Prioritizing your health and wellness should be on top of your ‘to-do’s, especially as we continue to juggle the many musts that come with being a multi-faceted working woman in today’s world. The power of Hemp has generated a lot of buzz over the years and for good reason. The health benefits range from pain management and sleep support, to treating anxiety, migraines and more. For women, Hemp can offer some added benefits too.
Hormonal Imbalance & PMS: Women may experience hormonal imbalances at various stages of life and for a number of reasons. Some are turning to Hemp as it may provide relief due to its ability to help regulate the secretion of the stress-activating hormone cortisol. Stress is a main side effect of hormonal imbalance, so alleviating this symptom is a step in the right direction. This may also have a positive impact on PMS and period cramps, a win-win in our book.
Skincare, Acne and Beauty: As we age, our skin changes due to environmental factors such as the sun and air pollution, as well as due to hormonal imbalances and nutrient related deficiencies. Many women young and old suffer from acne, and Hemp has been shown to be an effective treatment. Beyond that, various skincare and beauty brands have begun including HEMP oil in their products due to the serious antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits that are known to have many benefits for your skin. Finding the right products that work for you is key, but utilizing the natural benefits of Hemp is an ingredient worth exploring.
Pain Relief: We all experience different levels of pain; however, many women share in the agony of migraines, cramps and other physical ailments. Hemp is known to help alleviate pain due its effects on the body’s central and peripheral nervous systems, as it works in conjunction with our endocannabinoid system to decrease inflammation and act as that natural pain reliever we could all use.
Like with any health and wellness trend, the most important thing is to find what works for you. Whenever you are trying something new or introducing a different element into or onto your body, start small. See how your body reacts and make adjustments based on how you feel. From beverages like sparkling waters to new skincare products and serums, find whatever works for your specific needs and stick with it.
