Women & Weed
Mary Jane shares her views on the subject
It’s true! Wine o’clock has some heavy competition these days… Weed O’Clock! Not that this is surprising to anyone familiar with the recent cannabis industry boom due to legalization, but what does that really mean for women? Has legalization changed how they view pot? How they consume it? What about how society views women who partake?
What are women doing?
More and more women are becoming part of the recent trend towards skipping an end-of-the-day drink in favour of a little THC/CBD to wind down. They are discovering how cannabis can help shut off any negative thoughts leftover from their day and help them relax. Some are discovering how it can even add a boost in the bedroom. When asking women about their experiences with cannabis these days, more often than not they seem to be saying a lot of the same things.
The recurring theme is that for many women, a few hoots or maybe an edible at the end of the day or the week has helped them achieve their Zen moment, a way to de-stress from all the things in their lives demanding the bulk of their attention, to take a moment to focus on themselves.
As an added bonus, they’re finding that pot can make even the most mundane tasks around the house more enjoyable. For example, Mary Jane recommends a SHRED’EMS POP! – Root Beer Blast Gummies, a great tasting edible that can help make for a fun laundry time experience, or invigorate any other boring chore around the house. Others prefer the subtle effects of the Delta 9 Harmony 510 vape cart for relaxing with a book or a game, or as an especially helpful aid to sleep. Another option women are talking about is CBD creams and patches, which are starting to become an essential tool in helping cope with the more physical pains of womanhood. More and more women are using cannabis these days and sharing their experiences, and while they’re not quite ready to shout from the rooftops, their voices are getting louder.
