Specific Issues for Marijuana and Women



Yin and Blood

If a woman takes marijuana repeatedly over time without doing anything to balance it, marijuana’s heat and spice can slowly dry up her Yin and blood.



Marijuana and Aging

A woman will want to keep her Yin and blood as strong and fresh as possible for her entire life. As she ages, these substances can begin to wither unless she takes specific steps to really care for herself.



Marijuana and Girls

A girl’s body is preparing itself to begin making the Yin and blood that she will later cycle through her body in her menstruation.

The heat and spice of marijuana may harm her growth by speeding it up and overextending it.



Marijuana, Girls and Adolescence

This is a time when a girl is perfecting the hormonal factory that will serve her for her entire life. Marijuana can influence the development of her hormones.



Marijuana and Menstruation

This is when a woman’s body needs its blood and fluids to cleanse and rejuvenate. Marijuana can alter her hormonal clock, heat up her blood to make her flow more erratic, and dry out her mucous membranes.



Marijuana and Adult Women

Marijuana can stimulate her into over-activity and dry her out at the same time. Among many other things, this can lead to an inability to orgasm if her Yin can no longer embrace her yang.



Marijuana, Women and Relationships

Marijuana often tests relationship to its limits.

If a woman’s partner is also into marijuana, then the relationship is probably just about getting high. If the partner isn’t into it, it’s very likely only a matter of time before she’ll have to make a choice between marijuana and her partner.



Getting Butch

Marijuana can masculinize a woman over time.

If health and longevity are goals for a woman, then she’ll want to keep her Jing polarized as deeply in the feminine as she can for as long as she can. Unbalanced marijuana can take her in the opposite direction.



Marijuana and Menopause

A woman’s Yin and blood often begin to get compromised at this time. She’ll want to create an abundance of Yin and blood that will support her healthy body for the rest of her life.

Taking unbalanced marijuana at this time will not serve this cause.



Marijuana and the Crone

After menopause, marijuana’s effect on a woman’s brain and Jing may or may not be helpful. Some research indicates that responsible use of marijuana may delay the onset of diseases such as Alzheimer’s and inhibit certain kinds of tumors.



Stay in Balance

If a woman chooses to use marijuana at any stage of life, there are ways that she can balance its effects to maximize its positive qualities and diminish the harmful ones...
