The Benefits of Cannabis for Women 

Though Women’s History Month recently ended, we should acknowledge and celebrate women all year round! Women are powerful beings that are capable of bringing life into this world. Cannabis offers many benefits for both men and women, but today we are focusing on what cannabis can do specifically for women. Read on to find out some of the great benefits of cannabis for women! 

Menstrual Symptoms 

Women’s bodies consistently go through monthly cycles. It is common for women to suffer from hormonal imbalances and pain during their menstrual cycles. Cannabis is a great option to treat the cramps, muscle aches, nausea, and mood swings that are commonly associated with the menstrual cycle. These symptoms are commonly known as PMS (Premenstrual Syndrome) and can impact one’s physical and mental health, so cannabis is a great way to get women through this time every month.

Skin Care 

As a woman, nothing beats a nice at-home spa day with a good facial. Skincare is so important in ensuring that our skin stays healthy and ages well. Both hemp seed oil and CBD have properties within them that help heal, care for, and rejuvenate the skin. Hemp seed oil contains high levels of fatty acids, which help to soothe and hydrate irritable skin. CBD has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, making both cannabis-derived byproducts great for skin conditions such as eczema as well as regular daily skincare. 

Mental Health 

In today’s fast-paced world, women are constantly balancing work, relationships, family, and more every single day. Scientifically, women tend to suffer from depression more than men. Studies show that low doses of cannabis can help reduce both depression and anxiety symptoms because of the serotonin it produces. It’s important to note that small doses are specifically better for treating these symptoms. Though the effects won’t last quite as long, too large of a dose can sometimes worsen symptoms.

Did you know that cannabis can help to improve a woman’s sexual health?

Cannabinoid receptors are involved in sexual function. A study done by a medical center in St Louis, Missouri showed that about one-third of women reported using cannabis before engaging in sexual activity. The women who consumed cannabis prior to sexual activity were twice as likely to report that they had “satisfactory” orgasms. Similar to using cannabis for mental health symptoms, using it as an aphrodisiac is better in small doses.
