Endometriosis – the reason many sufferers are turning to CBD to alleviate and manage their symptoms

Endometriosis is a long-term condition where tissue cells similar to those in the womb grow in other places, such as the fallopian tubes and ovaries. An often misunderstood and misdiagnosed condition, endometriosis affects 1 in 10 women in the UK and 10% of women worldwide.[1] Endometriosis can cause severe period cramps, lower back pain and internal inflammation; unlike the cells leaving the body as a period, when the excess tissue cells break down outside of the womb, the blood has nowhere to go and this build up causes the inflammation and cramps.

Sufferers of endometriosis are often told to just ‘put up with the pain’ as period cramps are considered a universal female experience; many women without endometriosis also suffer from painful, heavy periods and often have to accept the pain each month. However, within the endometriosis community many methods of self-care and pain treatments are often shared and recommended as an alternative to over-the-counter pain medication. Although the cause of endometriosis is unknown and there is no definite cure, CBD has emerged as a successful treatment in helping alleviate and manage the symptoms silently suffered by so many women.

In its optimal state, the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) causes natural cell growth and death at a regulated, healthy rate- this process is known as apoptosis. For sufferers of endometriosis, the apoptosis is unregulated and the tissue cells keep growing, spreading to other parts of the body rather than remaining in the womb. As CBD works to balance the ECS and restore the body to its natural functioning state, taking CBD can help alleviate some of the pain felt on a daily basis, reducing inflammation and sensitising the nerves that transmit pain.  

The impacts of endometriosis are not solely physical; many women also suffer from mental health problems such as depression and insomnia as a result of the constant chronic pain. CBD can be a great help in balancing your mental, as well as physical state, as balancing the ECS aids the body in improving sleep quality and easing anxiety. Mee’s water soluble CBD formula means you get up to 9x more absorption than the standard CBD oils and is a product that can be easily incorporated into your everyday life, no matter what your symptoms or reasons for using CBD. Mixing a teaspoon of Mee CBD powder into your morning cup of tea can help to ease morning cramps, and the Mee Drops are an easy alternative to carry in your handbag throughout the day for when pain flares unexpectedly. Each pre-measured dose of Mee contains 20mg of CBD, which can prove therapeutic whether you choose to take it every day or just when you feel the symptoms of endometriosis particularly badly at certain times.

For the 1.5 million women who suffer from endometriosis in the UK[2], the anti-inflammatory and stress reducing features of CBD could prove vital in helping to manage pain and alleviate symptoms, providing a natural alternative to pain medication that helps to restore the body back to its natural balance.
