Regardless of age, every woman has menstrual cramps every once in a while and therefore, every woman knows what a pain in the ass they are. So, wouldn’t it be great if you could just smoke one and all the pain would go away? Well, good news – you can. Here are 5 strains for menstrual cramps that will help you go through the most painful moments during that time of the month.
1. White Widow
White Widow is one of the perfect strains for menstrual cramps. Because it’s a balanced Sativa-Indica hybrid it combines the best of both worlds. Meaning, it eases your cramps and it’s also effective when it comes to mood swings and depression related to PMS.
Keep in mind that this strain can be also used to treat migraines and headaches.
2. Solomatic CBD/ACDC
Sometimes getting high just isn’t an option. At those moments, you should reach out for strains with high CBD content. Such strains, for example, are Solomatic CBD, Indica-dominant strain and ACDC, Sativa-dominant strain. Both strains contain such a small amount of THC that have little to no psychoactive effects. But because of the high CBD values, they both relax your body and mind, soothe pain and relieve nausea.
3. Sour Diesel
Another on the list of strains for menstrual cramps is Sour Diesel, Sativa-dominant strain. Like the previous two strains, this one as well can be used to ease cramps during the day time since it has an uplifting, mindful and energizing effect. Also, it will easily help you with the upset stomach and nausea as we already discussed in the article Strains for treating nausea.
4. Purple Urkle
Opposite to Sour Diesel, Purple Urkle is an Indica strain to be used when you just want to chill. Because of its strong body-high, it provides immediate relief from lower back pain and cramps and therefore, eases even the strongest menstrual cramps.
Lastly, Jillybean is a strain that must be on a list as such since it was intentionally created just for the purpose of benefiting female health. It’s a hybrid that gives you an extreme mood boost and in general, reduces the symptoms related to menstruation. It’s also particularly effective for those who have endometriosis.
So, dear women, there’s no need to suffer when the next that time of the month arrives. Just help yourself with one of these strains.
