Menopause can have different symptoms and effects as the reproductive system changes. Mayo Clinic lists hot flashes, chills, weight gain, mood changes, and sleep disturbances as a few of the symptoms associated with menopause. Menopause has the potential to be very uncomfortable for many women, as well as have long term consequences such as osteoporosis. There are many ways that doctors have treated menopause over the years, including hormone treatments, anti-depressants, and medications for hot flashes and osteoporosis. As people look for more natural ways to treat their symptoms, some researchers are beginning to look at the possibility of treating many menopause symptoms with CBD oil. This would be a natural alternative to the many other drugs and therapies currently available.

What Is CBD Oil?

CBD oil is derived from hemp plants. It is used in a variety of products including skin care products. It is federally legal and contains less than .3% THC. THC is the component found in marijuana and hemp that produces the psychoactive effect. Using CBD oil cannot cause the “high” associated with marijuana use.

CBD Benefits And Why It Works For Menopause

There are currently very few formal studies on CBD benefits, but it is presumed to have many. Medical News Today points out that the body has an endocannabinoid system that uses cell receptors to regulate many functions in the the body including mood, sleep, reproduction, and temperature control. Menopause can disrupt the endocannabinoid system, causing many of the symptoms of menopause.

Because cannabinoids like CBD interact with the endocannabinoid system, CBD may be able to help the body regulate and relieve many symptoms. An article from Healthline points out while there are very few clinical trials and studies in regards to CBD and menopause, women surveyed reported positive outcomes for symptoms such as pain, sleep disturbance, and mood regulation.

Use A Top Quality CBD Product

Healthline makes another important point that because CBD is not regulated by the FDA, you need to do the due diligence to ensure the quality of the product you are using. Some CBDs have been found containing significant amounts of pesticides and harsh chemicals, or more THC than advertised. Healthline advises using organic CBD to avoid these harmful substances. Hemp of the Rockies always uses organic hemp and other ingredients to ensure safe, top-quality CBD products. We also have our products tested by a third party to confirm that our THC levels are lower .3%.
