Let’s make 2018 the year that we change that and educate ourselves. There is much more to the cannabis plant than a basic high — including the overlooked option of receiving the wellness and treatment benefits. For instance earlier this year, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine analyzed more than 10,000 studies to see what can conclusively be stated about the benefits of cannabis. Among the findings, it’s been discovered that cannabis can reduce suffering from: chronic pain, spasms linked to multiple sclerosis and nausea from chemotherapy.
Cannabis contains over 113 different chemical compounds known as cannabinoids. THC is the most infamous of these since this is the compound that provides the high. However, in 2018 it’s important women clearly understand the benefits of CBD, which has no psychoactive effect and a growing list of health benefits — including functioning as a mild antidepressant, as well as being useful in the treatment of age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases.
Mainstream science is only starting to unlock the potential of the plant and 2018 promises to be a significant year with new insights and understanding — let’s resolve to stay on top of these developments and how they can potentially support us.
Research shows that 70 per cent of women believe that cannabis consumption carries a stigma still, and so 66 per cent of women still hide their use, creating a self-perpetuating cycle of shame.
Let’s make 2018 the year to change this.
Traditional medical research tends to focus on male subjects and presumes these same outcomes apply to women. This is shifting as researchers are expanding their studies based on the diverse outcomes between genders with the interplay of physical, psychological, economic and social.
