Introducing CBD for UTI Symptoms
If you've stumbled upon this page, odds are you're familiar with what a joy a UTI can be and how your day can go from Yay! to Grey within literal seconds from the sudden onset of stupid, fun-sucking, and uncomfortable UTI symptoms. For those who don't, however, AKA the lucky ones, a urinary tract infection occurs when bacteria enter the urinary system, including the kidneys, bladder, ureters, and urethra. Bacteria is the main culprit in causing bladder and urinary tract inflammation. Though men can get UTIs as well, as luck would have it, we women are the ones who have to bear this burden most, 30% more likely, to be exact. That doesn't seem fair, huh? Nonetheless, our anatomy has the final say: a woman's urinary tract is more accessible for bacteria such as E. coli to penetrate — I suppose that's just how life goes…right?
If you answered yes above, perhaps it's time we introduce you to a friend of ours called CBD.
HOW TO HANDLE UTI SYMPTOMS LIKE A WOMAN
When hit with the sudden pain of UTI symptoms, the typical way many tend to treat UTI symptoms is with antibiotics and drinking water to the point you're drowning yourself in the hope of trying to flush out any bacteria lurking inside your bladder. Others turn towards holistic approaches, such as drinking cranberry juice or downing shots of apple cider vinegar (trying not to gag). However, CBD could be another effective way to treat UTI symptoms naturally if the ACV didn’t do the trick. This holistic aid is an active ingredient found in the hemp plant. Though no “trippy” psychoactive effects stem from CBD, this natural treatment has wide-ranging activity in reducing the damaging effects of free radicals.
CBD, YOUR YONI’S NEW BFF
Cannabidiol (CBD) can have beneficial and soothing properties, which may help alleviate UTI symptoms by reducing swelling, squashing pain, and assisting in cleaning up the germs that have invaded our yonis. When the urinary tract is infected, the body's defense mechanisms kick in and begin trying to fight off unwanted bacteria. Cannabidiol is the perfect bacteria-fighting partner since CBD doesn't promote bacterial resistance, which tends to be an alarming problem in antibiotic treatments.
When we first get hit with a UTI, the body triggers an immune response to eliminate bacteria. This reaction causes that nasty pain that we all love so much, NOT! However, did you know that this excessive inflammatory reaction can damage our health? Umm, yup, you read that right. Thankfully, we've discovered CBD and how its holistic benefits can help eliminate symptoms and the torment triggered by UTI symptoms.
LET YOUR UTI SYMPTOMS CHILL THE F* OUT WITH CBD
CBD could be the superior choice when treating a UTI naturally because it enhances our "bliss molecule" called Anandamide. Like the word Yoni, Anandamide is another Sanskrit word that means, you guessed it, 'bliss' or 'divine happiness.' This love molecule, responsible for making us act like giddy fools, is essential to our body's biological functions and the endocannabinoid system. The ECS is responsible for maintaining our body's natural processes and carrying out a state of homeostasis.
Homeostasis can be defined as "the maintenance of a balanced internal environment by an organism.” Anandamide influences homeostasis by binding to receptors called CB1 and CB2 receptors. A 2014 study showed that bladder health could be affected by the CB1 receptors within the yoni. When interaction occurs between the two, CBD can enhance our body's anandamide, potentially reducing UTI symptoms by strengthening the muscles in the walls of our bladder. Essentially, it’s like CBD is supercharging our body's natural ability to CHILL THE F* OUT!
Many studies are currently being conducted to prove this theory further. A more recent report from 2018 by Zun-Yi Wang and Dale Bjorling shows how CBD enhances our body's anandamide that binds to CB1 receptors, which can help keep the pain down under in check. Further data concluded that cannabinoids could reduce symptoms when activating the CB2 receptors and the frequency of toilet visits. Hurray! No more excessive bathroom breaks!
