HOW WOMEN ARE USING CBD FOR THEIR TRANSITION INTO - AND THROUGH - MENOPAUSE
It’s no wonder so many of us do not feel ready for menopause. The medical system is not equipped to support us, and, generally, discussion of the topic all feels a bit taboo.
But there’s a new wave of women who are turning to holistic support and taking CBD for menopause to assist them through this important transition.

Can you imagine trying to sleep or just going about your busy daily life and suddenly it feels like it’s 3,000 degrees? This is a reality for many women going through menopause. And often, they just have to power through.
Caused by altered neurochemistry within the hypothalamus (where your body’s thermostat is stored), during menopause, blood vessels dilate and your sweat response gets easily triggered.
While the connection between CBD and hot flashes has not yet been backed up by scientific study, preliminary research shows CBD’s promise for balancing mood chemical messengers and serotonin, which may help reduce hot flashes.
Sleep can be a bit of sweet relief – but that’s not so for many menopausal women. Since menopause can exacerbate the common culprits of sleep disturbance (anxiety, depression, night sweats, etc), many women become sleep-deprived and their mental, physical and emotional health suffers.
This is not okay! While there is still much to learn about CBD’s relationship with sleep, luckily, the anecdotal evidence is promising. Due to CBD’s effect on endocannabinoid signaling, which may influence neurochemistry and alleviate anxiety, many women have reported a sedative effect or symptom-relief when taking CBD before bed.
There’s a reason your mood swings like it’s going out of style while going through menopause. Estrogen and progesterone affect serotonin and other mood chemical messengers in the brain – and therefore directly impact mood. So while your hormones are in flux your mood will be too.
Thankfully, there’s a lot of support in this area. And if you’re interested in natural treatments, studies support anxiety alleviation potential in taking CBD for mood swings and depression caused by menopause. By activating serotonin receptors and stabilizing mood chemical messengers, CBD may be a real relief for women looking for a holistic alternative.
As if the hot flashes, poor sleep, and mood swings weren’t enough – menopausal women experience whole-body inflammation as a reaction to a drop in estrogen. This can cause muscle ache, joint pain, and arthritis symptoms to increase.
Hormone stress and fluctuation can also cause breast tenderness which may be addressed with CBD and its encouraging pain-relieving properties.
