How CBD Can Help With PMDD?

It is obvious that you may have heard of PMS, but have you ever heard of PMDD? Women may at one point in their life experience PMS (Premenstrual Syndrome) and if that's not bad enough some go through something even more intense and severe and we call this PMDD (Premenstrual Dysphoric Syndrome).

What is PMDD?

PMDD is a much more severe form of PMS and affects some women during their childbearing age.

PMDD affects about 10% of women.

People affected by PMDD go through PMS symptoms like bloating, headaches and breast tenderness, but with PMDD they experience severe anxiety, nervousness, extreme irritability, anger, lack of sleep, fatigue, depression and changes in mood on top of that. In very severe cases some people may become suicidal as well.

There is no known cause of PMDD, but experts believe that PMDD exists due to abnormal reactions to changes in hormones in your body during the menstrual cycle. They also believe that the menstrual cycle causes a decrease in the amount of serotonin. Serotonin is a chemical that is produced by your nerve cells. Serotonin is found throughout your body including the brain. Serotonin regulates many essential body functions such as mood, anxiety, happiness, sleep and it also helps regulate bowel movement or even blood clothing.

PMDD is a severe and a chronic medical condition that requires medical attention and treatment. Changes in diet, regular exercise, vitamins supplements, stress management, and medications like anti-inflammatory, Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRI) and birth control pills. What about CBD? Would CBD be another form of treatment to help manage symptoms of PMDD? CBD is safe, non-intoxicating and has minimal side effects.

Here's how CBD can help with Premenstrual Dysphoric Syndrome:

CBD has antidepressants property and a plus point for PMDD.
