Flow Formula, a botanical blend containing CBD, was as effective as ibuprofen in relieving menstrual pain symptoms, according to results of a randomized trial. Researchers assigned 71 women to receive the cannabidiol botanical blend, ibuprofen or placebo for the first 4 days of three menstrual cycles. Results showed that women who received the cannabidiol botanical blend reported similar reductions in pain scores compared with those who received ibuprofen. On day 1, the cannabidiol botanical blend was significantly more effective than ibuprofen and placebo in reducing nausea, according to the researchers. By day 3, the cannabidiol botanical blend was significantly more effective in reducing cramping, irritability, and moodiness than the other two treatments.
