CBD Oil For Natural Hormone Balance and Menstrual Cramp Relief

Cannabinoids’ anti-inflammatory, pain-relieving, and muscle-relaxing effects interact with your menstrual cycle in important ways that provide functional support for your hormones and period cramps. To complement the benefits of CBD, we blended each product in the Natural Cycle collection with organic and wildcrafted herbs and oils known for their soothing, balancing, and anti-inflammatory properties.

You Asked. We Answered.

When we launched our first line of full spectrum CBD products, we received a lot of questions about using CBD oil for menstrual cramps, whether hemp affects hormones, and how CBD affects the menstrual cycle. We listened, learned, and teamed up with an extraordinary team of women to craft our natural cycle hemp collection to provide functional support for your hormones during your period and throughout the month. 

How Does CBD Work?

CBD interacts with our body’s endocannabinoid system in various ways. However, research suggests that there are 2 main pathways by which CBD works to help alleviate cramps, period pain, and mood fluctuations. These include inhibiting the enzymes that catalyze the production of prostaglandins as well as inhibiting the breakdown of our body’s own cannabinoid anandamide.


Much of the discomfort you experience during different stages of the menstrual cycle arises from hormonal fluctuations and the production of prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are hormone-like substances involved in inflammation and their production is triggered both during ovulation and the onset of your period. Scientists think that prostaglandins are behind much of the pain we experience during these times. By inhibiting the enzymes that lead to prostaglandin production, CBD may alleviate menstrual cramps, pain, and discomfort.

Anandamide is known as our body’s pleasure or bliss molecule and is involved in almost all biological processes that take place within the human body. One of two major endocannabinoids produced by the human body, anandamide is involved in regulating processes related to pain, mood, stress, anxiety, inflammation, sleep, neuronal signaling, motivation, metabolism, cognition, fertility, and hormone balance.

Studies indicate that anandamide levels drop during the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle. This phase occurs following ovulation and ends just before a menstrual period. Typically, this phase and coinciding drop in anandamide is when over 90% of women report experiencing negative premenstrual symptoms that can include fluctuations in mood, stomach upset, fatigue, headaches, cramping and more. Scientists believe that by inhibiting the breakdown of anandamide, CBD can lead to increased anandamide levels in the body. These higher levels of anandamide are thought to help negate the uncomfortable premenstrual symptoms experienced by the majority of women who menstruate.

Why Choose Ned’s Hemp Oil Products For Your Cycle?

Other CBD products for cramps and natural hormone balance can’t compare. We are confident, and our botanist assures us, that the Natural Cycle Collection is not only unique in its formulation but that it is the highest quality assortment of hemp period products on the market. Whether you’re new to CBD oil or an experienced full spectrum hemp aficionado, there are a lot of reasons to choose Ned’s hemp extracts for natural hormone balance and optimizing your monthly cycle.

Premium Hemp Flower Extracts

Our full spectrum CBD extracts are made using only organically grown hemp flowers. Hemp flowers or buds have trichome cells that create cannabinoids, terpenes, and other therapeutic bioactive compounds. To ensure purity along with the greatest potency of active ingredients we never dilute our extracts with leaves, stalks, stems, or any other non-flower part of the hemp plant. 

Full Spectrum Hemp Oil

Unlike brands that use CBD distillate, an isolated, pure form of CBD, we believe the greatest benefits lie in consuming CBD alongside all of the other therapeutic compounds found in hemp flowers. CBD oils containing the whole array of powerful hemp flower active ingredients found in hemp flowers are known as full spectrum hemp oils.

The trichomes found in hemp flowers produce not just CBD, but a rich array of bioactive substances that include other minor cannabinoids like CBC or CBG, terpenes, and flavonoids. Each of these compounds have their own unique therapeutic properties, and research suggests that by way of what has been dubbed the “entourage effect” cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids work together to enhance each other’s desired effects. Research suggests that the effects of full spectrum hemp oil are more profound than those observed with CBD isolate alone.

