Women using cannabis for PMS and menopause

Menopause and Cannabis

Using cannabis to help relieve menopause symptoms.

The audio has been removed but please feel very free to ask any questions you might have in the comment section below the article and I’m happy to share more.

Sharing your own experiences is always good too, as it benefits others too when we do that.

Here are two other articles I’ve written on cannabis and menopause:

Perimenopause relief: Cannabis

My Experience and Relationship with Cannabis

Women’s health issues are so under-researched, under-funded, and even ignored and neglected.

Until more research is done into women’s health, women will continue to be ignored, and only when cannabis has been legalized and decriminalized can we begin to do more serious scientific and medical research on it.

Cannabis has really helped me in miraculous ways when it comes to menopause symptoms and it breaks my heart seeing and reading about women who are suffering needlessly.

For anyone who has had even one major hot flash in their life knows exactly what I’m talking about!

It’s something you wouldn’t want anyone to experience, it’s horrible, and imagine LIVING with them, day in and day out, even in your sleep you’re suffering from them.

Not a quality life if you ask me, and I did not accept that as my destiny, and that decision was what lead me to eventually find cannabis.

I would regret it if I held myself back and feel that it’s my obligation as a woman to share what I have discovered with other women, and other people, for that matter.

Cannabis can help with many other things as well, such as Parkinson’s, PTSD, seizures, chronic pain, depression etc etc. It’s a miracle plant if you ask me!

Many people don’t know this, but women used to use it for PMS and menopause related issues before, – It has been used for thousands of years for all kinds of issues and healing, as well as in spiritual/shamanistic/religious rituals, and more.

Common menopause symptoms:

Foggy mind, can’t concentrate/focus, forgetfulness, sleep difficulties/insomnia, hunger/cravings (in the middle of the night and you just have to get up an eat, that’s how powerful the hunger hormones are!), weight gain, hot/cold flashes, night sweats, fatigue, low mood, dry skin, no libido, nauseous, headache, brain fog, no drive, lack of inspiration etc.

Just to mention a few, and this is all hormonal and should NOT be treated with antidepressants and anxiety meds because that’s not what these symptoms are about at all.

It’s all hormonal, and that’s why it’s so important to do more scientific research into this and to raise awareness about it so that women can be properly helped and supported.

Menopausal women are being called crazy, dismissed as being ‘too young’ (when in reality perimenopause can start in the thirties already), some women are even recommended shock therapy, or are told by others to ‘suck it up’, and put on antidepressants – It’s crazy, and it’s wrong and should not be happening.

I had to learn all this by myself, no one told me about how menopause would be like, or even when it starts, and this is true for many women, there’s very little awareness about these things and it shouldn’t be like that.

My perimenopause started when I was around 42 (I’m 49 now and post-menopause), and I tried everything to help myself;

All kinds of vitamins and supplements, I did fasting, and even tried magic mushrooms (both tripping and micro-dosing), and while psilocybin (the psychedelic compound in the mushrooms) helped, as did fasting, it’s not a sustainable (long term) solution (for me).

When I was experimenting with all this I also learned about the endocannabinoid system (ECS) in the body, which is really fascinating.

The ECS regulates everything from body temperature to immunity, digestion and reproduction.

It balances the body and keeps it in homeostasis, but what happens when women reaches their menopause years is that the ECS is running on empty, and cannabis is like a supplement that helps the ECS to run effectively.

Just like for example a vitamin D deficiency can be restored by taking vitamin D pills, an endocannabinoid deficiency can be treated by using cannabis.

We’re still learning about how cannabis works in the human body, and the endocannabinoid system was ‘discovered’ in the 90’s, so it’s still quite a ‘new’ thing that obviously needs more research and this is a challenge as cannabis is still illegal in many places.

In the past, cannabis was commonly found in pharmacies and used as a medicine, but then everything changed (Google “Marihuana Tax Act of 1937” to learn more) and much of this knowledge that I’m sharing here disappeared from the public eye, that’s why people don’t have the awareness about any of this; because it has been kept away from us, but now it’s time to take back our power and our health too.

Now things are changing and it’s up to us to reclaim our health, and by harnessing the power of cannabis as a supplement to the ECS you can keep it healthy and bring harmony, balance and wellness back into your body.

I highly recommend cannabis (for many reasons), so if you feel guided to try it, then do it, follow what your intuition is telling you and see what happens.

