Hot flashes in a woman of mature age, symptoms of menopause

Treatment of Menopause with Medical Cannabis

When a woman stops making hormones like estrogen, and testosterone, her menstrual cycle comes to an end, and she goes into menopause. If you are a woman, your menstrual cycle stops for a year, which means you are in full menopause, says MedlinePlus, a journal of the US Library of Medicine. Every woman’s menopause starts at a different time, but it usually starts after you are 45 years old.

Changes in mood, excessive sweating, hot flashes, sleeping problems, vaginal dryness, and irregular menstrual cycles are some of the symptoms of menopause, which can be unpleasant. It doesn’t matter that there are so many other ways to deal with the symptoms. Medical cannabis can relieve many of them. Medical News Today talks about why in great detail.

One theory is that a bad endocannabinoid system can cause a lot of different health problems, the news source says. “Menopause seems to mess with the cannabinoid receptors, and that there are cannabidiol receptors all over the female reproductive organs, so it’s feasible that CBD oil could help ease some of the symptoms of menopause.”

Symptoms, Causes, and Treatments of Menopause

Women usually have estrogen and progesterone in their bodies for most of their lives, but when they stop making them, their bodies go through a lot of changes. One of the most common signs of menopause is cramps, which are a sudden surge of warmth and anxiety that makes you sweat a lot and make you shiver. The North American Menopause Society talks about menopause symptoms in great detail, noting that in addition to hot flashes, bladder problems, mood changes, sleeping problems, and sexual discomfort, can all happen during menopause. These symptoms can last for years.

Because there are so many different symptoms, the treatment for each one changes. Hormone treatment, reduced antidepressants, Clonidine, Gabapentin, vaginal estrogen, as well as other medicines to prevent osteoporosis are on a typical list of treatments from the Mayo Clinic, which includes these and other medicines. There are many ways to avoid symptoms of menopause. You can avoid drinking alcohol, quit smoking, exercise regularly, and keep a healthy weight.

A Menopause Patient’s Guide to Cannabinoids

YouAreUNLTD, a well-known source of news about senior living, tells the story of Tracy Edwards, 51, who used medical marijuana when she was going through menopause. Following the failure of hormone therapy, she had become a patient of Dr. Shelley Turner, who says that most women seeking medical cannabis fall into three groups: I can’t sleep, I have pain, and my mood isn’t great, and “two or three of these symptoms may be affecting their quality of life.”

Products with CBD in them, like “CBD-infused bath salts, personal lubricants, vaginal suppositories, and tinctures” are being sold to people who are going through menopause.

Inflammation is one of the symptoms of menopause, according to Healthline, which cites a University at Albany study that found that women who used medical cannabis had less joint and muscle pain, sleep problems, and depression.

This could be because of the way CBD and THC affect the body, says Healthline

As more time, experiments, and personal experiences come to light, medical cannabis is likely to keep easing the symptoms of menopause for many women.
