Did you know that CBD can help treat the symptoms of endometriosis?
Endometriosis is a condition that targets the female productive system. It involves the tissue that normally lines the uterus. In endometriosis sufferers, that lining starts to grow outside of the uterus, usually on the ovaries, fallopian tubes or intestines.
This triggers inflammation and can cause severe pain in the lower abdomen, lower back and pelvis, as well as during sexual intercourse or menstruation.
THC and CBD can stimulate receptors within the endocannabinoid system of the body that can mitigate the intensity of this inflammatory response.
An endocannabinoid called anandamide- known as the “bliss molecule”- also helps by regulating and reducing your body’s sensitivity to pain.
When anandamide binds to a receptor, it communicates with cells to stop sending out so many pain signals, which essentially helps to numb the discomfort.
Research indicates that cannabinoids found in cannabis oil could alleviate symptoms such as:

What makes our pure FECO CBD oil different? Why are our oils superior to other CBD oils and CBD products on the market? Simply put – our products only contain Full Extract Cannabis Oil, ensuring they contain all the goodness Mother Nature intended. Nothing added, nothing taken away.
Let’s start with the cannabis oil that is used in all of our products. Our supplier uses only Full Extract Cannabis Oil (pure FECO CBD oil) in all of our products. Fancy name, right? What does it really mean though? When our products are made, the CBD is not extracted from the plant using harsh chemical processes that damages the healing compounds found naturally in the plant.
You may have recently heard about MCTs. But what are MCTs and why are MCTs being compared to coconut oil in the media? This blogpost will provide some clarity around the MCT vs Coconut Oil debate.
Our Green Cat Health Full Extract Cannabis Oil (FECO) contains organic coconut oil to enhance absorption by the body. Full extract cannabis oil and organic coconut oil is an excellent combination to use, with the only drawback being the product may solidify under colder conditions. This is not a huge drawback, as placing the bottle of cannabis oil in a bit of warm water will turn the product back to liquid again.
To stop the solidification problem, our Green Cat Full Extract Cannabis Oil is now mixed with MCT instead of organic coconut oil. So what exactly is MCT, and does this differ from organic coconut oil?
What are MCTs?
Let’s start with: what exactly are MCTs? MCT stands for Medium Chain Triglycerides, which are three fatty acid groups with a glycerol backbone.
CBD oil helps combat migraines by regulating a group of nerves and blood vessels in the brain, called the Trigeminal Vascular System (TGVS). The Trigeminal Nerve is believed to play a central role in migraines and cluster headaches by causing the vascular system in the brain to spasm out of control. CBD acts on an area of the TVGS to reduce its activity and alleviate painful symptoms.
CBD oil may also reduce the frequency, duration and severity of migraine attacks.
CBD has both anti- inflammatory and analgesic properties. The chemical compounds actively work against inflammation, whilst its analgesic compounds stop the brain from receiving pain signals from the nervous system.
Patients who have tension headaches have reported the following benefits when using CBD:
Reduction of accompanying symptoms
Ease of muscle tension
It is not only about the pain
Another aspect of migraine is the high level of anxiety that often precedes or accompanies a migraine attack. CBD is well known for its calming and relaxing effect. It can also promote restful sleep. This affords the body some valuable time to recuperate.
By using CBD you are employing a multi-level strategy to address both the origins and symptoms of migraines and tension headaches.

We at groen! are very proud owners of two beautiful and very busy doggie children. Our eldest is a little skittish and is specially nervous when the wind picks up…which is quite often in the Klein-Karoo.
When things get tough, Green Cat Organic CBD Oil for Pets really helps her calm down. She is then much more able to cope with loud noises and even manages to go outside (which she simply refuses to do when the wind does pick up).
Ticks and fleas are also very common in our area. Even after just a few drops of rain we have to keep an eye out. Obviously we do not want our dogs to get bitten and risk illness, but they also tend to share our bed and other furniture, and spend a great deal in other carpeted parts of the house.
Thank you so much to each and every person for liking and sharing our Facebook competition! It breaks our hearts that only one person can win, but keep watching our Facebook page for more competitions, great discounts and unbelievable promotions!
