PMS & MEDICAL MARIJUANA
Premenstrual Syndrome – PMS
“I have a daughter and two granddaughters who inherited my horrific menstrual cramps…and we all found relief with Marijuana.” Whoopi Goldberg
PMS frustrates and tortures most American women at some point, if not every lunar cycle.
In the epidemic that is PMS, 75% of menstrual American women experience the following symptoms.
- Crazy moods, irritability, depression, distraction
- Tender breasts
- Food cravings
- Headache, nausea
Paranormal Management Society
It is well documented that hormonal swings profoundly affect behavior and mood. Certain hormonal dispositions turn woman’s intuition upside down, triggering unwanted, deviant emotions of anger, confusion and depression. Researchers found low serotonin levels in some PMS sufferers. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that contributes to feelings of well-being and happiness.
“PMS? You’re damned right I have PMS! It stands for Pass My Shotgun, which means you’d better sleep with one eye open, buster.” – Author: Jane Graves
Medical Marijuana Affects Receptors that Regulate Pain and Emotion
Researchers have found that Cannabinoids, the active ingredients of Medical Marijuana can increase serotonin levels. For people that don’t like to get high, there are new non-psychoactive MMJ products that contain a potent ingredient called Cannabidiol (CBD). CBD has been shown to act on the same receptors that release serotonin. This explains in part, why many patients feel much calmer and happier after taking MMJ medication.
Note: It is important to know that the dose amount is very important, taking too much psychoactive (high in THC) MMJ can make some symptoms, like anxiety worse. Very low doses, even 1 mg of THC or so have been found to work wonders with no psychoactive effects at all.

TESTIMONIALS: How Medical Cannabis helps Treat PMS
“Cannabis Oil is a truly miraculous compound. It can provide relief from severe depression, exhaustion, fibromyalgia, PMS, MS and severe pain, anywhere in the body or mind – wherever there is inflammation.” – Dr. Garland
“Women may have begun using the drug to treat cramps as early as the 9th century. A translation of an Arab text from that time says that women used the juice of cannabis seeds to “treat migraine, calm uterine pains, and prevent miscarriage.” – 2008 Historical Review of Cannabis treatments in obstetrics and gynecology
“The gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) in hemp seeds produces prostaglandin E1, which reduces the effects of the hormone prolactin. Prolactin is thought to play a role in the physical and emotional symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS). GLA in hemp seeds may also help reduce the symptoms of menopause.” – Dr. Mercola
“I used CBD Oil once, and my cramps were completely gone, almost immediately.” – Won’t say