The Highest Quality Ingredients

We use only organic, wildcrafted and ethical ingredients because we don’t want to taint you or the planet with pesticides, chemical additives, synthetic ingredients or other contaminants. You can feel safe knowing we do our homework to procure the cleanest, purest, most natural ingredients from the most reputable sources.

Created By Women For Women

From the two incredible grandmothers who organically grew our hemp, to the artist who designed the packaging, the natural cycle collection was created for humans who menstruate by humans who menstruate.

Cold And Gentle Extraction Process

We treat our precious hemp flowers with care every step of the way. To retain the greatest concentration of therapeutic bioactive compounds we use a slow, organic food-grade ethanol extraction method at -40°F. This helps preserve the cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids in their most natural form. Following extraction, residual ethanol is gently lifted leaving a clean, pure, and aromatic full-spectrum hemp oil. 

Hand Crafted With Love And Integrity

From seed to bottle, each local hand that touches Ned’s products belongs to a human who shares our love of naturalism, respect for the environment, and belief in a “plants over pills” approach to wellness. If you want to support a small, local company full of people who are dedicated to making the world a better place, giving back and always striving to do better, we promise you won’t regret your decision to shop with us.

Does CBD Affect the Menstrual Cycle?

CBD or cannabidiol oil has the capacity to affect the menstrual cycle by interacting with the body’s endocannabinoid system. Generally, CBD oil promotes homeostasis or balance throughout every system in the body, which can help regulate hormonal balance and alleviate negative premenstrual symptoms like cramps.

Research suggests that CBD affects the menstrual cycle through 2 main physiological pathways that include boosting levels of the endocannabinoid anandamide, and helping to inhibit the production of hormone-like substances that lead to inflammation.

If you are pregnant or trying to get pregnant, consult your doctor about taking CBD oil. Otherwise, CBD is generally safe to take for period cramps, hormonal balance, and menstrual discomfort.

What Causes Period Cramps?

During your menstrual period, pro-inflammatory hormone-like substances called prostaglandins are produced by the body to trigger inflammation and uterine muscle contractions that help the uterus expel its lining. These substances are thought to be the cause of period cramps and higher levels of prostaglandins are associated with more severe menstrual cramps.

What Helps Period Cramps?

Anti-inflammatory substances are the main form of pain relief recommended for period cramps. Experts believe that herbal remedies containing anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic compounds can reduce the muscle contractions and swelling associated with period cramps.

When combating period cramps, many women opt for nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAIDs like Ibuprofen. Although NSAIDs are reportedly effective at relieving menstrual cramps, they come with numerous negative side effects including gas, bloating, heartburn, stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and/or constipation, and can increase your risk for internal bleeding, stomach ulcers, high blood pressure, stroke, heart attack, and kidney problems.

Studies have demonstrated that when compared to NSAIDs cannabinoids such as CBD, especially in the form of full spectrum hemp oil, are up to twenty times more potent anti-inflammatory agents.

Does Hemp Oil Help With Menstrual Cramps?

Hemp oil is rich in cannabinoids like CBD, which have various anti-inflammatory and pain mediating effects. As such hemp oil is often selected as an all-natural pain relief method for alleviating menstrual cramps. Although we have not identified any peer-reviewed clinical studies examining the effects of hemp on menstrual cramps, research suggests that full spectrum hemp oil may help by reducing levels of pro-inflammatory prostaglandins, increasing levels of anandamide, and other anti-inflammatory activities.

Based on reviews from our customers, many women report experiencing significant cramp relief following regular use of our full spectrum hemp oil products.

What Essential Oils Are Good For Balancing Hormones?

Studies suggest that a variety of essential oils are good for balancing hormones. Clary sage, lavender, evening primrose, ylang ylang, peppermint, rose, rosemary, and thyme essential oils are particularly good for restoring and maintaining hormonal balance.

In the Natural Cycle Collection, we’ve combined these hormone balancing essential oils along with full spectrum hemp oil as well as various herbs and botanicals to create the ultimate mix of powerful active ingredients for finding balance throughout your cycle.
