Each stage of a woman’s life can create a unique set of challenges to her mental and overall physical health. Even before the pandemic, many were looking to CBD* to aid in their management of stress, pain, anxiety and even fight inflammation— all without the psychoactive “high.”
Not surprisingly, there are multiple other reasons that you should incorporate CBD into your lifestyle, especially as a woman. Scientific research indicates that CBD may provide the answers to a variety of women’s health issues like anxiety, stress, hormonal imbalances, sexual performance and sleep disorders. Let’s talk about a few important benefits that CBD has to offer women, as well as how to properly use your CBD for the best results.
One easy way to incorporate CBD into your routine—for a multitude of benefits— is in a bath. Baths alone can help promote circulation, muscle and mental relaxation and help to release toxins from the body, as well as being considered spiritually cleansing. To amplify these effects, add SunMed water soluble to a warm cup of tea or beverage of your choice and soak for 20 minutes in a soothing CBD bath with SunMed bath bombs or new bath soaks (available holiday 2020). This can be especially helpful for cramps and other muscle tension.
One of the most annoying and painful parts of being a woman is dealing with periods and all that they entail—cramps, bloating, mood swings, headaches—ugh, this list can go on-and-on!
When your period begins, sometimes the gut reaction is to reach for a pill to “take that edge off,” even though we know NSAIDS can have negative side effects, especially when taken regularly. Unlike NSAIDs, CBD anti-inflammatory benefits come without the side effects but offer similar relief. Our favorite method of relief is to massage your lower abdomen—or wherever you feel the most pain—with SunMed CBD full-spectrum topical, which will help ease the discomfort of contractions and inflammation.
Let’s be real: man, woman or child, we all get cravings every once in a while—and they usually aren’t for broccoli and brussel sprouts! If you need a little help battling the need for sweets, a CBD gummy can add that extra boost of sugar and tame cravings.
No one wants to talk about it, but it’s something that all women will have to go through, eventually: menopause.

Women rarely know what to expect when menopause starts, and it can be years of suffering through hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, sleeplessness, anxiety and depression. If you’re facing menopause, you may be turning to traditional herbal medicines for natural support. An increasing number of studies show the positive effects that CBD can have on menopausal women.
A 2019 study confirmed the success rate of CBD at 78% in alleviating anxiety-related problems, as well as a 66% success rate alleviating signs of depression in women going through menopause.
Even if you aren’t suffering from any particular ailment or issue, CBD and yoga wellness classes are a fabulous way to keep your body and mind happy and healthy. If you get a little sore after, just rub some CBD topical to sore joints and muscles.
