That time of the month can bring a host of physical aches and pains including nausea, fatigue, headaches, and of course the dreaded cramps. You can of course take painkillers for your cramps, but if you’re looking for more natural remedies, then these two CBD products may be just the thing you need to ease the pain.
The aptly named Monthly Calm is a newly launched pack of CBD liquid soft-gel capsules from Create Better Days. The capsules include a variety of natural goodness to help “bring comfort closer” including broad spectrum CBD, cramp bark, chamomile, fennel and magnesium. Each capsule contains 25mg of CBD and you’re directed to take 3 capsules a day evenly spaced.
Speaking from experience, the capsules work – and in a much more refreshing way than regular painkillers. The latter simply stop you from feeling the pain, whereas Monthly Calm gently eases the discomfort whilst also giving you the calmness and relaxation that is a benefit of CBD. If you suffer from cramps (or other period-related symptoms) then you should definitely give Monthly Calm a go, as it’ll likely become a staple in your medicine cabinet.
Apothem Multi Skin Balm
I’m a big fan of Apothem’s CBD products and have had my best nights’ sleep after taking their Lights Out oil drops. But one product of theirs that has been a surprisingly great addition at that time of the month is their Multi CBD skin balm.
The balm combines pure CBD with green tea oil, mango butter, and hemp seed oil that not only moisturises the skin, but also delivers a refreshing and soothing effect where and when you use it. It’s a great way to nourish the skin while also easing tension when used around the abdomen – definitely something to add to your routine!
