Historically women have been less likely to use cannabis than men. The use of cannabis has remained less accessed by women possibly due to the stigma around its use, or that they may have been less aware of its benefit.
Regardless of the reluctance of women to embrace cannabis throughout history, there are several perfectly good reasons why they may want to include it in their health routine now.
A woman can go through many physical transformations throughout her life. From menstruation to menopause, these hormonal changes are a continual source of discomfort and pain. There are several ways that cannabis can be beneficial to women and their gynecological health.
Interestingly, a women’s pelvic organs have a high density of CBD (cannabidiol) receptors. Although the reason for the abundance of these receptors is unknown, they do serve to maintain a sense of homeostatic balance within the female body.
A Brief History
Women have been using cannabis for thousands of years, the earliest in Mesopotamia, where they consumed a botanical agent called Azallú. Subsequently, women in China, Persia, Isreal/Palestine, and Syria all consumed cannabis to help with the relief of urinary tract infections, menopausal symptoms, abnormal bleeding, bloating, and painful cramps.

Marijuana and Menstruation
Cannabis interacts with the endocannabinoid system. Among many other functions, the endocannabinoid system is integral to female reproductive processes. As fluctuations and imbalances occur, the endocannabinoid system synthesizes endocannabinoids, binding them with cannabinoid receptors present in the brain, the immune system, and the peripheral nervous system, bringing functions back into balance. Sometimes there is an insufficient amount of these endocannabinoids. Cannabis-based cannabinoids supplement our body’s endocannabinoids, helping our endocannabinoid system regulate our various system’s functionality effectively.
So, this would then relate to deficiencies in endocannabinoids, any female reproductive issues, and the benefits to the overall gynecological health of women.
A growing number of women are turning to cannabis to address some occasionally debilitating symptoms caused by monthly periods, which include fatigue, diarrhea, nausea, muscle aches, and abdominal cramps. While research is still lacking, there is no denying cannabis’ ability to relieve pain. Its anti-inflammatory properties can help lower pain associated with inflammation of the uterus, as research has shown that there are cannabinoid receptors located on cells throughout the uterus. Women suffering from endometriosis pain can also find relief from cannabis.
Marijuana and Menopause
Women experiencing menopause can suffer from several symptoms, including insomnia, osteoporosis, fatigue, pain, mood swings, and hot flashes. Having all these symptoms going on can also lead to anxiety and depression. With the incorporation of cannabis, the transition can be made a rather easier process, and the pain can be managed.
Medical research is showing that the endocannabinoid system and estrogen are closely linked, even suggesting that early onset menopause may be related to endocannabinoid deficiencies.
The Benefit to Women’s Health
There has been an increase in the level of awareness of the benefits of cannabis on women’s health, and in buying weed online Canada. The paradigm has shifted regarding the use of cannabis to treat women’s suffering due to gynecological disruptions, revealing how the endocannabinoid system plays such a significant role in the gynecological health of women.
