Cbd menopause

Around 30 years ago, scientists discovered we have another body system called an Endocannabinoid system (ECS). It has been described as one of the most “important physiologic systems involved in establishing and maintaining human health” – yet doctors are barely trained on it.
Our ECS plays an important part in all biological functions: everything from sleep, appetite, memory, mood, immune system, pain control and reproduction. It is like an orchestra for our body, it keeps everything working together in balance. If one system goes out of balance, like for example, how our hormonal system goes out of balance during the menopause, everything else is affected.
We produce our own cannabinoids which help regulate our ECS (called endocannabinoids) but plants produce cannabinoids too.
When our bodies are under pressure, like how it is during the menopause, we can use plant cannabinoids to support us through this time.

What do we need to know about CBD?

What’s happening: Plummeting levels of oestrogen and other hormones affect the levels of serotonin and other neurotransmitters in our brains – all affecting our mood.
How CBD can help: CBD increases the levels of serotonin by activating our serotonin receptors. And as above, it also helps the too early breakdown of anandamide. The combination of both increasing anandamide and serotonin is what is thought to provide the anti-anxiety and antidepressant effects of CBD.
