Millions of people around the world are currently using CBD for treating different health problems. CBD, one of the active cannabinoids of the cannabis plant, has many therapeutic properties that can alleviate a wide range of health problems. That is one of the main reasons why many people believe that CBD could alleviate the symptoms of menopause.
Let’s see how CBD is helpful in treating the symptoms of menopause.
It is very common for women undergoing menopause to experience sleep disturbances. According to several studies conducted in the past few decades, the endocannabinoids in your body have a major role to play in your sleep-wake cycle, which means the CBD can significantly affect your sleep.
There are only limited studies that looked into how CBD helps to improve sleep quality in humans. Most of these studies are providing positive results for the use of CBD for improving the quality and duration of sleep. Therefore, using CBD products during menopause can help with the sleep disturbances you experience during this period.
Studies have proved that the risk of anxiety and depression in women will be high during menopause. The main reasons for this are the changes in the hormonal levels, other menopause symptoms, or both. Recent animal studies have shown that CBD is a potential remedy for different types of anxiety disorders.
Even though more studies on humans are necessary to conclusively prove CBD as a potential anxiety remedy, we have several anecdotal records of CBD users that show that the use of CBD helped them to alleviate anxiety. Taking CBD during menopause might help you in managing the mood changes and also help you to calm your mind.
Loss Of Bone Density
According to many studies over the years, the risk of osteoporosis and many other bone diseases are higher in women who undergo menopause. This is because the bone density will start to deteriorate after menopause. The main problem of low bone density is the increased risk of fractures and as per statistics, more than 20 % of women over the age of 65 suffer from osteoporosis.
You need to seek treatment to increase your bone density. Some recent studies are claiming that CBD could be an effective option for increasing your bone density. Animal studies have shown that CBD could interact with the endocannabinoid system and reduce the rate of bone density loss, which can help increase the strength of bones.
