Why Women Are the Biggest CBD Users?
A common question people ask CBD experts is, “who is using CBD the most?” and the answer is women! As CBD continues to hit the mainstream by storm, studies have shown that about 55% of CBD users are women.
But why are women using it more? Women have more reason to! With things like menstrual cycles and added stress women are typically the ones reaching for something that could help relieve some of life’s daily burdens. Women also tend to reach more for CBD than for the psychoactive cannabinoid, THC. This is because they’re looking for the relief of cannabis without any psychoactive effects that come when consuming THC.
Women tend to use CBD for things such as sleep problems, menstrual cramping, etc. but the most common ailment women are looking to relieve is anxiety. Women tend to experience anxiety in a more physical sense than men, that is why women are typically looking for some sort of relief because the experience is more physical than mental. This means that while some people may have a lot of emotions around stress and anxiety, most women tend to experience things like headaches, stomach problems, insomnia, jitters, etc. when having anxious feelings. For this reason, women also tend to use THC less frequently when compared to men. This is because THC has psychoactive effects that can exacerbate anxious or paranoid feelings which is a big no-no for anyone experiencing already anxious thoughts or feelings.
