Women and Cannabis - Medicine, Science, and Sociology (Journal of Cannabis Therapeutics)

Not only has medical research been historically remiss in addressing both women's issues and possible therapeutic benefits of cannabis, many of the conditions popularly treated with the herb are gender specific and female predominant. Among them are dysmenorrhea, migraine, fibromyalgia, and a variety of autoimmune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis. The 12 articles contribute to redressing the neglect. They are also published as Journal of Cannabis Therapeutics v. 2, no. 3/4.

This first-of-its-kind book examines the therapeutic role of medical marijuana in women's medicine and its implications for fertility and maternal/child health. It includes treatises on many gender-specific conditions in obstetrics and gynecology as well as female-predominant medical conditions that are popularly treated with cannabis, such as multiple sclerosis and hypermesis gravidarum, a debilitating ailment characterized by severe nausea and vomiting, malnutrition, and weight loss during pregnancy.
