Endometriosis is the chameleon of gynecology because the symptoms express in very different ways. Severely affected women are hoping for an alternative solution with CBG. Maybe you too?
Based on experience and studies, we will explain to you whether CBG can help with endometriosis. We also reveal which CBG oil is best for you and what you should pay attention to when taking it.
What is Endometriosis
Endometriosis is a painful condition in which foci of inflammation and cysts attach to the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and other places in the abdomen. This docking tissue, which resembles the uterus lining (endometrium), grows incorrectly outside the uterus.
The endometrial tissue reacts to the hormonal changes in the body, just as it does in the uterus. Every month, the lining of the uterus builds up, breaks down again and gets excreted.
Women often experience pain for years before a proper diagnosis. This is due to the unclear causation.
The 6 most common symptoms of endometriosis:
- Severe cramps during menstruation
- Painful urination or bowel movements
- Painful intercourse
- Chronic pain in the lower back, abdomen, or pelvis
- Nausea, diarrhea, or constipation
- Difficulty getting pregnant, including infertility
How does CBG work for endometriosis?
People around the world use hemp extracts and medicinal cannabis for endometriosis. For thousands of years, humans have successfully combated gynecological issues like cramps and others with cannabis.
But it was only through the non-psychoactive CBG oil that this alternative treatment method came to the fore.
In the following we will look at the 8 ways CBG works for endometriosis:
CBG relieves pain
CBG can relieve nerve pain. In severe endometriosis, the pain penetrates deeper into the abdominal tissue. One reason for this may be that they contain a much higher density of nerves than other lesions. Endocannabinoids regulate nerve growth.
On the other hand, CBG generally reduces the sensation of pain and is able to desensitize the TRPV1 pain receptor.
CBG helps with mental stress
Many women are emotionally stressed by the strong and recurring pain. This releases stress hormones such as cortisol, adrenaline and noradrenaline. CBG can rebalance hormones by regulating the endocannabinoid system. In other words, it regulates sleep, anxiety and feelings of depression.
CBG has a relaxing effect
Menstrual cramps get worse by the contracting of the smooth muscles that line the uterus.
We know that cannabinoids have a relaxing effect on different receptors in muscle tissue. Blood vessels also have a lining of smooth muscle, and when cannabinoids stimulate these smooth muscles to relax, blood flow increases. Increasing blood flow could help relieve oxygen-depleted tissues and reduce painful cramps.
CBG can affect fertility
Anandamide plays a major role here. This hormone triggers joy and happiness. CBG can increase anandamide levels and help ovulate successfully.
CBG can also activate the serotonin (5-HT1A) receptors directly, which lifts mood and promotes relaxation. Stress has a negative impact on fertility in both men and women. By reducing stress, CBG can have a positive impact on fertility.
Do I have to expect side effects with CBG oil?
CBG users say little or no side effects. Here are the 4 most common side effects:
- Dry mouth
- Low blood pressure
- Influence on the effect of drugs
Often these four relates to poor quality products. In comparison with conventional treatment methods, the side effects of CBG oil are rather harmless. Common therapies include:
- Surgical therapy = removal of the diseased tissue through the abdominal wall
- Pain therapy = administration of medication such as ibuprofen, tramadol, etc.
- Hormone therapy = giving hormones to reduce pain during menstruation
3 tips for taking CBG for endometriosis
- Start taking CBG from day one
- Put the drops under the tongue 15-30 minutes after a meal
- For a more effective impact, you can drip the CBG oil on a tampon and insert it vaginally
The right dosage of CBG oil for endometriosis – This is how it works! Everybody reacts differently. Therefore, you should find out for yourself which dosage is optimal for you. The following method proves to be promising with users:
- Start with a low dose
- Take 1-2 drops of a 5% oil a day. We recommend a 10% oil with more severe symptoms
- Stick to the initial dose for 3 days
- Watch exactly how your body reacts during this time. The best-case scenario is to take notes that you can refer to later.
- In this way, a basic level of CBG is gradually built up in your body
Every 3 days draw a conclusion: If you achieve the desired effect, then stick to the daily dosage. If you do not achieve this, increase the dosage by one drop.
Perform this three-day check and increase the dosage until the desired effect occurs. It can take up to 4-5 weeks to find your optimal dose.
How is the experience with CBG in endometriosis?
Women suffering from endometriosis who take CBG for abdominal pain and depressive moods report less severe pain. Many can even cut their pain medication intake in half. In addition, they express a better sleep and feel much more balanced by taking Cannabigerol.
Standardized medical advice for endometriosis is currently not available and is years away due to the unclear cause. Scientists are on and about to uncover how exactly CBG affects endometriosis.
Careful self-experimentation is the best way to determine the optimal combination of cannabinoids to complement an endometriosis treatment. Of course, in consultation with your gynecologist.
Patients also express their positive experiences in pain and nerve treatment. Therefore, we believe we can realistically alleviate the symptoms of endometriosis with CBG.
Before making changes to the treatment of endometriosis, you should consult with a doctor you trust. We don’t guarantee a positive effect from CBG, and we don’t completely rule out the side effects and interactions.
