Can CBD help PCOS?

CBD may help with PCOS. According to researches, CBD is useful in many gynaecological problems, PCOS being one of them. In this blog, we will share the main ways in which we have heard it might help.

There are a number of proven ways CBD may help reduce anxiety. For example it may help you to relax, help your body use its serotonin and give you a good night’s rest. All of these might help contribute to you feeling less anxious. You can read a more indepth look at CBD for anxiety here

Getting pregnant

CBD isn’t the magical dose that will get you pregnant, however, it does contain Omega 3 fatty acids. This might help to boost egg quality and lower inflammation as well as in regulation of hormones. Having healthy eggs is very important to ensure a successful pregnancy. Not only that, but Omega 3 has been considered to help with ovulation, hormone regulation and cervical mucus – all of which are paramount when it comes to getting pregnant. 

 It must be used with caution and after consulting your physician during pregnancy. Read more about CBD and fertility here.

Weight gain 

You may think that something that comes from cannabis is going to make you want to eat 6 bags of Monster Munch and 2 pots of Ben and Jerry’s. It is THC that makes you feel super hungry, which isn’t in Our Remedy CBD. CBD actually won’t increase your appetite, and studies in rats have shown that it may actually reduce it. Fewer calories in = weight loss. We prove our stance by citing a research paper published in support of CBD actually helping increasing metabolism and weight loss.

Mood swings

Mood swings can affect us and those around us. Not pleasant for anyone. According to research, CBD may help your body to use its own serotonin and give it a boost. In turn, this can enhance your mood and make you feel a little more balanced. Not only that, but it may have a calming effect. 

Hormonal headaches
