Got PMS? Soon your doctor might write a Rx for weed
by Taryn Hillin
Centuries ago, women used to rely on cannabis to combat everything from cramps to swollen breasts—but can these remedies be applied today?
As more states move to legalize marijuana, more people are beginning to think creatively about how pot can improve our everyday lives. And while the drug’s potential to spice up women’s sex lives has been well-documented, medical professionals are only starting to look at how cannabis could benefit women in other intimate ways.
Some “green doctors” have already begun to recommend cannabis for period-related issues—in California, for example, premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), an extreme form of PMS, is listed as a qualifying condition for a medical marijuana card.
