Studies have suggested cannabinoid compounds such as CBD can be useful in the treatment of uterine fibroids as well as a range of other hormone disorders simply by stimulating the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). When endocannabinoids and steroid hormones are used together it makes it possible for the ECS to restrain cellular accumulation and growth inside of tumors.
