There’s no denying the beauty and grace of the feminine, in all forms of expression, size, shape, and color. But it isn’t all sunshine and rainbows. Being a woman ain’t easy, and having a uterus can be a real pain. Hence, it’s important to have a real discussion about the best cannabis strains for women to grow.
Cannabis And The Female Form
It’s no secret that cannabis is used medicinally for all kinds of conditions, both mental and physical. Considering that half the population of the planet has female reproductive organs, it’s about time we consider weed as a holistic approach to combating symptoms related to menstruation and menopause.
Menstrual cramping can be straight-up unbearable, and is often accompanied by migraines, mood changes, and anxiety. Luckily, the uterus is totally covered in endocannabinoid receptors, making marijuana particularly effective against discomfort downstairs.
Menopause is usually accompanied by hot flashes induced by hormonal fluctuations. Cannabis, research reveals, has the ability to cool the overall temperature of the body, helping to control hot flashes and assist in finding balance.
The Benefits Of Different Weed Types For Women
By first recognizing what symptoms can be treated with cannabis, we can then consider what type of cannabis strains might be most beneficial. Plants from CBD seeds are super effective at combating inflammation and muscle spasms, especially for endometriosis patients. Our other favorite cannabinoid, THC, is fantastic as a sleep aid and a solution to pain management.
Ladies should also think about the following: what time of day do you normally experience discomfort? For daytime distress, Sativas and CBD strains are the way to go. For nighttime issues like insomnia and night sweats, an Indica would be more appropriate.
