There is ample research available to support the theory that cannabis can help ease our aches and pains. It’s not a stretch to acknowledge these medicinal properties can extend to the pain and discomfort often associated with a menstrual cycle. So why isn’t this potential remedy shared far and wide between uterus-owning individuals?
These social stigmas make discussing either topic taboo. It is only logical that two taboo subjects combined would not be a frequent topic of discussion. Even as such discussion could generate a mass of potential benefits. We have evidence to show cannabis has been used in the treatment of menstrual discomfort and other uterine issues throughout history. However, due to these stigmas, there is likely a much larger history that was lost to time.
With modern-day legalization, we saw a rebirth of cannabis-based solutions for menstrual discomfort. Medicated tampons, suppositories, and lube are just a few of the items to hit the market in recent years. Here at Substance, we have a few favorite products we like to recommend for these uses.
