Benefits of Medical Marijuana for Women’s Health

By Rolling Up

There’s been an increased knowledge of medical marijuana in recent years, which has changed social norms. When medical marijuana first came out, people were skeptical of its validity, but research has shown that it’s a legitimate therapy by some. In particular, it’s helping women relieve ailments and pains. Women are at the forefront of the cannabis movement in health and beauty products. This movement is leading the change that is necessary for legalization to happen in the future. 


Reduces Acne

CBD skincare is booming on the market. The products are being marketed for everything from acne to wrinkles. CBD oil acts as an anti-inflammatory, which is an effective acne treatment. The compound acts directly on the cells that make sebum, helping balance oil production and reduce redness and inflammation on the skin. 


Helps with Periods

That time of the month is painful for most women. Practitioners of alternative medicine frequently include menstrual cramps as one of the conditions medical marijuana can help treat. Menstrual pain can interfere with daily routine and prevent from moving about daily activities. THC can be used as a muscle relaxant, and it has the power to give women serious relief from cramps.


Makes Menopause Easier

One in four female veterans says they’ve used cannabis to address symptoms of menopause. There’s good science behind the connection between menopause and the body’s natural endocannabinoid system. Studies suggest that the endocannabinoid system plays a massive role in regulating body temperature. Finding the proper dose will take experimentation and time. 


Depression

Women are two and a half times more likely to use antidepressants than men. Research shows that THC in low doses can help alleviate depression, but higher amounts can make the problem worse.
