While a proper mix of THC and CBD might be most effective for menopausal issues, CBD alone has been documented as being effective for treating menopausal sleep and mood problems, without exerting the intoxicating effects of THC.
The University of Washington School of Medicine in Seattle recently initiated a study called “The Moms + Marijuana Study”. For the first time, researchers are trying to assess whether using cannabis to alleviate prenatal nausea is safe for a baby’s development. The results, which will comprise images of the developing foetus brain, might change the way cannabis is perceived within the medical community.
Today, we have a solid body of evidence on the pain-relieving  properties of cannabis, both from clinical studies and patient experience. Research also confirms the anti-inflammatory  effects of cannabis derivatives, which can contribute to lowering pain. A growing number of women today use various forms of cannabis to address painful symptoms like uterine inflammation and other issues related to menstruation.
A study found  that 68.5% of women who used marijuana before sex had a more pleasurable experience. In most cases, women who use small amounts of cannabis experience an increase in sex drive, while higher doses of THC are reported to exert a negative effect. The positive effect of cannabis on anxiety can reflect on one’s sexual life too, as well as potentially increase physical sensitivity. Though using cannabis during sex has always been popular, research has not provided clear evidence on exactly how the sexual experience is enhanced. And it isn’t an easy task.
Unfortunately, studies show that women develop a tolerance to cannabis faster than men, and are more adversely affected by the eventual symptoms of withdrawal. It also seems that the area of the brain that controls “spatial memory” is more affected by cannabis consumption among women than in men. But beside this fact, just like any substance, cannabis has mild side effects and might not work for everyone.
Anyhow, healthcare start-ups involved in the legal cannabis business have been developing products with cannabinoids aimed at boosting sex-life. These contain THC, CBD, or a combination of both, and they come in the form of lubes, creams, relief oils, suppositories, and, of course, a lot of sweet aphrodisiac edibles. User reports are largely positive, particularly when it comes to reducing pain during or after sex.
The ECS also plays a role in female hormonal balance and reproductive processes. Cannabis-derived cannabinoids are able to interact with our body’s cannabinoid receptors, and this is where all the magic happens.
Cannabis is regulated in the province of BC. You must be 19 or over to purchase, possess or use cannabis or cannabis products for non-medical purposes in BC. It is illegal to sell or give cannabis to people under 19. People under 19 may not legally possess cannabis unless authorized to use it for medical purposes by their health care practitioner. Access to medical cannabis is regulated under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR). Under the ACMPR, Canadians (including those under 19) who have been authorized by their health care practitioner to access cannabis for medical purposes are able to purchase safe, quality-controlled cannabis from one of the producers licensed by Health Canada, produce a limited amount of cannabis for their own medical purposes, or designate someone to produce it for them.
You and your child
Taking a motivational approach is less about pressuring your child to change their cannabis use and more about supporting their internal reflection on their possible need and ability to change. It means steering a conversation toward possibility and action. And it is light in spirit and tone because it involves imagining success in the future.
As noted earlier in this guide, young people use cannabis because they see benefit in doing so. They use cannabis to feel good, feel better, do better or explore. Entering into dialogue with your child about the benefits they receive from using cannabis will assist you to gather information and develop a mutual understanding that will help you make a good decision together about cannabis. In this process you may also discover your child has mental or physical health issues which may need to be addressed. Discussing your and your child’s concerns in the context of an open, caring and respectful relationship makes space for further dialogue on cannabis, and other issues that arise in the future.

Question: The seed packets sold in stores are dated. Do the seeds really "expire" after the date?
Cover the seed tray. I used a scrap piece of thin plywood which worked nicely.
You can sow seeds in a proper seed tray bought from a store. Alternatively, you can make do with a cookie tin, flower pot, empty food container, or something like that. If there are no holes in the bottom of the container, make some with a 1/4 inch drill bit or a nail. Space the holes a few inches apart. This allows water to drain from the container and prevents it from collecting, which would make the seed compost overly wet.
Seeds are dormant. This means that they do nothing and, in effect, are "asleep" as long as they are kept in a cool, dry place. Some seeds have a "best before date" in the sense that they will eventually deteriorate over time. However, some seeds can be stored for decades before they grow. In fact, the oldest known seed that was successfully germinated was from a date palm estimated to be 2000 years old. This was successfully grown in 2005.
Seeds sprout best at a temperature above 64F (18C). In the northern hemisphere, it's best to sow seeds in early spring around February or March so the plants can have a full growing season. If you live in a climate with cold winters, it may be too cool for germination, so you can place the tray in a plant propagator (or alternatively locate it in a hot press close to a hot water tank or near your furnace/boiler).

Plants can be hardened off by placing them in a wind- and sun-shaded spot outside, exposing them to these conditions for an hour a day, then taking them back inside at night. Extend the time gradually by an hour a day so that they become accustomed to lower temperatures. Start hardening off half-hardy annuals (e.g. marigolds, petunias, asters) shortly before the last frosts so plants are ready to plant out.
