CBD for Endocrine Disorders
According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), are more than 175 distinct diseases that affect the endocrine system.
The Endocrine System is the collection of glands in the body that produce hormones responsible for regulating functions such as metabolism, growth, sleep, and mood. The Endocrine System is made up of the pituitary gland, thyroid gland, parathyroid glands, adrenal glands, pancreas, and reproductive organs. Endocrine Disorders are a result from one or more of the glands malfunctioning which can cause symptoms such as fatigue, stomach pains, dehydration, or skin issues.
How CBD Works To Relieve Endocrine Disorders
The Issues with the Endocrine System can be the result of various diseases, genetics, or just plain stress. CBD can help regulate hormone production and encourage better health which results in a healthier Endocrine System; it’s important to keep your body healthy in order to encourage the proper development and maintenance of your Endocrine System. CBD stimulates your endocannabinoid system, which impacts your hormone levels in a positive way. It balances things out. That balance activates different receptors in your brain and in your body specifically impacting all the endocrine glands like the pituitary gland, thyroid and parathyroid glands, pancreas, adrenal glands, and ovaries or testes, all of which produce hormones.
Research studies have used doses from 15mg to as high as 600mg. Typical CBD supplements provide 20mg to 25mg. When taking CBD for inflammation, dosing can vary widely depending on the severity of the symptoms you are experiencing. One goal to consider is to use CBD to supplement or possibly replace pharmaceuticals you might be taking. CBD is an all-natural alternative that does not build up in your system and cannot be overdosed.

It is important to consult with your healthcare provider before starting any supplement program. Most prescribed medications cannot and should not be stopped all at once.
It has been suggested to start with a dose of 10mg to 15mg of CBD twice a day. After a few days, you may want to reduce prescribed meds incrementally while increasing your CBD dosage the following day. Steps of 10mg are suggested to help monitor changes. Monitor your symptoms; be aware of how you feel. Don’t hurry the process. Wait 2 to 3 days between changes. This will allow you to determine the dosing that your body requires to meet your goals, while documenting how your medications interact.
