The cannabis community, though still has male dominance more than female. It is changing a little, but not as much as it should. Society has accepted the fact that many people use cannabis and there are women who take pride in doing so, regardless of how others feel about it. But, there are women who are still afraid of letting people know that they indulge in this habit. It is a culture that is getting noticed and so more women will come out of their closet. Nothing is there to be ashamed of because cannabis is supposed to be part of the ‘healing of the land,' as most advocates will swear to. Let us look at some of the reasons why women use cannabis.

Pain, Anxiety and PMS
Of course, we all know that many women suffer from PMS and as a result might endure symptoms like anxiety, cramps and pain during their bout of PMS. There are over-the-counter pain killers and pills to combat PMS, but not all of them work as efficiently as women want and so that is why some of them use cannabis. Many women have PMS so bad that they have to get prescribed medication, but those come with side effects. The THC in the cannabis has been known to alleviate symptoms such as bloating, nausea and headaches.
Many times, it is said that women have more stress than men because of they have to multitask more than men do. For that reason, when stress sets in, a woman wants to use cannabis to get that chilled feeling. Weed helps the woman to relieve her anxiety and stress, giving her a calmer exterior and a low-keyed state of mind. In other words, it provides more balance for her, giving her a more positive outlook.
When a woman decides to use cannabis, she might be doing so to lose weight or manage her weight gain. Yes, many say that cannabis can help you to lose weight as other women have proven. Of course, you all know that you still have to maintain a healthy diet and include exercise into your daily routine.
