Women & Weed

From women making up a significant portion of executive roles at cannabis companies to products specifically made for women, people are beginning to realize that cannabis isn’t just a boys’ club.

More and more, women are using cannabis for a multitude of medical, recreational, and personal reasons, and even reaching for cannabis at the end of the day instead of alcohol. The mind-shift around cannabis is happening and women are taking note that while alcohol can leave them feeling sick, bloated, and hungover, cannabis leaves them feeling a little silly and possibly a little hungry and sleepy. Even better, women can enjoy different strains to tailor to their needs and desired effects.

Women and men use cannabis for many of the same reasons, but here are some ways women are using cannabis that you may not have thought about:

Migraine

We’re not saying it’s only a women’s issue, but according to the Migraine Research Foundation, out of 38 million American migraine sufferers, 28 million are women. Anyone who suffers from occasional or chronic migraines can tell you they are painful, overwhelming, and also come with different symptoms like distorted vision and auras, nausea, dizziness, and sensitivity to light and sound.

Health

Cannabis has many benefits; in fact, Fulla Nayak, who was claimed to be 150 years old at the time of her death, said that smoking cannabis every day was her secret to a long life. Not sure how you can incorporate cannabis into your EVERYDAY life? How about microdosing? Microdosing is consuming a small amount of cannabis to reap benefits without having to experience the psychoactive effects that are normally attributed to cannabis use.

The most important part of microdosing is starting low, trying out different strains, and keeping track of how it makes you feel. For more info on getting started, check out our blog on the topic.

Stress

Not dealing with daily stress can lead to physical manifestations like hair loss, lowered immunity, sleeplessness, skin ailments, and stomach issues. Stress can occur at any time, which is why we find the CBD-rich strain AC/DC to be a great option. Since AC/DC has significantly more CBD than THC, it’s a mellow option when you need relief but don’t want to be too spacey.

Creativity

Feeling a creative block? Take a page from fellow creative women like Maya Angelou, Susan Sarandon, Rihanna, Melissa Etheridge, Lady Gaga, and Miley Cyrus, all women who have said cannabis helps them get into a creative state.

Reach for a hybrid strain like CENSOREDland, or Durban Lime, both offer an upbeat head high to fuel creative pastimes.

You-Time

Between having a meaningful career, social obligations, and family, women tend to split themselves into many different roles; often, taking care of other people before themselves. Cannabis can be a wonderful addition to well-deserved “You-time,” whatever that means for you. Whether you’re listening to your favorite music, practicing yoga, or doing something creative, grab something like Cherry Pie for a refreshing and subtle effect to help you relax and let yourself enjoy some time alone to rejuvenate your mind and soul.

Menstruation

This is going to seem obvious, but having your period is a pretty lousy time of the month for many women. Periods come with a plethora of unpleasant physical and mental symptoms varying in severity that women are easing with cannabis.

Seasoned Stoner

If your motto is, “It’s always 4:20 somewhere,” you might be a seasoned stoner. You know what you like but will rarely turn down something new.
