What Is Endometriosis?
Endometriosis is an average disorder that commonly affects the ovaries, pelvis interlining, and fallopian tubes. It occurs when abnormal tissue continues to grow well beyond the lining of the uterus. The growing tissue, called endometrium, is not capable of detaching itself from the rest of the body; therefore, it remains functional as if it was still inside the uterus; the result causes tissue scarring and an unnatural fusion of other tissue groups.
Typical symptoms of endometriosis display bloating, weakness, nausea, and a chance of sterility. Cyst-like growths called endometriomas may also begin to appear in the ovaries. A prevailing trait of endometriosis is the pelvic pain experienced when urinating, having sex or bowel movements, or going through menstrual cycles.
Why Use CBD For Endometriosis?
Scientists have already discovered how effective CBD can treat and decrease pain sensitivity. Ongoing studies are now exploring a link connecting the endocannabinoid system (ECS) to uterine organs which may specify in utilizing the ECS to help relieve hyperalgesia that is associated with endometriosis.
Endogenous cannabinoids that are naturally produced by the body release beneficial effects when responding to the peripheral development of irregular growths and pain signals caused by endometriosis according to the research. Clinical observations revealed that CB1 cannabinoid receptors reacting to CBD oil caused the reduction of pain sensitivity associated with endometriosis; conversely, low activity from cannabinoid receptors or insufficient amounts of cannabinoid compounds resulted with the return or increase of hyperalgesia.
