More on Cannabis Health Benefits for Women:

1. It helps relieve symptoms of anxiety and stress

Women are twice as likely to suffer from generalized anxiety disorder than men, and PTSD, according to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America.

Postpartum depression, pregnancy, hormonal changes, and societal pressures are all to blame for this statistic. So, it’s only right that women would benefit from the plants ability to induce relaxation and ease tension.

Researchers have found that cannabis has profound effects on the brain’s endocannabinoid system, which regulates anxiety and stress.

2. It helps induce sleep and combat insomnia

According to www.womenhealth.gov Women are more likely to have insomnia than men. One reason is that hormonal changes during the menstrual cycle and menopause can affect sleep. During perimenopause, women may have trouble falling asleep and staying asleep. Hot flashes and night sweats often can disturb sleep.

Some medical conditions that can cause secondary insomnia also are more common in women than men. These include depression, anxiety, fibromyalgia, and some sleep disorders, such as restless leg syndrome. Marijuana’s ability to induce sleep is one of its best qualities, and for insomnia sufferers, it can be a blessing when compared to the effects and hazards of sleeping pills.

3. It alleviates PMS symptoms

PMS symptoms like bloating, migraines, period cramps, headaches, hot flashes, chills, irritability and sleep disturbances can all be alleviated with Cannabis use. 

In Fact, cannabis has been used to alleviate symptoms of PMS for thousands of years. Even Queen Victoria of England relied on cannabis for her menstrual cramps.

Given the plant’s molecular similarities to estrogen, Cannabis helps to stabilize hormones whereas OTC medications merely treat the symptoms.

4. Epilepsy

Although most epilepsy syndromes are equally or more commonly found in males than in females, childhood absence epilepsy and the syndrome of photosensitive epilepsy are more common in females. In addition, some genetic disorders with associated epilepsy (eg, Rett syndrome and Aicardi syndrome) and eclamptic seizures in pregnancy can only occur in females. The age-adjusted incidences for simple and complex partial and generalized tonic-clonic seizures are higher for men than women. 

Seizures and seizure disorders are as unique as the person afflicted by them, which can make seizures difficult to treat. Recently, epilepsy and cannabis have been highlighted in the news, especially success stories focusing on children with epilepsy who are trying medicinal cannabis.
