Over the years, cannabis has been viewed as a taboo, a bad omen and an evil. Prior to this belief, cannabis might be just what you need.
Why Women Should Use Cannabis for Menstruation Pain and PMS
The misunderstood plant can help increase the quality of your life as a woman. For a start, cannabis alleviates the dreadful cramps women have during menstruation since the plant’s molecular similarities to estrogen (a major hormone in the maintenance of the female reproductive system) helps to stabilize hormones.
Cannabis doesn’t only help in reducing cramps, it reduces PMS (Premenstrual Syndrome) symptoms such as bloating, irritability and sleep disturbances.
Dealing with Anxiety with Cannabis
Also, it helps relieve symptoms of anxiety and stress. According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, women are twice as likely to suffer from generalized anxiety disorder than men. Little wonder they arrived at this conclusion with things like postpartum depression, hormonal changes and societal pressures women go through.
Researchers have found out that cannabis has profound effects on the brain’s endocannabinoid system, which regulates anxiety and stress. So, the next time you’re about to lose it due to all the ruckus going on upstairs, try cannabis.
A life enhancer for women
Speaking of ruckus, it is understandable that most women suffer from insomnia (hormonal changes and bodily reactions to stress are responsible for this). Cannabis has a tremendous ability to induce sleep, and for insomnia sufferers, it can be a blessing. Speaking of cannabis as a blessing, it is rather usual that most women are suffering in their respective sex lives and cannabis can help in spicing up your sex life.

Creativity on Cannabis
Cannabis, at its perplexing best again, helps improve creativity. The plant produces psychotomimetic (a psychological term that explains abstract thinking) symptoms, which in turn may lead to connecting seemingly unrelated concepts, an aspect of divergent thinking considered primary to creative thinking.
So, basically, cannabis helps your ‘mind eye’ see the unseen. According to a 2012 study in consciousness and cognition, it was found that divergent thinking, a measure of creativity was accompanied with cannabis. Now, who said cannabis is evil? It really might be what you need to spice up your life and increase its quality!
