Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) is a condition that can produce cramping, irritation, nausea, pain, mood swings, depression and anxiety in women each month around their menstruation cycle. It is now suggested cannabis may offer a valuable treatment option for symptoms of PMS. The THC and CBD found in cannabis can relieve the pain and inflammation, which can produce cramping, bloating, and other painful symptoms. Cannabis is also thought to stabilize mood which can help reduce anxiety and depression. Cannabis also provides nausea relief, something that can also have beneficial effects on mood.
