At one point in time, it was rare that you would see any visual of a woman using cannabis. However, the stereotypical image of a cannabis user has evolved and no longer has just one face. From Whoopi’s line of menstrual relief products to the glamorous AnnaBis bags to hide your stash, women can enjoy pot now more than ever. Here are ten reasons why the ladies love weed.
1. Weed is universal
You don’t just see men smoking weed these days. In fact, the cannabis industry is practically dominated by women. Indeed, the “stoner” stereotype that once pictured a dude with a Grateful Dead shirt has all but vanished. Men smoke weed… women smoke weed… everyone smokes weed!
2. Cannabis conquers PMS
Ladies, you all know the struggle of PMS. Well, thankfully cannabis can relieve it. From the killer headaches to the painful cramps, marijuana has our back. Shoutout to Whoopi Goldberg for saving us all!
3. Creates tighter bonds
Smoking weed with your girlfriends gives you all something to bond over. Likewise, it creates lots of laughs and interesting conversation. Not to mention, it’s always fun to pig out together when the munchies strike.
4. Sparks creativity
Some of the world’s most creative people throughout the ages have included weed in their life. For example, Susan Sarandon is a cannabis lover and just so happens to be a talented actress. Likewise, Charlize Theron, Roseanne, and Sarah Silverman favor the herb.
5. Time is more cherished
Balancing our lives, as well as finding alone time, can be a challenge. However, cannabis can help us cherish the few minutes we do get. There is no sweeter relief than disconnecting from the world for a bit to enjoy some bud. And if you’re a busy lady like myself, you know how important solitude can be.
6. Helps you appreciate your place in life
7. Improves your love life
Not only does weed help you bond with friends, but also with your lover. Sharing some herb with your significant other can bring the two of your closer together by creating a mutual interest. Not to mention, it enhances your sex life, which is always a plus.
8. Gives you energy
Regardless of what you’ve heard, weed doesn’t make you lazy. In fact, many strains give you energy. From Super Silver Haze to Jack Herer, cannabis can keep you moving. We all know what that morning cup of coffee can do to our stomachs, so why not avoid the potential trip to the bathroom?
9. Allows you to test your limits
10. Provides a different perspective
Us women are known for overthinking from time to time. However, a toke is all we need to snap out of it and see the glass half full. Equally important, weed can come in handy when you’re having a heated argument. Just pick up the bowl, smoke, and save that argument for later.
