Treating period cramps with cannabis

Menstrual pain has been a part of my life since going through puberty. The pain can become debilitating and negatively impact daily activities. Over the years, I’ve tried a variety of medications with limited success. Most prescriptions come with side-effects that are downright dangerous. While I was unhappy about the cramps, I was unwilling to risk further medical issues. Not all that long ago, I decided to do some research, hoping there were new and better options available. I read that many women are finding relief from painful menstrual cramping by using the anti-inflammatory properties of cannabis. It seems that there isn’t a tremendous amount of research but that strains high in THC tend to offer the most relief. I should have considered cannabis much sooner. I was aware that the plant is known to help with pain and inflammation. It is believed that the psychoactive properties of THC work to dull the senses. Plus the analgesic properties of the cannabinoids treat the actual pain symptoms. I immediately set up a consultation with a doctor who specializes in qualifying patients for MMJ cards. The process was completed quickly. With my MMJ card, I had access to the variety of medical cannabis sold at the dispensary as well as the knowledge of the budtenders. One of the strains the budtenders recommended was Orange Kush Breath. It has a citrus flavor profile, relaxing effects and is good for uplifting mood and combating stress. It effectively treats cramps and fatigue. Another option is a sativa-dominant hybrid called Medicine Woman. It has wonderfully energizing effects while still providing helpful pain-relieving properties.
