CBD has been found to help with a number of conditions, including period pains and PMS. You may well be using and loving the cannabinoid and now wonder, could I give CBD to my daughter?
After all, your daughter may well be suffering from the same monthly aches and moods as you do. We don’t want to watch our children or teens suffering.
Why might my daughter benefit from CBD?
When hormones first come into play, they can be pretty wild. PMS can be all over the place. Not only that, during those early few years, periods can be at their most painful and irregular.
CBD helps with period pain in a number of different ways. For one, it relaxes the smooth muscle tissue, which is the type that lines the womb. When these smooth muscles contract it causes aches and cramps. With CBD helping to relax this muscle, it should help ease the pain.
Cannabidiol is said to work with the endocannabinoid system in the human body. The CBD then interacts with our cells and may change the way in which we perceive pain.
Periods aren’t always painful though. Your daughter’s issue might be mood and PMS symptoms. CBD helps to boost serotonin and mood as a result. This might be ideal if your daughter suffers from low mood and anxiety during the month. In addition, CBD has also been found to help regulate the secretion of cortisol, the stress hormone.
Will CBD get her high?
Our Remedy CBD is broad-spectrum, meaning that it contains 0% THC. THC is the cannabinoid that produces a ‘high’ and can cause sickness, giggling, hallucinations and hunger. Full-spectrum CBD contains 0.2% THC if any, which still wouldn’t be enough to get your daughter high.
How can she take it?
A great way to take CBD is through an oil dropper. This can easily be taken as part of her daily vitamin routine. You simply squeeze the dropper under your tongue, or on the inside of your cheek.
What dose of CBD should I give my daughter?
We recommend that your daughter takes CBD daily, not just during her period. This will allow her to benefit from a mood boost, increased serotonin, reduced cortisol, less pain, and balanced hormones.
Our Remedy CBD oil is 500mg, which should be fine. However, you can always start her off on half a dropper until you can measure her tolerance to the cannabinoid.
What age can my daughter take CBD?
This cannabinoid is safe for children, so the age you choose is up to you. Remember, it will not have psychoactive effects, just therapeutic benefits.
Why choose Our Remedy CBD?
Our Remedy is designed for women, by women. For every bottle of CBD sold, we donate a packet of organic sanitary towels to a period poverty charity.
We also care about the environment. Once you have brought your bottle of CBD with a dropper, you can reuse the dropper over and over. Simply buy the next bottle with an aluminum cap to reduce your plastic consumption.
In all of our printing, we use soy ink. Again, this is because we care about the world. Soy ink is easier to recycle. You can read more about why we use soy ink on our blog.
