Delta 8 and Period Pain

Everyone dreads “that time of the month”. For some women, period cramps
can simply be uncomfortable and annoying, but for others it can be a
complete nightmare. All women have been forced to condition themselves to
the pain of menstrual cramps, however, some suffer from severe menstrual
conditions like endometriosis and interstitial cystitis. Thankfully, no matter
where you fall on the pain spectrum Delta 8 THC can help treat the cyclical
cramps and pelvic pain that can occur with menstruation.

The menstrual cycle is the process in which a female’s body prepares for
potential pregnancy. If a pregnancy has not occurred at the end of the cycle,
the build-up of tissue lining the uterus expels itself in the form of blood and
tissue. This process is caused by a reduction in estrogen levels which can
also result in mood swings, acne, sleep disturbances and pain. Painful uterine
cramps are common as the muscle works to expel the unnecessary tissue,
but other pains such as lower back pain and headaches are also common
during “that time of the month.” Add to that depression, nausea, bowel
problems, and muscle fatigue and you’ve got yourself a crummy 4-8 day
stretch of discomfort that most women have been forced to adjust to.

Thankfully, Delta 8 cannabis can help reduce pain associated with cramping
and tenderness, improve sleep patterns to minimize fatigue, and elevate and
stabilize one’s mood. Estrogen drops twice in an average cycle – once just
after ovulation and another time days before menstruation – which also drags
down mood-moderating serotonin levels resulting in issues like depression,
anxiety, and irritability.

Interestingly, Delta 8 cannabis may be able to increase serotonin production
and regulate its absorption thanks to the presence of cannabinoid receptors
on serotonin neurons. Consuming cannabis when serotonin levels are low
(when someone is about to start their period, for example) may therefore help
lessen the intensity of those ill effects. In other words, it’s not just the “high”
that makes you feel better but rather the way cannabinoids help regulate
hormone fluctuations so they aren’t as extreme.
