It’s no longer a secret that marijuana helps relieve a plethora of conditions, from anxiety and depression to inflammation and muscle pain. Menstruation is no exception. Many menstruating women use (and have used for millennia) this plant to fight menstrual pain, thanks to its natural analgesic properties.
Since these conditions affect about 80% of the world’s menstruating population, any new treatment is welcome. So we spoke with Tabitha Fritz, a specialist in women’s health and cannabis expert, to get a little perspective on the benefits that marijuana can provide for menstruation.
How it works?
It is not difficult to understand that the most common use of marijuana regarding menstruation is the relief of cramps and PMS. But it must be specified that cannabis is also useful for combating other symptoms, such as interrupted sleep, headaches or migraines, stomach aches and digestive problems. It also helps to deal with less physical and more emotional symptoms, such as irritability.
What’s really interesting is that the female reproductive system has a high concentration of endocannabinoid receptors. This makes menstruating individuals particularly susceptible to the effects of cannabis in internal use products.
It is also essential to note that estrogen levels, which fluctuate during the menstrual cycle, directly influence the cannabis experience.
