During menopause, women experience higher levels of inflammation that could result in arthritis and joint and muscle pain. CBD is a powerful anti-inflammatory and works for long-term relief as a sublingual (CHILL) and immediate relief as a topical such as MACK or BLAZE.
Anxiety and depression are not uncommon as estrogen and progesterone levels start to decrease, directly affecting mood-controlling neurotransmitters in the brain. CBD has shown to have positive effects on serotonin levels and helping alleviate anxiety and depression. Recommended: CHILL
Hot Flashes/Night Sweats
The body's cooling system becomes disrupted and can affect sleep and the quality of life. CBD may be able to help in the same way that antidepressants can help relieve hot flashes with its influence on the levels of serotonin in the brain. Recommended: CHILL
Hormones help control our metabolism. Lower levels of estrogen means less calories are burned -- even during exercise. This change means greater fat storage and predisposition to insulin resistance, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. CBD can help maintain a healthy metabolism by switching on the genes that control it. Recommended: CHILL and NO TRIFILIN' Truffles.
Vaginal Dryness/Libido/Bladder Control
With lower estrogen levels, many peri- and post-menopausal women experience dryness, lowered libido, incontinence and in some cases UTI. A CBD lubricant like MACKis recommended to encourage blood flow to the vaginal tissues and take CHILL to help uplift the mood.
