As someone who very often suffers from monthly cramps, I was very intrigued when I saw a tweet seeking reviewers for a CBD Monthly Wellness Capsules. I am naturally very cautious about anything I ingest, so before I agreed to take part in this campaign, I asked some key questions about the product and this is what I found:
Place of Manufacture: The capsules are made in Kentucky. CBD is not a medical product, it’s a food supplement so there was no clinical trial. Tested in Laboratory, no pesticides, non-GMO
Ingredients: CBD isolate, cramp bark, chaste berry tree, dong quai, valerian root, caffeine, MCT oil
Benefits: CBD and its anti-inflammatory properties will help calm cramps, headaches and other discomforts periods can bring along
I reviewed their website and it confirmed what I was told about the CBD Monthly Wellness Capsules. The website also stated:
Your monthly aid has arrived – a tablet with a unique blend of organically grown ingredients to produce the only supplement you need, when you need it. The Monthly Wellness capsules make your time of the month YOUR time of the month again.
How to take CBD Monthly Wellness Capsules
The suggested dosage on the pack states:
Take two capsules, up to four times a day and adjust usage as needed. Consult with your physician for optimal amount.
What do the experts say?
I still wasn’t satisfied, so I needed to find out what experts on the subject had to say on CBD use. Here’s what I found:
In the article “Exploring cannabis use by patients with multiple sclerosis in a state where cannabis is legal” published in the journal Multiple Scelrosis and related disorders Mult Scler Relat Disord. 2019 Jan;27:383-390. doi: 10.1016/j.msard.2018.11.022. Epub 2018 Nov 20, it was stated that “cannabis users experienced greater than 60% benefit/relief from cannabis use“.
In the article “Chronic Pain Treatment With Cannabidiol (CBD) in Kidney Transplant Patients in Uruguay” published in the journal Transplantation proceedings Transplant Proc. 2018 Mar;50(2):461-464. doi: 10.1016/j.transproceed.2017.12.042, it was stated that “two patients had total pain improvement, 4 had a partial response in the first 15 days, and in 1 there was no change.”
What do I think?
Whilst I am no expert, I feel much more confident giving these capsules a try. As it is not yet that time of the month at the time I’m writing this post but you can be rest assured, if and when the need arises, I would not hesitate to give these capsules a try.
What I would suggest, if you want to consider taking these capsules for cramps, is for you to speak with your doctor or healthcare professional if you take any other medication. This is to ensure that there are no interactions with the medications you currently take.
