If there’s one thing we’ve learned about the women in San Diego it’s that they love their weed. On average, Urbn Leaf sees around 1,000+ customers a day, of which 450-500 are female. In honor of International Women’s Day, we’ve put together a list of the four most common ailments our female customers are experiencing and our top 10 products to combat them.
Bloating, cramps, migraines, hot flashes, back pain, mood swings, and fatigue – Every woman deals with it at one point in their lives, so it’s no surprise the women leading the cannabis industry have developed products dedicated to relieving the symptoms of “Aunt Flow.”
For instance, Foria Relief is a vaginal suppository crafted to maximize the muscle relaxing and pain-relieving properties of cannabis without a psychotropic (“high”) effect. Each serving contains a specially formulated blend of THC and CBD, cannabinoids which are known to relax muscles and release tension and cramping in the body. Through the use of a suppository these antispasmodic and pain-relieving properties go directly to the area in need of relief.

Women are twice as likely to suffer from generalized anxiety disorder than men, according to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America. Many factors can play into marijuana’s effect on anxiety – strain genetics, tolerance, and environmental factors to name a few can all contribute to how you will feel after sparking one up.
Cannabis contains over 100 different cannabinoids, aka compounds that interact with the body’s own endocannabinoid system. The two most commonly known are tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD).
THC activates CB1 and CB2 receptors plus produces psychoactive effects which can relieve anxiety for some, but for others it might actually intensify the anxious feeling.
CBD on the other hand does not have psychoactive properties and has been known to counteract anxiety inducing effects. CBD tinctures are a great way to test out the waters and fight off anxiety before moving onto smoking flower.
Once again women are twice as likely to suffer from depression than men, so it’s no surprise ladies have been lighting up to lift their moods. A nice sativa can help snap anyone right out of that funk and get those creative juices flowing.
A great option for those who can’t smoke is Lavender Chamomile lotion from Tree Lotion 420. Ladies at Urbn Leaf love the lavender and chamomile as it helps eliminate nervous tension and relieves pain.
