CBD and the Menopause

When we get to our 50s we all know what’s coming…
The Menopause.

Spread the word

We have all heard our friends complain of hot flushes, mood change, difficulty sleeping, feelings of loss of self-esteem – great, just when you think you’ve got life licked, it drips all over you!

Women are now starting to use CBD oil, especially those who can’t take HRT.  The menopause disrupts the endocannabinoid system, and these receptors are throughout the female reproductive system, therefore it seems fair to say that CBD oil could reduce some of the symptoms relating to the menopause.

However, and it is a big however, there is no hard and fast evidence to support this, only anecdotal.  Although one study by The Rutgers University in New Jersey looked at oestrogen-deficient mice.  They found that when they were fed CBD to the mice, there was a marked improvement in bone density and had less inflammation in their gut and bone tissues.

The other problem with hitting the menopause is that muscles that didn’t ache, now do!  One small movement can have you in agony especially around the hip area.   By putting ice on the area will help bring down inflammation as well as applying CBD topical products like  TAYLOR’S Deep Relief Cream can really help.  Massage the area on a consistent basis and keep the area moving with some gentle exercises.  You should be firing on all cylinders in no time.

We know that CBD oils help mood and can help with sleeping, the topical products can help aches and pains,  so although all the symptoms of the menopause may not be included, it can go a little way into making living with the menopause more bearable.
