As women, our bodies go through various different reproductive life cycles, menopause being one of them. While we believe it’s important to embrace and talk more openly about this life stage to help eliminate the stigma around it, we also know that the symptoms that come along with menopause wreak havoc on our bodies. From hot flashes, drenching night sweats, sleep disturbances to decreased sexual drive, and painful sexual intercourse, it’s essential to have products in your corner to help fight discomfort and offer up powerful relief.
Fortunately, many of the symptoms that women with menopause are seeking to alleviate have been studied with CBD and cannabis, and the research shows that they both have an impact on neurotransmitters within our body—including our skin, reproductive organs, and central nervous system—with the help of our endocannabinoid system. This means that CBD and cannabis are known for helping women experiencing chronic stress, sleep, discomfort, fatigue, nausea, and sexual function.
CBD Routines for Menopausal Health
Here, our Dosage Specialists have crafted routine recommendations along with best practices to help make this life stage more bearable.
Get the Menopausal Health Routine
Start with one 10mg Regular Strength Softgel after breakfast with a healthy fat, then take another after dinner also with a healthy fat. Increase to our 25mg Extra Strength Softgel after several weeks on 10mg for more support if needed. We always recommend discussing with a Dosage Specialist first to make sure extra strength products are right for you.
Start with our 300mg Regular Strength Daily Drops, take ¼ dropper (2.5mg/0.25mL) to ½ dropper (5mg/0.50mL) Regular Strength Drops spaced out throughout the day as needed.
For more support, increase to ¼ dropper (12.5mg/0.25mL) to ½ dropper (25mg/0.50mL) of our Extra Strength Drops for more support if needed (discuss with a Dosage Specialist first).
Take a ½ dropper (5mg/0.50mL) of Regular Strength Drops as needed for night sweats.
Research suggests small, spaced doses work better than larger, single doses, so a combination of Daily Softgels and Daily Drops or a routine of just one or the other product spaced throughout the day is recommended.
Apply to soles of feet at bedtime for hot flashes, on stiff or achy joints and other bodily aches and discomfort as needed. Relief Cream doesn’t enter the bloodstream the same way CBD does when it is ingested, which means you can apply Relief Cream as needed.
Daily Treatment Oil
Apply to your face and body on dry, coarse, or uneven skin. You can also add a pump of Daily Treatment Oil to your favorite moisturizer of choice to give your skin an extra boost of hydration.
Mindful Mineral Soak
Indulge in a restoring mineral salt bath to relax and destress, and help reduce inflammation. Combining CBD with aromatherapy and heat can do wonders for discomfort, inducing sleep, quieting our mind, and lifting our mood. Draw a hot bath and pour 1 scoop of the Mindful Mineral Soak into the bath. Soak in the bath for at least half an hour.
5 Pro Tips for Additional Relief
- Journal your symptoms and reactions to products to notice trends over time.
- Small, spaced doses are more effective than large, single doses. Either take small doses of Daily Drops (¼ droppers to ½ droppers) spaced throughout the day or take one Daily Softgel after breakfast and after dinner with a healthy fat for a slow, steady release throughout the day and night.
- Keep a bottle of Daily Drops on your nightstand for night sweats.
- Keep a bottle of Daily Drops with you in your purse or in your car’s glove department so you’re ready to calm hot flashes whenever or wherever they occur.
- Try using our Roller Duo on wrists, inner elbows, temples, and neck to uplift your mood and cool day-time hot flashes.
