Menopause: how to relieve hot flashes?
Menopause is a period in a woman's life characterized by the cessation of menstrual cycles. This natural phenomenon occurs at different ages depending on women, most often around 50 years old.
During menopause, estrogen levels gradually decrease. Estrogens are hormones that contribute to ovulation and ensure the smooth running of a woman's menstrual cycle. Their reduction can be manifested by several symptoms, including hot flashes.
At the start of menopause, three out of four women report suffering from hot flashes. On average, they disappear after four to five years.
Hot flashes, the first symptom of menopause
A hot flash is a sudden, intense feeling of heat. The hot flash is felt from the chest to the face, and often leaves a redness or several rednesses on the skin. It may be accompanied by chills, dizziness, tremors, palpitations, profuse sweating and a feeling of discomfort.
Hot flashes are often associated with the arrival of menopause, however, they can also be caused by other factors such as stress , the consumption of exciting products (alcohol, caffeine, energy drinks) or even the intake of certain drugs.
Although hot flashes usually last only a few minutes, they can occur several times an hour, during the day or night, and cause problems sleeping. Hot flashes should not be confused with night sweats which are also one of the main symptoms of menopause.
When these hot flashes are recurrent and intense, they can harm the quality of life of menopausal women.

Unlike THC, the most famous cannabinoid, CBD is not dangerous for your health because it does not cause psychotropic or addictive effects. It is consumed by 10% of the French population to naturally relieve everyday ailments such as anxiety, stress, sleep disorders and even pain.
