Are you ready to dive into the research behind cannabis? Well good because in this episode of High On Self-Care I have an awesome chat with Gina Dubbé and Dr. Leslie Apgar, the founders of Greenhouse Wellness in Maryland and Blissiva, a female-focused cannabis line.
In This Episode, You’ll Learn:
- Their awesome story of taking the cannabis industry by storm and going against the grain to create a brand for women in a male dominated space.
- Real research and science about cannabis that goes against all of the stigmas we’ve been taught including how they actually consider cannabis ‘an exit drug’
- How 1 amazing plant can help so many people with so many different ailments including insomnia, pain relief, mood elevation and more.
- Stories from their actual patients about how cannabis saved their lives
- The endocannabinoid system that we all have in our body and how cannabis works with it to create balance
- Specific ways cannabis helps women with reproductive issues
- The research behind why cannabis & sex are an amazing combo!
- We should be taking CBD/Cannabis every day like a supplement and after a couple weeks there will be subtle impacts that you’ll hardly notice and will greatly improve your body/mood.
- As women, we have a high concentration of cannabinoids in our reproductive systems so cannabis can help with things like PMS, pelvic pain, painful periods, painful sex, endometriosis, and more! – Dr. Leslie Apgar says we can use it for EVERYTHING!
- Cannabis & Sex are a great combo! A study shows that less is more with THC and Sex. Too much THC may take away from your experience.
- In this male dominated industry, or any male-dominated industry, women have to push back and follow our own voices to make a big impact. So push back ladies!
- Cannabis more so deters people from other drugs and Gina Dubbé refers to it as “an exit drug” -> there’s your rebuttal to the gateway drug conversation.
