Premenstrual syndrome is defined as a group of changes that affect women physically, emotionally and/or behaviorally. These changes occur 1 to 2 weeks before a woman’s period starts and disappear at the beginning of or a few days after the start of the period.
What are the symptoms of PMS?
Improve your lifestyle: Having a healthy diet, doing sports, avoiding excitants such as alcohol or cigarettes, sleeping well are among the advice given by doctors. Certain nutrients are also recommended (zinc, calcium, vitamin B6. ).
Side effects of CBD
There are 3 more or less effective and complementary solutions for treating PMS today.
CBD is a major ingredient in cannabis plants (like hemp and marijuana). It comes in different strengths and forms, often as CBD oil, but also in pills and powders. It can be absorbed through the skin, ingested, or inhaled. (Vaping it, however, may not be safe, as this blog post and web page from the CDC explain.)
First, what is CBD?
Testing shows purity and dosage can be unreliable in many products. One study found less than a third of the products tested had the amount of CBD shown on the label. Another study of 84 CBD products bought online showed that more than a quarter of the products contained less CBD than stated. In addition, THC (the component that can make you feel high) was found in 18 products.
Does CBD cause side effects?
Because CBD products aren’t regulated by the FDA in the way that drugs are, there is huge variation in quality and, quite possibly, safety. In 2017–2018, counterfeit CBD oil was found that contained synthetic cannabinoids and led to a poisoning outbreak in Utah.
