The Best CBD Oil for Menopause Relief

With most women transitioning into menopause experiencing sleep disorders, mood swings, and hot flashes, among other symptoms, pre-menopause and post-menopause symptoms can be challenging to manage, especially when they appear out of the blue.

While research on the effectiveness of CBD oil for menopause is still limited, we recently wrote a blog post about CBD for menopause with product recommendations and the overwhelming response was that you want more!

With more and more women swearing by CBD products to help menopause symptoms, in this post, we’re going to share the best CBD oil for menopause relief along with our favourite tips.

Is CBD oil beneficial for menopause?

While there isn’t a specific study (yet!) showing the effectiveness of CBD for menopause, based on general studies and the benefits of CBD, it’s believed CBD oil can help menopause symptoms such as:

Improved sleep quality 

During menopause, sleepless nights can become all too common. A 2019 study and another conducted in 2020 discovered that CBD relieved feelings of anxiety, which improved sleep quality and length in participants of the study. With that in mind, it’s easy to conclude that sleepless nights from menopause can also be eased with CBD oil.

Decreased joint pain 

During menopause, estrogen levels decrease, causing inflammation in the joints. This could mean old injuries starting to hurt again, sometimes even leading to arthritis. A recent study on animals revealed that topical application of CBD can relieve joint pain, and anecdotally many users of topical CBD find it helps to ease inflammation and pain.

Improved mood 

It’s typical for women going through menopause to experience a shift in mood due to hormonal changes. This can present as signs of anxiety and depression during the transition to menopause, or just unexplained changes in mood.

Various studies have also found taking CBD oil improves signs of anxiety and depression.

As explained in detail in our CBD for menopause post, it’s also believed CBD oil interacts with the endocannabinoid system, which is understood to help ease menopause symptoms.

Improved bone density

Women experience low bone density during and after menopause. Osteoporosis affects one in every four women aged 65 or older, and if left untreated, women could experience fractures as their bones weaken. 

A study conducted on animals showed that CBD oil improves bone density. While no research has been done on humans, there is evidence that women experiencing bone density loss could benefit from CBD oil. 

Does CBD increase your estrogen levels?

Estrogen is a group of hormones produced within the female reproductive organs. These hormones are responsible for the female characteristics in women. Besides regulating the menstrual cycle, estrogen also affects the brain, urinary tract, bones, breasts, hair, and skin. 

Most estrogen gets produced in the ovaries, although a little bit of it is produced by the fat cells and the adrenal glands. When menopause strikes, ovaries stop producing this hormone. 

Decreased estrogen is linked to various health issues, such as weight gain, bone density loss (osteoporosis), heart problems, digestion issues, and a decline in cognitive capabilities. 

Although a study hasn’t been carried out on humans yet, a study performed on mice showing similar symptoms to menopausal women found that these symptoms improved from being fed CBD.

Is it safe to take CBD oil for menopause relief?

While CBD oil is well tolerated by most people, we always recommend consulting your GP or a pharmacist before taking any CBD products if you are unsure.

We also recommend that you talk to your doctor before you start taking CBD oil for menopause relief if you’re on other prescription medications. Your GP can give you a safe schedule and dosage recommendation even with your other medicines. 

Is taking CBD Oil legal in the UK? 

Yes, taking CBD oil is legal in the UK as long as it meets the law’s requirements. These requirements are:

  • CBD products should contain no more than 0.2% THC.
  • CBD products should be well-labelled and displayed in clear bottles. 

You can use and travel with Prym Health’s CBD oil anywhere in the UK. Our products meet all the legal requirements. In fact, our CBD is THC-free, vegan, natural, and pure for your peace of mind. 

If you’re travelling and unsure if you can take CBD oil with you on your flight or once you have arrived, we’ve got a handy table of guidelines in this post.

The Best CBD Oil for Menopause Relief

With so many CBD oil products in the market promising quality, you can never be too sure! At Prym Health, we don’t gamble with the quality of our CBD products. We offer the best CBD oil for menopause relief in two strengths – 600mg and 1200mg. 

600mg CBD Oil

Our 600mg CBD Oil is the lower-strength dosage, making it ideal for beginners. If you haven’t taken CBD products in the past, or it’s your first time trying CBD oil, we recommend starting with this dose.

With just 3 simple ingredients, our CBD oil drops contain CBD oil, MCT coconut oil and mint flavouring.

Our CBD oil comes with a handy dropper that you can use to drop the oil under your tongue. You should take 2-4 drops of CBD oil once or twice a day, depending on what you need to manage your menopause symptoms.

1200mg CBD Oil

For more seasoned CBD users, or if you’ve found the 600mg dose hasn’t had the desired effect, we also have the 1200mg CBD Oil, infused with natural terpene blends. This CBD oil has a high potency and is only recommended for people who have experience with CBD products.

Similar to the lower dose, our CBD oil comes with a handy dropper, making it easy to take when needed.

Taking CBD Oil for Menopause Relief

Transitioning to menopause is hard enough, but it doesn’t have to remain this way. Even though studies on the use of CBD oil for menopause are limited, our customers have tried and tested the best CBD oil for menopause relief and swear by the positive side effects.

At Prym Health, we believe our premium CBD oils are a game changer, but you can also explore our other products, such as CBD gummiescooling gelspatches, and suppositories, depending on your needs.
