Every month the female’s body gets ready for pregnancy. This is called the menstrual cycle. However, when pregnancy doesn’t occur, menstruation does. This is when the female body rids of the lining of the uterus. This is known as a period, or menstruation. Common symptoms of menstruation are increased hormone levels, tiredness, pain, tender breasts, bloating and mood changes. Studies have shown that medical cannabis and CBD could be used to reduce the symptoms associated with menstruation.
Cannabis is the most commonly abused illegal drug in the world. According to the statistics from the National Survey on
A female will usually get their first period anywhere between the ages of 10 and 16 years old. If a girl hasn’t started their period by the age of 16, it is very rare and is considered to be delayed onset menstruation. If this is the case, it’s best to seek medical advice. In America, 97.5% of women had the start of their menstrual cycle by the time they turned 16.
While this cycle seems pretty straight forward, periods can cause a lot of complications, some being a lot more complicated than others, for example, only 12% of young girls with periods have access to the products they need. 100 million young people lack access to adequate menstrual products.
Every woman is different in terms of their menstrual cycle, some may suffer severe symptoms and their period may last up to a week long, while other woman don’t suffer from symptoms, and may only have their period for a couple of days. However, once in a while, periods can become a girls worst nightmare, and the symptoms can be overwhelming.
