Despite marijuana use, in general, growing in popularity as it has become more socially acceptable over the last several years, women still make up less than half of cannabis product consumers. Though they do tend to purchase more CBD products than their male counterparts thanks to an increased awareness of both health and wellness benefits to be gained with more natural ingredients, they don’t seem to be catching up. This is believed to be due to the lack of knowledge on the various THC and CBD products on the market today that can not only help women, but in many cases, were made especially for them. To help shine a little light on some of the options that are perfect for women, here are five unique items to choose from.

1. THC tampons
THC tampons can help to ease the discomfort that so many women experience during this least anticipated time of the month. The best part is that these are really easy to make yourself at home. You can use cannabutter to coat the outside of a regular tampon before you insert it, or soak a day worth of them in a jar of cannabis-infused oil, and keep it in the bathroom for quick and easy access. Since the THC from THC infused tampons is absorbed through the skin, you will not get high from it, but it will provide a tingly layer of relief that is welcome on the most painful days of your cycle.

2. CBD facial scrub
CBD products are now all the new rage, with some of the most recent revelations about its medicinal aspects, a lot more people are using it for essential self-care items like toothpaste or facial scrub. To make your own CBD infused scrub, all you need is ½ cup of coconut oil, ½ cup of brown sugar and some citrus zest for a nice refreshing pick me up that can help to soothe inflammation and speed up healing of acne and other skin irritations.

3. THC lubricant
You may have heard about weed strains that offer aphrodisiac-like qualities, but THC lubricant takes cannabis in the bedroom to a whole new level. Whether you have issues with dryness, pain, anxiety, or just want to try something new, THC infused lubricant can provide a unique tingly sensation that will keep you and your partner coming back for more. Cannabis infused coconut oil is perfect for this and requires no chemicals or other additives to prepare.

4. THC or CBD beer
Though it might not be a women-only product, THC or CBD infused beer can help to ease sore muscles, melt away anxiety and stress, and heal you from the inside out with an extra kick that alcohol content typically provides. Though these types of cannabis products are not easy to find premade, you can make your own version at home using a few drops (or more) of your favorite infused tincture and adding it to the beer of your preference for a truly personalized experience.

5. CBD or THC edibles
Edibles are now most popularly known for their potency and taste factor, which makes them a perfect option if you are one of the many women who prefer not to smoke but would still like to gain some of the benefits of consuming cannabis products.
