Celebrating Sinsemilla Sisterhood on International Women’s Day

Mar 7, 2024 | Autumn Brands News

We’re women; of course, we love cannabis! As we celebrate International Women’s Day, we’re shouting out to all our sinsemilla sisters shaping the modern cannabis industry and beyond. With two visionary female co-founders leading the charge here at Autumn Brads, our commitment to women’s empowerment transcends mere rhetoric—we walk the walk and talk the talk.

We’re also champions of improving women’s health and wellness through the transformative potential of cannabis. A recent study found more than one-third (37%) of American women aged 21+ consume cannabis. The national survey also uncovered women primarily use cannabis for therapeutic reasons. The top three reasons women use cannabis are to relieve anxiety (60%), help them sleep (58%) and relieve pain (53%).

Additionally, a survey by New Frontier Data shows that 96% of women using cannabis for women’s health concerns found it effective, with 40% reporting it as “very effective.” 

Women have been using cannabis products to deal with various ailments for Millenia. As society’s stigma around our beautiful plant changes, more and more women are turning to cannabis as a natural way to feel their best. 

At Autumn Brands, our conscientiously cultivated cannabis products help women find comfort in the healing power of cannabis. To celebrate International Women’s Day, here are five transformative benefits of cannabis for women’s health and well-being, supported by research and evidence.

Alleviating Menstrual Symptoms

Women often endure the monthly ordeal of menstrual discomfort, but emerging research suggests cannabis may offer relief. A study published in the Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology Canada found that cannabinoids possess anti-inflammatory properties, potentially easing menstrual pain. Our hybrid mini pre-rolls are the perfect lil’ pick me up for taking the edge off.

Mitigating Stress and Anxiety

The burdens of modern life can weigh heavily on women’s shoulders, yet cannabis offers a pathway to tranquility. A review published in the Journal of Affective Disorders highlights the anxiolytic effects of cannabis, promoting relaxation and reducing stress. Our Thrive Elixir is a powerful ally in the battle against anxiety, helping women to reclaim their inner calm.

Improving Sleep Quality

For women grappling with insomnia, cannabis may offer a reprieve. A study in the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine suggests that cannabinoids can modulate sleep patterns, leading to improved sleep quality. Our potent Indica-dominant strains are perfect for promoting restful sleep, providing women with a natural remedy for relaxation.

Managing Pain and Discomfort

Chronic pain plagues many women, but cannabis emerges as a promising alternative to conventional pain management. Research in the European Journal of Pain indicates that cannabinoids possess analgesic properties, relieving various forms of pain. Our rich cannabis-infused Muscle and Joint Salve targets pain at its source, offering women a holistic approach to pain management.

Enhancing Sexual Wellness:

Sexual wellness is integral to women’s overall health, and cannabis may hold the key to unlocking newfound intimacy. A study in the Journal of Sexual Medicine suggests that cannabis can enhance sexual arousal and satisfaction. Our Warrior Elixir makes an excellent lube during intimate moments. It’s made with 100% full spectrum premium cannabis flower grown on our Santa Barbara farm and MCT (coconut) oil. Using Warrior as a lube means the cannabinoids are absorbed via the skin and mucosal membranes instead of the bloodstream, so its effects remain localized. In this instance, THC works as a vasodilator, enlarging blood vessels to enhance blood flow to the downstairs area.
