CBD for Women: Are CBD Products for Women Effective?

Today, as people seek healthier and more natural remedies to their health concerns, we're hearing more and more about CBD. CBD is a chemical that is derived from the hemp plant and has many healing properties. Although hemp contains tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive compound that produces the euphoric high of marijuana, it is often times not present in CBD products.  

Women face unique stressors and health issues, making CBD a massive benefit to them. Here, we'll discuss the many benefits of CBD for women and some specific areas it can address.

CBD Created By A Woman, For Women

The female founder of Go Botanicals created this premium CBD company based on her passion to help other women. Ayla Rahmberg began experimenting with CBD isolate products for daily mom stress and trouble sleeping.

What transpired from there was a passion product that kept growing. Once Ayla found the pure ingredients she loved, she worked with a top-tier manufacturer to develop products for her Go Botanicals line.

Ayla loves being able to provide others with the high quality, lab tested CBD products that are effective for pain, stress, anxiety, migraines, arthritis and inflammation.

When Go Botanicals says they know what women want, they mean it. Their primary focus group is made up of all women.

What is CBD?

CBD (cannabidiol) is one of the most prevalent active ingredients in cannabis. It is derived from the hemp plant (a cousin of marijuana) and is non-addictive. The most noted compound in hemp is Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which gives the euphoric 'high.' But it is usually removed from CBD products, with only trace amounts remaining. 

CBD acts in conjunction with your endocannabinoid system (ECS). Your ECS has CBD receptors, and when activated, they significantly impact your central nervous system, immune system, and other vital systems. 

CBD is found to be safe to use and well-tolerated. There may be minor side effects like drowsiness, rash, diarrhea, weakness, or decreased appetite. But when taking lower doses, the incidents of side effects are lessened.  

CBD is available in various strengths and forms. You can purchase it in capsules, edibles, oils, or topicals.  

What Are the Benefits of CBD?

Reputable research has shown that CBD has many benefits for the human body. In particular, CBD is effective as a treatment for childhood epilepsy syndromes - especially those that don't respond well to other antiseizure medications. CBD could reduce and, in some cases, completely stop epileptic seizures.  

Animal studies also show that CBD is effective in the treatment of these additional conditions: 

  • Anxiety
  • Addiction
  • Inflammation
  • Chronic Pain

Why Are Women Taking CBD Products?

Go Botanicals was founded and is run by a woman, so this topic is personal. CBD can bring so much relief for women, and we continue to research safe and effective products for women. When it comes to women and CBD, here are a few areas you may find it helpful. 

For Hormonal Balance

Hormonal imbalances are a huge issue for women at various times of life. CBD can help balance hormones by regulating secretions of cortisol (the stress hormone). Too much cortisol can trigger issues with other hormones, like your sex hormones and thyroid-stimulating hormones. So, the regulation of cortisol has a positive effect on your entire hormonal balance. 

Balance Blend Full Spectrum Gummies are popular with women for a lot of reasons. For some, they have the perfect combination of CBD and a trace of THC to provide noticeable results without a high feeling. They come in a 60-count bottle, which is perfect for those that use the popular dosage of one gummy during the day and one in the evening. It’s easy to add these to Subscribe & Save and get them delivered to your door every month. The delicious berry flavor makes the experience enjoyable and masks the hemp taste.

Menopauseis dreaded by many women, but it doesn't have to be a hardship. Issues like reduced sleep, mood changes, depression, anxiety, and lower bone density can make this time in your life difficult. But CBD and your ECS can significantly reduce some of these issues by bringing balance.   

Pain Relief

Unfortunately, there are many circumstances where women face physical pain. Migraines, PMS, period pains, fibromyalgia, arthritis, and many other conditions characterized by chronic pain can be experienced in a woman’s lifetime. Many women are turning to CBD for these issues and experiencing real relief. CBD interacts with your ECS to minimize inflammation and communicate with neurotransmitters.  

A popular combination for pain relief is the Premium CBD Roll-On and Extra Strength Gummies. With CBD’s natural anti-inflammatory properties, this combination may be able to help heal from the inside out - literally. The topical roll-on is a mess-free was to apply relief exactly where you need it. The gummies may help you avoid pain before it starts, all day long.


While most of us are familiar with CBD for pain relief, CBD as skincare is a newer revelation. CBD may reduce the appearance of dark spots, strengthen hair follicles, and improve your skin's overall health and look. CBD may also regulate oil production in your skin, thereby preventing acne and reducing inflammation. Further, women are experimenting with it to treat eczema, psoriasis, and skin rashes. 

Gut Health

Digestive issues like IBS are common among women. CBD may help with the problems associated with digestive issues like bloating, cramps, and nausea by facilitating regular bowel movements and your overall digestive processes. 

Anxiety and Depression

Women who suffer from anxiety and depression can benefit from taking CBD. It can reduce stress and anxiety by affecting the CBD receptors in your ECS. Activating these receptors in your ECS boosts your dopamine levels which causes your mind and body to release stress and relax. 



Although there are many benefits to taking CBD, there are also conditions where it might not be indicated or should be taken with caution.

Pregnancy or Breastfeeding

These are times when caution is the rule. While most CBD products are analyzed for purity and the presence of contaminants, trace elements of these ingredients can escape detection. Although they may be acceptable for consumption under normal circumstances, the FDA warns that they can be harmful to your unborn child or infant.   

Liver Disease

High doses of CBD may cause widespread damage to your liver. However, this circumstance is not different from taking too much ibuprofen or Tylenol. Either of these could also cause liver damage. So, as with anything, caution is required, and extreme daily doses are discouraged. The therapeutic range of CBD is generally safe to use.

Eye Disorders

CBD may make things worse if you have an eye disorder that can develop into vision loss or glaucoma. It can increase pressure on your eyes, making glaucoma worse.  

Parkinson Disease

While some research has been conducted, we still await conclusive results. But there is some concern that specific symptoms of Parkinson's, a neurodegenerative disease, may be made worse by taking large doses of CBD. However, smaller amounts may help with tremors, pain, anxiety, insomnia, and dystonia.

Women and CBD

There are many circumstances or conditions where a woman may benefit from CBD. The indications for this compound intersect with many women-specific health issues. CBD may help with chronic pain, period pains, PMS, anxiety, depression, insomnia, and stress. Additionally, it can help women through menopause, as well as beautify the skin. 

Always consult your doctor before changing your health and wellness routine. As more people turn to natural remedies such as CBD, there is still a lot of research being done.
