There are over 60 million menopause women in the United States, and over 80% of those women experience debilitating and life shortening symptoms such as hot flashes and insomnia. Only 7% get a prescription to relieve those symptoms since there is a persistent (and false) perception that estrogen is dangerous. Many post menopause women are turning to cannabis. Dr. Lauren Streicher, a clinical professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University, and the Medical Director of the Northwestern Medicine Program for Menopause will discuss the potential role of cannabinoids in menopausal women.