For me it was an instant relief from hot flashes and night sweats, that’s why I want other women to know this too, that there is help available, and maybe it will help you too.

Is there a cannabis podcast that would be interested in hearing my story and experience?

To break the stigma around cannabis use is important too, and to help people understand that there’s a lot to be gained from responsible use of the plant and that you can incorporate cannabis into your life as part of an overall healthy and happy lifestyle.

The negative stereotypical perceptions many have about cannabis are so misguided, so I feel inspired to be part of the conversation that can help shift these perceptions around.

Cannabis can benefit humanity in extraordinary ways, and I’m excited to learn and discover more about this incredible plant and to help raise awareness and spread knowledge about it in positive and empowering ways.

So if you have a Podcast about cannabis, then I would love to be on it and share my experiences with your audience and the world — Simply contact me and we’ll take it from there!

(Or if you know of a Podcast that talks about these things then maybe you can send them my info and the link to my cannabis related articles: https://mariaerving.com/?s=cannabis – Thank you.)

I had a complete turnaround to my situation

The distance healing was amazing. I had a complete turnaround to my situation so many thanks for helping me transform something I had lost hope about. It’s a miracle and the outcome could not have turned out better! If you want to see a real shift not just psychological but spiritual shift, then Maria is the lady to see. I am so glad I found you!

– Sophie P

Could not more highly recommend

Maria is the real deal. You will sense it the moment you lay eyes on her. She offered much, much more than I’ve derived from other teachers; highly specific and personal recommendations. It is as though I got a crash graduate course from spirit. Could not more highly recommend!

Catherine Rondeau, Westport, Connecticut, USA

I’ve never had a conversation like that before

I just wanted to say thank you so much again for our session yesterday, I’ve never had a conversation like that before and it was truly amazing. I could feel weight lifted as we were talking and for the first time my mind did not try to make sense of things, it was all truly felt in the heart space.

Val, Melbourne, Australia

I have never felt more aligned to my true self

Maria’s awareness of energies and the conditions of the mind are truly impressive. She knows exactly what’s going on. She is so attuned to other peoples’ energy that she just knows where you’re at. After working with her I have never felt more alive and aligned to my true self.

Andrew B, San Diego, CA, USA

You have really made a difference in how my mind works

I don’t know if I make sense, but all I can say is that I feel blissful. And I can’t thank you enough for that. I don’t know exactly how you managed this, but you have really made a difference in how my mind works.

– Silvia, Marbella, Spain

Profound shift

I can’t put into words how much you have helped me. I couldn’t have kept it all together had I not experienced a PROFOUND shift during and after my session with you.

My life has changed dramatically

Since plugging in to your words of wisdom my life has changed dramatically. You pointed me in the right direction and that gave me courage to continue moving through whatever process I may find myself in and the ability to take refuge in the truth within me.

A calm came over me

I could feel the tension leaving my body and a calm came over me by just being in her presence. Everything flows so naturally with her and my life is more beautiful and I feel at peace knowing I have her by my side. I feel blessed to have her in my life.

Cecilia, Stockholm, Sweden

Thank you, Maria!

I couldn’t be more grateful to have Maria in my life. Her guidance and energy is profound!

– Robert, CA, USA

I was taken over by a peacefulness

After our session, something happened within me that I cannot explain nor would it even make sense to anyone. There was a part of me that felt my being been taken over by a real peacefulness that I’ve never encountered before. Sounds odd but it’s the truth.

Maria helped me recreate my life

Maria is amazing. She is a gift to this world with an incredible intuitive ability. She has helped me to refocus my energy and recreate my life.

C. Málaga, Spain

I needed help in getting my life back

From the first sentence you spoke directly related to what I was going through, I felt so uplifted and light. It still blows me away when I think about it now! Never once did I feel judged, or uncomfortable in any way. I feel like this heavy weight of negativity has fallen away from me and I couldn’t get those awful feelings back if I tried. I can’t stress enough what a gift it is to be able to work with somebody like Maria. Talk about amazing grace!

Maria is leading people to a new way of being

Maria is changing the world by her presence. She’s leading people to a new way of being. She’s rare because she’s able to see where you are at in your journey and can show you the way forward. I feel so incredibly grateful that she has been a companion during this time of change. If you feel drawn to connect with Maria I encourage you to move forward with confidence.

