CBD for Women: The Uses and Benefits

by Taylor Hogan

Finding a balance between the chaos of everyday life can be difficult. As women, we would love to eat a home-cooked superfood meal and reach our workout goals every day.

It's easy for us to feel off-balance with the constant pressures we are facing from social media. According to a study by Deloitte and PWC, women are more apt to being influenced by social media than men.

The reality is achieving balance in life isn't easy. However, the power of hemp has revealed a natural solution to improve your overall wellness. Here in this article, we'll explore how CBD can work naturally with women and their bodies to help them achieve a general sense of well-being and balance.

The Endocannabinoid System & How CBD Works for Women

To better understand the ways CBD can aid women, understanding how exactly CBD works with the body is the best place to start. We can conclude from Populum's customer testimonials that CBD is working for them and making a difference in their lives, but what is the science behind it? It all has to do with the body's endocannabinoid system and the regulation of hormones.

Scientists discovered a complex network of neurons that work to regulate every biological action, including sleep, appetite, the immune system, energy levels, reproduction, and memory. This system is called your Endocannabinoid System, or ECS for short. To learn more about the details, check out our How the Endocannabinoid System Works blog post.

Early research shows that cannabinoids such as cannabidiol (CBD) work with the ECS to regulate the body's response systems. The body naturally produces cannabinoids, but they can be depleted through stress, alcohol, lack of sleep, or poor diet.

Keeping your ECS functioning is key to overall wellness. Taking CBD is a great way to supplement cannabinoids that work in your ECS. You can also boost your ECS by eating well and exercising.

CBD as Part of a Self-care Routine

"Self-care" seems to be the word of 2021, especially considering we're all experiencing trying times with the ongoing global pandemic. So what does self-care mean? And how do women achieve a self-care routine? Self-care is more than just doing a face mask or taking a bath; it's alleviating the stresses in your life and taking steps to holistically take care of your body.

When it comes down to it, a self-care routine should be fulfilling what your body needs. What that looks like to you should be unique to you. Whether it's adding fruits and vegetables to your diet, or taking an extra walk daily, consider what you need to find the most balance and feel your best. CBD can be an excellent supplement for mental and physical wellness, and its effects are amplified when paired with a consistent self-care routine.

Your skin is continuously exposed to the elements: sun, toxins, and dry air. CBD skincare has recently gained popularity and is often used for its anti-inflammatory properties. Populum's Lavender + CBD Face Oil combines the benefits of CBD with the anti-aging properties of lavender oil. You may also consider a DIY face mask for a deep-penetrating CBD treatment.

Populum Customer, Britt E. said, “I have acne prone skin and have to be extremely careful when it comes to what I put on my face. I discovered facial oil about a year ago and have found it works wonders on my skin. When my usual facial oil ran out I decided to try a facial oil with CBD and have since fallen in love!

The Bottom Line

Whatever wellness goals you are looking to achieve, it's no secret that women face a unique set of challenges when it comes to their wellness. It's easy to fall for a synthetic health product that claims to be a cure-all, but having realistic expectations and doing your research can help you choose the right products. CBD harnesses the power of hemp in a natural form.

But most importantly, remember the goal doesn't have to be perfection. What's most important is finding the right balance unique to your health and feeling the best you can. It's okay to feel bloated some days. It's okay to experience adverse symptoms that come with being a woman. Your body is amazing - give it a break and treat it right - that's what true self-care is all about!
