The Female : Cannabis Relationship

The Female : Cannabis Relationship

FEB 25, 2014 Michelle Sexton

Women have long kept their health lore confined to their close female communities. Until the late 19th century, birthing was the domain of women and they carried this, as well as other women’s health knowledge, forward. Natural birth control (often herbs) had to keep secret. There is lore that women once segregated themselves at the time of menses, and there in seclusion they found comfort from and companionship with other women.

Before scopolamine and epidurals, ibuprofen and anti-depressants, women likely used Cannabis and many other botanical medicines for pain in labor as well as for a host of other female issues.
