How does weed affect during your periods?

Updated: Apr 28, 2020

Diana-Ashley Krach - I rely on cannabis a lot more during my period. I slather on every subject I can find to relieve muscle cramps and double the ingestible methods to improve my mood. Often, I can consume a whole pre-roll to myself, and I can scarcely sense anything apart from the dullness of the unbearable pain. While cannabis works much better than any drug prescribed for pain and other symptoms, my tolerance always seems to be much higher during my cycle. For a long time, I assumed it was that I have endometriosis (a condition in which the tissue lining of the uterus expands outward and sticks to other organs) and that may trigger extremely uncomfortable periods. I've also required some pain medication and better solutions to treat my anxiety, two symptoms that become far more severe during my period. I have just lately become conscious that the explanation behind this is because the levels of anandamide, an endocannabinoid that helps improve pleasure and relieve tension, differ considerably during the menstruation cycle.

I have found that estrogen rates are directly correlated with cannabinoid resistance and are lowest during menstruation. When these levels are larger, the body breaks down the psychoactive cannabis compound (THC), making it more potent, which ensures that less is required. Each individual is unique, so although some will need to use more, that is not the case across the board. Every cannabis-friendly women will agree that they need more weed prior and just after the menstrual period to relieve their pain. Multiple women may need to use cannabis moderately to relieve their symptoms during this period.

Some people can have negative impacts during menstruation when they consume weed. For others, anxiety effects are intensified by THC-dominant drugs and other mood imbalances may influence the outcome of marijuana consumption. If this is the case, then you should stop the use of THC and focus on the products that dominate CBD. CBD can mimic estrogen when it blocks Fatty Acid Amide Hydrolase (FAAH), an enzyme that disintegrates anandamide. Therefore, incorporating CBD or increasing the CBD intake can better counter mood swings and other side effects if you are prone to cannabis/THC during the period.
