Thanks to scientific advances in medical cannabis research, more and more innovative treatments, aimed at treating women’s health problems, are being made available to the public. Every day there are more specific alternative treatment options beyond conventional medicine.
Some studies show that medical marijuana kills breast cancer cells
With breast cancer being the leading cause of cancer death among women, medical marijuana in Santa Cruz could prove to be a promising answer. In 2014, the California Pacific Medical Research Group discovered that Cannabidiol (CBD), the non-psychoactive compound found in cannabis, is effective in preventing metastasis (tumour spread) in breast cancer cells by inhibiting genes key involved. Although this is a more recent study, similar findings already pointed to the efficacy of the compound in 1996.
Compared to treatments like chemotherapy, CBD has a very low toxicity profile. It can be especially beneficial when used in conjunction with other cannabis compounds: thousands of people claim to have treated their disease with pure CBD extract, some of whom claim that CBD has kept the disease at bay.
When combined, the cannabinoids THC and CBD have been shown to be incredibly effective in calming menstrual cramps and dysmenorrhea. THC acts as an analgesic, reducing the sensation of pain. In contrast, CBD acts as an anti-inflammatory, interacting with vital parts of the immune system, slowing down electrical transmission to the muscles so they can relax.
The company ‘Foria Pleasure’ had launched the first vaginal suppositories, also known as “herb tampons,” which act by activating cannabinoid receptors in the pelvic region and affecting the nerve endings of the uterus, cervix, ovaries and surrounding muscle tissue.
Meanwhile, the legendary actress Whoopi Goldberg and the founder of the cannabis edibles company ‘Om Edibles’, Maya Elisabeth, had also launched together a medical line of cannabis for menstrual relief called Whoopi & Maya. By combining the power of cannabinoid with the power of other natural healing ingredients, the product aims to provide relief through lavender baths, cannabis washes, raw cocoa, body balms, and tinctures.
More Female Orgasms: Strains Designed For Your Pleasure
While cannabis has always been considered a plant with aphrodisiac properties in some of its variants, now there is cannabis specifically designed to help women have mind-blowing sexual experiences. One of these low-THC strains has been developed by Karyn Wagner to bring women into a “sensual” state of mind while avoiding the psychotropic effects that can lead to difficulty in the act.
Cannabis consultant Eloise Theisen claimed that “women need less THC in general, and high levels of this substance can promote anti-estrogen activity.”
However, with a strain that has low THC, the body’s endocannabinoid system can be activated, which is enough to help regain hormonal balance.
With the legalization of medical marijuana in more and more territories of the United States, the use of the healing properties of cannabis for women’s health will continue to increase.
