Cannabis as a safer alternative to sleep-aids and painkillers.

Women play a critical role when it comes to the health and well-being of their families. They are involved in the vast majority of the decisions regarding their family’s nutrition, activities, medical needs, and more. But what about their own health and wellness requirements? Often, in the process of prioritizing others, women end up neglecting their own well-being. This has led to a number of women suffering from stress, pain, and a lack of sleep.

Today, the most common remedies for women experiencing a lack of sleep or pain are pain-killers or sleeping pills. While those medications might bring temporary relief, there have been many reports of severe side effects. For example, sleeping pills might cause sleepwalking, which of course has its own dangers. Besides side-effects, pain-killers and sleep-aids can also have unfavorable long-term health effects.

“Women make 95% of the wellness decisions for their families. However, if you don’t tend to your their own health and wellness needs first, you won’t be able to look after your family the way you want to.” – Diane Forster (34:04 – 34:21)

A search for safer alternatives has led medical scientists to study the potential benefits of cannabis, especially THC and CBD. Today, these products are revolutionizing how women take care of themselves and their families. Cannabis still has some social stigma, but research suggests that it can help women reduce pain, anxiety, and improve sleep quality. With new evidence, THC and CBD are slowly but surely becoming mainstream and assisting countless people improve their lives.

How cannabis works to improve sleep and reduce stress.

While we are becoming more aware of the health benefits of cannabis, something many people don’t know is that the human body produces its own cannabinoids, which are cannabis-like chemicals. The natural cannabinoids produced by the human body is a part of our endocannabinoid system, which is responsible for regulating various functions like sleep, mood, appetite, inflammation, and more.

Cannabis products work with the human endocannabinoid system to reduce inflammation, elevate mood, and reduce stress, among other benefits. Many women have experienced dramatic benefits from cannabis, especially in managing pain and improving sleep.
