Every woman experiences menopause, in their midlife. Menopause typically starts around age 50 but many women experience early menopause, due to environmental and physiological factors. This is a very individual time in a woman’s life and many women go through enormous emotional and physical changes which can change them forever. These include mood swings, hot flushes, changes in weight, metabolism, energy levels and physical body features. The hormonal changes can induce depression, so each woman needs to get help in her own way.
With menopause comes changes in oestrogen production and endocannabinoid production. When oestrogen levels go down, so do levels of the fatty acid amide hydrolase (FAAH) which is how the body modulates anandamide levels. This is one of the bliss molecules that keeps women sane. Anandamide is responsible for pain, appetite and fertility and menopause changes this.
How Can Cannabis Oil Benefit Menopause?
While there is no one cure for menopause, there are things a woman can do to relieve symptoms and experience a better quality of life. Cannabis oil is a natural choice of therapy which can also reduce the dangers of breast cancer. CBD interacts with cannabinoid receptors in the body to reduce the impact of menopause and its symptoms. At least, taking CBD is calming and reduces stress, anxiety and depression. It also helps to manage appetite, insomnia and inflammation.
