Black and white. Day and night. Hot and cold. That’s what men and women are, two completely different worlds. Not that this is new, of course, but not everyone is aware of the differences in the effects related to the use of Marijuana Light in women’s health versus men’s health.
In fact, let’s say that marijuana has always been linked for some reason to men, however in recent times something has changed. Especially in countries where cannabis and its derivative products are completely legal, their purchase by the female universe is growing exponentially. But what are the reasons that make women approach the world of Marijuana Light? Let’s find out together!
Do the effects of Marijuana Light change according to gender?
Apparently yes, Marijuana Light use produces different effects in men and women. This is claimed by a recent study conducted at the University of Cagliari in collaboration with the CNR (National Research Center). According to the research, published in Frontiers Behavioral Neuroscience, the difference in effects would be caused by hormones. The scholars analyzed the interactions between the active ingredients of cannabis and the main male and female hormones, namely testosterone, progesterone and estrogen.
It was found that men are 4 times more likely to try Marijuana Light, use higher doses and more frequently. However, women would move more easily from simple use to addiction. This would be due to estradiol, a hormone produced in the ovaries that regulates women’s response to cannabinoids.
The endocannabinoid system is definitely influenced by the action of sex hormones, and it appears that female hormones make women more sensitive and more prone to an effective response to THC and CBD.
Marijuana Light: when can it help women?
Women often find Marijuana Light a valuable ally for treating various ailments related to women’s health, such as menstrual pain and menopause, but also for combating anxiety and stress. Numerous clinical studies have validated the positive, effective, and contraindication-free influence of Marijuana Light in women.
The menopausal period and the stages leading up to it bring numerous changes, both physical and psychological, to women. These changes lead to a general imbalance that is often a cause of discomfort. Cannabinoids are crucial in helping the body regain its homeostasis, that is, the physiological balance that makes us feel our best. This is why CBD is the ideal solution! By stimulating the activities of the endocannabinoid system, the cannabinoid acts as an estrogen regulator, limiting inflammation and having an anxiolytic and relaxing effect. CBD helps many women restore their balance, giving them peace of mind during this period of adjustment.
Science has amply demonstrated the effectiveness that cannabinoids have in relaxing contracted muscles due to the cycle and related issues, such as inflammation and mood swings. This is why in some countries it is even the healthcare system that covers the medical costs of women suffering from PMS who are treated with cannabis. Cannabis, therapeutic and CBD-based products have marked a turning point in the women’s field, so much so that they have changed the gender statistics on the consumption of Marijuana Light and its derivatives. They, in fact, in addition to combating classic menstrual pain, have also demonstrated important beneficial effects on hormonal or female reproductive system-related conditions, such as endometriosis, polycystic ovary syndrome, dysmenorrhea, and hormonal acne.
This is one of the most common and most painful disorders of the female reproductive system. In recent times, thanks in part to the spread of information, many women are resorting to medical cannabis. Cannabinoids, in fact, produce a pain-relieving, anti-inflammatory and relaxing effect. They are also able to regulate and normalize hormone production. We hope that as more studies are conducted, the prescription of therapeutic cannabis for the treatment of endometriosis will become more widely used and easier to enable women to effectively combat this condition.
Postpartum depression is a common consequence of the physical and psychological changes a woman faces after childbirth. Even today, there is still a tendency to hide this reality rather than face it, but there are more women suffering from this disorder than we think. Many studies claim that Marijuana Light can replace antidepressant drugs very effectively and with fewer contraindications. However, scientific research is still too scarce to claim that CBD and THC have no effect on a baby’s health during breastfeeding. More studies related to this area are currently underway, so we are confident that more data will be available in the future to evaluate this type of treatment.
Sex hormones play a key role in the proper functioning of the endocannabinoid system. As confirmed by scientific studies to date, female ones make women more sensitive and predisposed to have significant clinical responses from taking Marijuana Light.
While waiting for new research to further confirm these data, we at CBD Therapy look forward to seeing you in our online store, where you can find top quality products and unmissable weekly offers.
