real problematic. I chose the CBD gummies for convenience when out in public. It’s easier to pop in a gummy while at the office or sitting in traffic than trying to administer drops under your tongue.
Some of you may be thinking, “What are the side effects of CBD gummies or oil?” It’s a valid question. What I can tell you is that I haven’t experienced any side effects, but there are some reports that you need to talk to your doctor before mixing it with prescription drugs and that it can affect the liver. We’re all unique so your experience may be different than mine.
