High levels of cortisol can impact other hormone levels including thyroid-stimulating hormones and sex hormones.

Helping to balance out mood changes, reduce sleep disturbances and lower the rate of bone density loss that can happen during menopause. Understanding that our bodies have an endocannabinoid system that is meant to process cannabinoids. They are a group of cell receptors, called cannabinoid receptors, found in the brain, organs, and tissues throughout our bodies. This system plays a crucial role in menopause. There are cannabinoid receptors throughout the female reproductive system too, with menopause disrupting the endocannabinoid system. This can explain some of the effects of premenopause such as anxiety, depression, mood swings, and lower libido. (for more information on the ECS system see: https://www.lokahileaf.shop/about-3
