It seems that lately many females are looking for the help of pot companies for the period cramps: they’re selling cannabidiol vaginal suppositories, and they’re a great solution.
CBD suppository: what are you talking about?
Cannabidiol (CBD) suppositories are some pills that are supposed to be inserted in the vagina or in the rectum and then leave them there until they dissolve.
CBD is a chemical compound that represents marijuana’s therapeutic effects. It’s used to treat the pain.
Will it ease the menstrual cramps?
The evidence is not 100% sure, but they are still conducting studies on this matter. But if we are to take into account the scientific evidence, the CBD has a role in reducing the neuroinflammation from the body.
It’s very important that users know how much CBD is in the product, and if it’s actually active when they’re using it.
Is it safe to use the CBD vaginal suppository?
There’s really no proof that this whole thing will work for your period cramps. After all, if you insert anything in your vaginal canal, you can do harm. Moreover, if you use vaginals gels or wipes, you can get an infection. Really, putting anything that’s a foreign substance inside your vagina will cause you harm. That’s why it’s important for this suppositories to be analyzed before anyone uses them. What about side effects? What about the adequate dose?
If you’re thinking about getting them, you should consult your doctor before using them.
Do they have any other use?
Besides helping with the menstrual pains, they’re used for other medical issues, too. In this list, we also find fungal infections, even vaginal dryness. As said above, you need to talk to your doctor before making a decision.
