The cannabis plant is still being researched and there is still much to be learned. However the potential in supporting our bodies and minds is so promising and the results we do have are all pointing towards its ability to provide relief – even for menopause.
What was discovered not too long ago was that our body has its own endocannabinoid system, a nerve signalling system throughout the human body that helps maintain physiological, emotional and cognitive stability. This system consists of enzymes that help break down endocannabinoids and cannabinoids, and receptors in the nervous system and around your body that these endocannabinoids and cannabinoids bond with. These receptors regulate many of our body’s function – including appetite, digestion, immune function, inflammation, mood, sleep, temperature regulation, memory, pain, pleasure and reward.
So, when considering the value of CBD, the potential benefits are wide-ranging. Much research is being built in treating chronic diseases with CBD, not so much around menopause, yet.
Symptoms that CBD could help with
However, Mpowder’s consultant medical doctor, Dr. Julie Moltke (who has also worked with us at TheDrug.Store!) – one of the leading experts in the field of Cannabis and CBD – advocates the use of CBD as part of a holistic ‘whole-body approach’. She has seen strong results in the ability of CBD to:
• Stabilise mood
• Reduce stress
• Reduce anxiety
• Improve focus and productivity
• Improve sleep
• Reduce inflammation and pain
• There is also promising research into its potential to maintain bone density
As with any natural supplement, sourcing and dosing is very important. First of all, check with your doctor before introducing anything new to your diet. Make sure the CBD you’re looking into is pure and the vendor has certificates of analysis (COAs) available (we have one for each of the CBD oils we offer).
And if you struggle with any of the above-mentioned issues, then taking CBD, alongside your daily scoop of Mpowder, could be of benefit for you. Give it a little time, play around until you find a good dosage for you and track its impact.
