Let’s Talk About: Cannabis & Menopause: How Can it Help Soothe?

Menopause can be one of the most dramatic changes a woman’s body will undertake in her lifetime. Not since puberty has the reproductive system gone through such a shift, and the experience is not always pleasant or easy for women.

Hot flashes, mood swings, pain, insomnia, and other symptoms of menopause are what many face with sometimes no relief from conventional options.

New science and old medicine are starting to show that Cannabis can be an extremely helpful ally at this transitional time for women!

Please join our guest expert, Dr. Colagiovanni, Holistic Health Practioner; Neuroscientist and author of Vitamin Weed, Dr. Michele Ross; and your Ellementa SF host Tali Eisenberg, to learn how our endocannabinoid system and this powerful plant ally can aide and ease menopausal symptoms for some.

Dr. Ross will also be there with her Vitamin Weed books for signing.

Dr. Michele Ross

Dr. Michele Ross has a Doctorate in Neuroscience and is both a cannabinoid medicine researcher and a cannabis patient. After being diagnosed with fibromyalgia, neuropathy, and chronic pelvic pain, cannabis was the only thing that reduced her symptoms and allowed her to return to work. After hearing thousands of extraordinary patient stories just like hers, Dr. Ross was compelled to ensure cannabis becomes part of the American healthcare system.

As a neuroscientist, Dr. Michele Ross was frustrated by the lack of education on the endocannabinoid system both doctors and scientists received, despite medical cannabis being used by millions of patients nationwide. In 2013, she founded the “Endocannabinoid Deficiency Foundation,” now known as IMPACT Network, with the mission to drive clinical research on cannabis for women’s health. She is now CEO of Infused Health, an online platform for cannabis coaching.

Dr. Ross is a proud advocate of botanical and psychedelic medicine and has formulated and marketed nutraceuticals for companies around the globe. She has also been a leader in digital health and education, crafting continuing medical education for health professionals as well as creating online communities for patients. She is also the author of two books, “Train Your Brain to Get Thin” and “Vitamin Weed: A 4-Step Plan to Prevent and Reverse Endocannabinoid Deficiency.” Dr. Ross holds a Doctorate in Neuroscience from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and has researched addiction, mental health, and psychopharmacology for over a decade.

One of her dearest accomplishments to date has been creating a Senior Cannabis 101 Outreach Program/Manual, which she currently teaches with a 73-year-old nurse, Barbara Blaser, RN of 50 years to seniors in the Bay on the science and medical benefits of cannabis for health and wellbeing. They have taught thousands of seniors in the three years of its programming to help re-educate and de-stigma this medicinal and supportive plant.
