“I don’t know how to do this. My husband/boyfriend is the one that usually buys this stuff.”

It’s surprising (or maybe not) how many times I’ve heard this phrase being behind the counter. Even though purchasing recreational cannabis has been around and thriving since 2014, why is it that so many women still feel uncomfortable buying their own weed?

As a female budtender, I can see why women are still nervous to walk into a dispensary and make a purchase. Many dispensaries are dingy, dark, and pretty intimidating. Usually (but not always), there’s an all-guy staff behind the counter, which makes it hard for any woman to feel comfortable discussing their cannabis options. (Talking about how much you need to smoke due to your period can turn into an awkward conversation on both ends).

Bottom line – women should not be embarrassed about using cannabis, no matter what the reason.

Here are three common reasons why women should use weed!


Stress Relief

Whether it’s a jam-packed morning at the office or an afternoon filled with playdates at the park, life can be exhausting. Lighting up a J after a long day is a great way to relieve yourself of life’s everyday stresses. In fact, using THC for stress relief is the most common reason people smoke!

Maybe smoking a joint isn’t your cup of tea. How does a nice bubble bath sound? Sooth your body & soul with THC-infused Bath Soak. Your muscles & your mind are going to love this relaxing combination of essential oils, Epsom salt, and cannabis.

Sex Life

PMS & Period Relief

I know I’m not alone when I say this – Cramps SUCK. All I want to do on my period is eat chocolate, lay in bed, and watch Netflix. But reality sets in after my alarm goes off and work awaits.

Good news! One of the cannabinoids in weed – CBD – is like a natural midol. Depending on which way you intake it, it can relieve your pain in as little as 10 minutes! High CBD edibles & patches are good for all-day relief. There’s even CBD-infused suppositories to help with menstrual pain!
