Menopause 101

This week’s episode starts our new series exploring the intersection of menopause and cannabis. I kick off the conversation by delving into the complexities of menopause – it has more than 30 symptoms – and shedding light on a life transition that is often only spoken about in whispers. You’ll hear expert insights into perimenopause and menopause, plus moving stories from women who share what they wish they had known about menopause a lot sooner. Stay tuned, as we share why one in four women are choosing cannabis to help relieve menopause symptoms. 
I’m thrilled that How to Do the Pot has won two Signal Awards, which honor and celebrate the people and content that raise the bar for podcasting.

Thank you to the esteemed judges and special thanks to everyone who voted!
