CBD and PCOS – could it really help?

In the UK, 1 in 10 women will suffer from PCOS, with its prevalence rapidly increasing due to unhealthy habits. Polycystic ovary syndrome, or PCOS, is a condition that affects how the ovaries work. 

Symptoms of PCOS include:

  • Irregular periods or absent periods
  • Heavy periods
  • Difficulty getting pregnant due to ovulation issues
  • Weight gain
  • Hair growth on face, chest, back or buttocks
  • Thinning hair and hair loss from the head
  • Oily skin and acne
  • Headaches
  • Darkening of skin and skin tags

Also, did you know that, those with PCOS are 3 times more likely to be diagnosed with anxiety and depression?  However, the connection between both conditions isn’t fully understood yet.

If you have the condition you may also suffer from hormonal headaches, heavy periods and mood swings.

Other sequelae of PCOS

  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure 
  • Heart diseases
  • High cholesterol
  • Sleep apnea
  • Stroke 

CBD oil for my PCOS symptoms

CBD may help with PCOS. According to researches, CBD is useful in many gynaecological problems, PCOS being one of them. In this blog, I will share the main ways in which it may help, from my friend Hannah’s real life experience.

Anxiety 

cbd and pcos related anxiety

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.

For Hannah, getting a proper nights sleep made such a difference to her mood and anxiety and adding CBD oil into her night time routine made such a difference.

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

You might find you get a hormonal headache just before your period starts, this is due to changes in hormone levels. There has been some anecdotal evidence to suggest that CBD oil helps with managing headaches during this time. Apart from hormonal headaches, it has proven to be of great help in migraines as well.

Hannah noticed how much more manageable her migraines and hormonal headaches were and they were no longer holding back her life.
