Women have been under tremendous pressure to handle many tasks since ancient times . Mentors , nurses , and CEOs are only a few of the many roles women play . More women are becoming more interested in cannabis due to their often-expanded roles in society . An edible , tincture , or even a dab is now the equivalent of a glass of wine for this large group . Women usually shun cannabis products because marijuana has always been perceived as a gateway drug . Consequently , many women have been forced to make difficult decisions that clash against societal norms . Moms who use cannabis are the most influential consumers , and the rest of the world will be paying attention soon .

What Are Women Consuming ?
It seems that dabs are becoming more and more popular among women , which can be attributed in part to the fact that many women prefer dabs with natural flavors . As a general rule , women are more interested in things like terpene profiles and how the plant is grown and processed .

Women ’ s Health
Quite a few women suffer from monthly pain that sometimes can be unbearable . In some cases , marijuana can be used as a topical treatment for these pains , allowing the patient to apply directly onto the site of the pain . Women can also use infused suppositories that will help with pain as well as increase the amount of moisture in the vaginal area . There are also women who experience pain during sex .

Mental Health
Many women were affected by the pandemic . In the blink of an eye , they became a teacher , a principal , a lunch server , and many more things at once .

Overall Wellness
