What Are CBD Tampons?
Research shows that at least 77% of women experience some sort of pain or discomfort during their period:
- Mood Swings
- Sore Muscles
It’s different for every woman but I think the vast majority of us can agree that periods, more often than not, suck. The pain sucks. The habit of running to the bathroom every two to four hours to change our tampon sucks. The fear of getting blood on the bedsheets or our jeans sucks.
But maybe, CBD tampons can make our periods more manageable and painless. According to Cannabinoid, “These tampons are typically made from hemp-derived CBD oil, cocoa butter, and coconut oil and are to be inserted vaginally. As they don’t contain any THC and are therefore entirely non-psychoactive, they offer nothing by way of a high, but after around 20 minutes consumers report feeling a dramatic decrease of pain, as well as a lightening of mood.”
And since every cycle is different, some brands make tampons with varying concentrations of CBD. You could start with 25mL to test the waters and eventually work your way up to 100mL if needed. It all depends on your level of discomfort during your period and your CBD tolerance.
