One of the most difficult times in a woman’s life is going through menopause. Perimenopause can last for years before menopause fully sets in. Throughout these years, women experience irregular periods, mood changes, and changes in their body such as weight gain. Hormone replacement therapy can help with symptoms, but they can sometimes be harmful and have side effects. Medical cannabis is a more natural solution to managing the changes.
Cannabis can help improve and regulate your mood. Mood swings are a big problem for women who are going through menopause. The changes in your hormones can make your mood fluctuate wildly throughout the day and night. Using cannabis can help regulate your mood even while the hormones are making it difficult.
There are a lot of other symptoms of menopause, such as hot flashes, night sweats, sexual disorders, and insomnia. Medical cannabis has been used to relieve these symptoms. The belief is that the hormones estrogen and progesterone, which fluctuate and decrease in menopause, are connected to the endocannabinoid system. Medical cannabis will help regulate the endocannabinoid system, relieving symptoms even though the hormones are out of balance.
