Cannabis use has been shown to have a positive effect on aspects of female sexual function, including libido and orgasm. It can also help manage menopause symptoms, mood disorders, chronic pain, and other health problems that affect women or individuals with a uterus. In recognition of Women’s Health Month, D4DPR (formerly DFCR) and Marijuana Matters brought together a stellar group of cannabis and women’s health experts to lead a discussion on how cannabinoid therapy can be a safe and effective treatment for women’s health issues. This panel was designed for cannabis patients, providers, and anyone interested in learning more about the components of cannabis and why it’s being hailed as a wellness revolution, as well as discussing its potential risks.
