Menopause is a normal life event that all women experience as they age. Together, menopause and perimenopause (the transition period leading up to it) form a distinct transitional life phase with its own particular health challenges. In medical terms, the word “menopause” refers to the last menstrual period a woman ever has. In popular language though, the term describes any of the changes a woman goes through, either just before or after she stops menstruating, marking the end of her reproductive years. Symptoms include irregular periods, vaginal dryness, hot flushes, chills, night sweats, sleep problems, mood swings, weight gain and slowed metabolism.
Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) is a combination of physical, psychological emotional and mood disturbances that occur after a woman’s ovulation. It normally ends with the onset of menstrual flow but can last for several days after. It is thought that PMS may be caused by hormonal changes (fluctuations in oestrogen and progesterone) that occur during the menstrual cycle. The most common symptoms are irritability, depression, crying, oversensitivity and mood swings (alternating sadness and anger).

THC products are psychoactive, causing one to become “high”. These are to be used with special caution in children, pets and persons prone to anxiety or stress. Depending on the unique situation, it may be appropriate to substitute THC with non-psychoactive THCA. CBN and 1:1 oils may also cause mild psychoactive effects.
However, if products are used correctly, it may be possible to avoid the psychoactive effect entirely. Should you feel uncomfortable or have any questions at any time, our trained team of staff are on standby to attend to your concerns.
