Medical marijuana may be able to help treat the pain and cramps associated with PMS due to its anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. The cannabinoids CBD functions as a non-additive and non-psychoactive pain reliever. THC, on the other hand, is known to have twenty times the anti-inflammatory properties of aspirin, according to a study published in the US National Library of Science in 2008. That said, THC has the potential to exacerbate anxiety, which is another symptom of PMS. Because of that, it is best to consume whole plant cannabis, where CBD can buffer against the psychoactive effects of THC so that patients can enjoy the relief of provided by both cannabinoids.
