There are an average of 131.4 million births per year. Many pregnant women undergo the same procedures, receive the same medications and labor practices. While most opt for a clearly prepared pregnancy, others seek a more natural route.
Pregnancy is a very special time in a woman’s life, however, that doesn’t mean everything will be simple. Some common pregnancy problems include bleeding gums, urinary incontinence, constipation, excessive tiredness, itching, headaches, heartburn, insomnia and pelvic pain.
Long before it was banned, cannabis was an approved remedy for pregnancy-related problems. Hyperemesis Gravidarium (severe vomiting in pregnancy) is a serious pregnancy condition, if left untreated, can be fatal to mother and baby. Cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2) are located along the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, making CBD effective in suppressing nausea and vomiting.
Because CBD is an all-natural product, it is a safer option than pharmaceuticals that can have adverse effects. CBD has unique healing properties and shows that it is antispasmodic, anti-inflammatory, analgesic and cell regenerating.
CBD can help suppress pelvic pain and headaches; it can be taken as a relaxant for a good night’s sleep and can decrease urinary urgency.
