The lady stoner has been enjoying a cultural moment of late.
Rihanna extolled the virtues of ganja on Instagram. Abbi and Ilana devised inventive marijuana storage methods on Broad City. Women are louder and prouder about their weed-smoking habits than ever, even though getting stoned has been dubbed a traditionally male pursuit. But while popular culture might make you think it's never been cooler to smoke weed while having a vagina, there's still a huge stoner gender gap. According to a National Survey on Drug Use, almost twice as many men smoke weed than women, even though there are legitimate health benefits for women who partake in the occasional or more than occasional toke.
So ladies, crank up the Sublime because here are nine reasons why you should be smoking more weed. Having a menstrual cycle is one of the best parts of being a woman, if you enjoy feeling like someone is grabbing your uterus and slowly and methodically wringing it like a wet dish towel. Fortunately, there's a more natural alternative to Midol for alleviating horrific period cramps: Tetrahydrocannibol THCthe main compound in marijuana, has been found to alleviate nauseabloating and headaches, all symptoms associated with premenstrual pain.
It helps a ton with the crazy cramps and headaches I get since I've been off the pill. According to data from the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, women are twice as likely to suffer from generalized anxiety disorder as men.
So it makes sense that women would be self-medicating to treat their anxiety by smoking weed. In fact, a study in Trends in Pharmalogical Sciences showed that the most common self-reported reason for using cannabis is "rooted in its ability to reduce feelings of stress, tension, and anxiety. While there's no hard data as to whether more women than men are smoking weed to manage anxiety, Leah, 29, says she started smoking weed precisely for that reason: "It's the only way I can turn my brain off, stop worrying and just relax for a little while," she told Mic. If you've taken a few hits on your bong and woken up hours later having passed out in front of Telemundo, you know that weed has soporific qualities, to say the least.
And there's one added benefit: "Also, it fucks me up. Forget cotton vaginathe oft-reported and subsequently debunked side effect for smoking weed that went viral earlier this year. Extensive research shows that smoking weed can have an aphrodisiac effect for many women by reducing inhibitions and even increasing the strength of orgasm. The release of the cannabis-infused lube Foria last year seems to support the theory that cannabis just plain makes people horny. As Alexandra put it: "Who doesn't like smoking a blunt and getting head?
Sex therapist Ian Kerner says the reported aphrodisiac effects of smoking pot before sex likely have a lot to do with the fact that marijuana decreases anxiety and lowers inhibitions, causing women to let their guards down during sex. As for marijuana increasing the strength of orgasm, Kerner says there's some scientific basis for this claim.
Leah says weed doesn't only improve the quality of her sex life, it increases her libido as well. After she went on hormonal birth control years ago, her sex drive totally disappeared, causing tension between her and her boyfriend. That changed, however, when she started regularly smoking marijuana. According to a study from Washington State University that examined the effects of marijuana on female versus male rats, women are much more sensitive to the effects of THC than men, particularly while they're ovulating.
This is both a good thing and a bad thing.
For instance, the fact that women might be more sensitive to pot doesn't necessarily bode well for those who already prone to developing negative side effects, such as anxiety or paranoia. But if you're a fan of the ganj, there's one obvious plus: If it takes less weed for you to get stoned, then it's probably cheaper as well. Some studies have suggested that people who smoke a lot of weed are at increased risk for developing lung cancer. But when it comes to breast cancer, a study from Molecular Oncology suggested that the opposite might be true: Any ladies want to get stoned to the study, cannabinoidsor the compounds found in the cannabis plant, can slow the growth of breast cancer cells, preventing the spread of breast cancer cells throughout the body.
In fact, the rate of obesity among people who smoke pot at least a few times a week is roughly a one-third lower than among those who've never smoked pot at all, suggesting that while it's probably not an awesome idea to swap out your diet plan for Purple Haze, it might not be a bad idea to take a few tokes before bed if you're trying to lose weight. The jury's still out as to whether or not it's kosher to take a toke while you're preggo. While one study suggests that smoking pot while pregnant increases the risk of the fetus developing cognitive impairment, there's not enough evidence to determine whether or not that's true.
That said, there's some first-person anecdotal evidence from moms suggesting that smoking weed can help relieve morning sickness. In fact, one study of young mothers in Jamaica reported that while smoking while pregnant is widely discouraged, many mothers do partake in the ganj on occasion, claiming that it helped manage their nausea and stress.
With all the social and cultural pressures women face balancing their " work selves" with their "life mes ," it's often difficult for us to take a few minutes out of our busy schedules to just chill the eff out. The rise of the lady stoner probably has a lot to do with a desire to do what dudes in Judd Apatow movies have been doing for years: ignoring our responsibilities and taking a break from the harsh pressures of reality for a few minutes a day.