– Carolyn W. Asheville, NC, USA

My life has radically changed for the better

I finally know my worth. I feel so different now, I feel lighter, happier and more self confident and it’s easy to let go of people and situations that don’t serve me. I treasure the time I spend talking with Maria and look forward to my sessions with her. There has been big changes in my life, synchronicities showing up like magic and I’m constantly blown away at the business and opportunities that I’m attracting. My life has radically changed for the better after I met Maria.

— Robin, New York, USA

The feeling of peace and freedom is priceless

With only that one session and the healing she carried out, I’ve been without grudges, feelings of being hurt or anything on those lines. This feeling of peace and freedom is priceless. Maria is beyond amazing. Had I not experienced it myself, I would probably not believe it. I recommend anyone who is trying hard to be truly free and really start walking down the path of self fulfillment and happiness to book a session with her.

It was more than I could ever hoped for or expected

My experience with Maria was more than I could ever hoped for or expected. I had such a positive experience working with her. I feel like a huge weight have been lifted and I have so much more perspective on what I have been struggling with. She cleared up my energy and I feel more myself, more at peace and all around better mentally and emotionally since my sessions with her.

Miriam, Espoo, Finland

Can’t recommend her enough!

Working with Maria was one of the best investments I ever made in myself. I’ve seen immediate shifts in my energy as well as learned to work with my own energy and mind. It has been one of the single most transformational experiences of my life. Can’t recommend her enough!

– Chris, USA

Connecting with you is magical

Maria THANK YOU. Sometimes just by connecting with you even briefly gives me instant clarity, it’s really magical, thank you so much. I trust your guidance so much, I’m just so grateful!

Something happened within me that I cannot explain

After our session, something happened within me that I cannot explain nor would it even make sense to anyone. There was a part of me that felt my being been taken over by a real peacefulness that I’ve never encountered before. Sounds odd but it’s the truth.

– A.

More transformational than any other thing that I’ve tried

I highly recommend Maria! I don’t even recognize the person who started working with her a few months ago. Maria clearly sees what is blocking, stopping or limiting you. Working with her has been more transformational than any other thing that I’ve tried. There have been profound shifts in the way I see myself and the world, so many shifts in my energy and life. I find myself so much lighter and freer. Thank you Maria!

Britt, Marbella, Spain

Her unique ability to read your state helped me to breakthrough

Maria’s intuitive abilities have been instrumental to the personal growth I’ve experienced as a result of working together. I’ve had HUGE shifts in my beliefs. Her undivided attention, presence and unique ability to read your state helped me to breakthrough and release old patterns and replace them with new self-empowering practices that have truly shifted my life. I would highly recommend Maria to anyone. I am forever changed and forever grateful!

Joanna, USA

 I am so glad that I reached out to you

Maria, you are truly godsend. I cannot describe how happy I am. I have no idea what you did and how you did, but I am truly grateful to you. My words in this email cannot thank you enough. Today is the first day that I woke up feeling as if I am ready to take on the world. I am so glad that I reached out to you. I am truly grateful to you. I will definitely recommend you to my friends and family!


I cannot believe what you were able to achieve in one session

I don’t really know where to start. I find myself at a loss for words. All I can say to you is Thank You. This was unlike any healing session that I have ever been in and I say that from the bottom of my skeptical, over analytical heart who had literally tried everything one could think of. I cannot recommend you enough to other people, you are a gift. I also cannot believe what you were able to achieve in one session, to me it is groundbreaking. Thank you!!!

Rosie Bebawi, Marbella, Spain

You are truly a gift to us all!

I can’t even begin to express how much I have gained internally after my session with you. You have been an instrument of peace in my life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

– Owen, USA

I experienced a PROFOUND shift 

I can’t put into words how much you have helped me. I couldn’t have kept it all together had I not experienced a PROFOUND shift during and after my session with you.

The whole session felt as if it was operating on another level

If you can trust one thing in your life right now, trust Maria. You can trust her with your heart and soul. It’s hard to explain, the whole session felt as if it was operating on another level. I’ve never had that kind of experience before. It just felt so much bigger than I anticipated. I can tell you with absolute honesty and conviction that having a session with Maria is life-changing!

– Lisa, USA

I certainly did not expect this

I certainly did not expect this, l have had periods of such intense joy and bliss, Love with an underlying peace that’s been consistent. l don’t understand it intellectually but my heart see’s it clearly. It’s been wonderful, I feel a true sense of connection and being rooted with in and there is just an openness and trust, and a sense of wonder and amazement. I am truly grateful, Thank you. Sincerely.
