Using CBD For UTI & Menopause Relief

Using CBD For UTI & Menopause Relief

I’ve been taking CBD for a few years now and not to toot my own horn, but I was one of the first to blog about CBD for Moms in 2018. The CBD industry was just revving up and there was still a lot of confusion about it.

Here’s a Crash Course in CBD if you still don’t understand what it is or what it does: 

CBD stands for cannabidiol, which is a cannabinoid found in cannabis. Lacking psychoactive properties, CBD will not get you high like THC can. CBD has a long track record of supporting various aspects of physical and mental well-being in people and animals. Cannabinoids engage with your endocannabinoid system to produce different responses and effects in your body. The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a complex network of endocannabinoids, enzymes, and receptors that is present throughout your body. Your ECS helps manage many key bodily systems and functions. These range from sleep to mood to cognition to pain sensation and beyond. Keeping your ECS in a state of optimal balance is critical — it’s when you’ll feel and be at your best!
Goddess Well has crafted some CBD formulas SPECIFICALLY for women’s issues – and by issues, I mean the non-fun things like annoying UTIs and hot flashes from menopause. These are unavoidable and common, but it doesn’t mean we have to suffer. So when Goddess Well sent me some samples, I was excited to try the UTI & MENOPAUSE relief formulas as part of my daily supplement regimen.

CBD & UTIs

Urinary tract infections are a major women’s health concern:

  • Women have a 30x greater risk of UTIs than men.
  • About 50% of women will get a UTI once in their lifetime.
  • As many as 40% of women who get a UTI will have another one within six months.

CBD could help with UTIs in a couple of ways. If you have a UTI, CBD may help to alleviate pain and inflammation and potentially aid in the combat of the bacteria causing it. Due to its potential antibacterial qualities, CBD — when used consistently — might help prevent UTIs. If you’ve suffered from UTIs, then you’re my people. UTIs are absolutely the worse and the pain can go up to a level 10 within hours if the infection escalates. So to prevent an infection from ever getting started, I am thrilled to be proactive with my bladder health by taking the Serenity UTI Relief & Support softgel (60mg nano CBD per serving).

Goddess Well includes other natural ingredients like evening primrose and cranberry essential oil in their blends that help CBD go in for the slam dunk shot.

Evening Primrose

Studies suggest that, as an anti-inflammatory, EPO may help with many wellness matters that are important to women. These include:

  • Skin issues
  • PMS symptoms
  • Hot flashes
  • Breast soreness
  • Heart health

CBD & MENOPAUSE

It’s estimated that as many as 75% of menstruating women suffer PMS symptoms and up to 85% postmenopausal women have experienced menopause-related symptoms.
There are legions of endocannabinoid receptors in the female reproductive system. So, CBD might ease the pain, hormone-induced mood fluxes, skin breakouts, sleep difficulties, and other bothersome symptoms that are often associated with menstrual cycles. For menopausal women, CBD could do many of the same things plus possibly help with temperature regulation (hot flashes) and bone density.
Interestingly enough, there is some crossover ingredients like Evening Primrose in both the UTI and Menopause formula, so you can’t go wrong with either one!
If you’re interested in trying out a natural solution to UTI & Menopause issues, definitely check out the Goddess Well Collection and let CBD work it’s magic on your endocannabinoid system to bring relief.  Inflammation is the root of all evils/problems when it comes to disease and disfunction in the body, so it’s amazing that CBD is being formulated into blends that are truly targeting some of the most common (yet annoying) issues that women can suffer from.
