Menopause + CBD

If you're going through the menopause, you will understand when we say its not an easy time for women, the changes going on inside the body can be disruptive both physically and mentally. As two female co-founder's who are starting to experience this themselves we have turned to own products to relieve some symptoms and we want to share how it may help others who may be looking for more natural remedies.

Before we start for those of you who don't know much about CBD lets share some info........

Is CBD legal? And is it addictive?

CBD is legal in its pure form in the UK. It is not psychoactive so doesn’t make you feel ‘high’ and is not addictive

All MOi + ME products have been tested independently by a third party lab to ensure you can trust our quality of pure CBD.

What does CBD do?

The human body has an active endocannabinoid system (ECS) with receptors. Its main receptors, CB1 and CB2, run throughout our bodies and studies have shown that they are instrumental to the body running smoothly. CB1 receptors are found particularly in the brain and co-ordinate emotions, mood, thinking and memories. CB2 receptors are common in the immune system and affect inflammation and pain.

Our body produces cannabinoids naturally for this system but sometimes doesn’t produce enough and CBD has been shown to be helpful in balancing this. CBD can provide the body with additional cannabinoids to assist the ECS with maintaining the body’s harmony.

Ways to take CBD

How the body absorbs CBD will vary depending on the product you take. Using CBD oil either with a tincture or mist sprays directly under the tongue mean that the CBD will be absorbed directly into the bloodstream. Capsules and gummies mean that CBD is absorbed through the stomach, and topical creams and lotions are absorbed through the skin directly where they have been applied.

MOi + ME offers a Mist Spray and various topicals.

CBD + Menopause

We know that CBD can help people with a wide array of physical and psychological problems and menopause is one area that it could help. 

The NHS list the following as common menopausal symptoms and say the duration and severity of these symptoms varies person by person.  We have grouped together the symptoms and are giving some pointers on which of our products maybe be helpful in supporting you.

  • Hot Flushes
  • Night Sweats
  • Difficulty Sleeping
  • Headaches
For these four we would recommend our Temple Moment. It is beautiful, scented oil which combines lavender oil which can also help ease anxiety, promote relaxation, and calm the mind. Several scientific studies have explored the use of linalool, the main component in lavender, for anxiety relief and sleep. Evening primrose oil which offer relief from a number of menopausal symptoms, such as hot flashes, night sweats, difficulty sleeping, disturbance in mood and tension headaches. Its then infused 500mg CBD Oil.

This is probably the hardest thing to have to deal with during menopause but our Moment Mist may could be really helpful.  Specially curated with 500mg pure isolate CBD, the mist spray is blended with a powerful peppermint scent and flavour.

Peppermint is believed to have calming effects, so using peppermint infused with CBD Oil may help those moments of anxiety and help to bring back balance and calm.

We suggest trying our soothing Moment Balm. It is a self-heating twist balm that is blended with Rosemary which is a rich source of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compound, Lavender that new research is suggesting that one fragrant compound present in lavender can lessen anxiety by stimulating the nose to pass signals to the brain and Thyme which has antifungal, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties & infused with 300mg CBD oil.

  • Reduced sex drive (libido)
  • Skin changes, the skin can become dry 
We were shocked when we read this too but...... There are many cannabinoid receptors in your reproductive organs and sexual tissues. Some research suggests that CBD can enhance your nightlife by reducing anxiety that can be distracting and inflammation that can cause discomfort, allowing you to focus on pleasure. When applied topically, CBD also can help relax blood vessels to increase blood flow to your sexy bits to enhance arousal, sensitivity and lubrication.

 

The CBD Candle is blended with aromatherapy oils and CBD oil so you have the true aroma of sandalwood and jasmine in bringing that relaxing spa smell to your home. 

Once melted, the oil can be used directly on the skin to soothe and moisturise. The CBD oil is infused with Lavender, Evening Primrose, Jasmine & Sandalwood (all of which have known healing properties) 

The Heat from the oil directly on the skin is believed to promote wellness and balance, along with stress relief and healthy skin. Applying warm oil to the body and massaging in can improve relaxation, blood flow, and general health.

Also for changes to your skin we would suggest our CBD Bath Melt.  Our CBD Bath bomb gives you extra benefits as it is infused with 100mg CBD oil, evening primrose oil which helps PMS, symptoms of menopause, arthritis and swelling, Shea & cocoa butter giving total moisture to the skin, alongside the lavender which is known to gently moisturise skin and is naturally antibacterial, meaning that it kills acne-causing bacteria that might infiltrate your pores.

The menopause as we said at the start is challenging for many women and Laura our co-founder says 'after years of suffering with endometriosis the menopause feels daunting, i have lived in pain for many year already and now being hit with night sweats + low mood isn't fun! My go to products are the Temple Moment and Moment Mist, they really help me.  what i found an important so far is 1) talking, chat to friends they are may be experiencing the same so you don't feel so alone 2) find products that work for you 3) don't forget that self-care is self-love and its more important at this time of live than ever before.

Catherine (other Co-founder) never leaves home without the Temple Moment as she says its helps her with tension headaches and absolute favorite for some self-love time is the massage candle.

Our customers have also shared some thoughts on how its helped them.....

 

Gemma is in the early stages if menopause she said...........

"Started using these products November last year when my anxiety hit an all-time high. I was signed off work, not sleeping, struggling to leave the house and feeling like an emotional wreck.
Temple moment was an instant game changer. Applying before going to bed I definitely felt like I had a deeper sleep and woke up less throughout the night.
It took me longer with Moment Mist. I wasn't over keen on the taste and at first had little patience to persevere. However, after messaging Laura, I did continue and definitely feel like it helps my days just generally feel more balanced and calm.
Thanks so much for all your support xxx"
Jo reached out to us as she was struggling, we suggested Temple Moment & Moment Mist she said after using........
"They are great and I do think they've helped me in the moment I need it xx"
