Whilst many people have long known about the therapeutic effects of medical cannabis, scientific studies have recently confirmed that medical cannabis can be an effective treatment for a wide variety of conditions and symptoms.  Unlike most prescription medications, medical cannabis can have therapeutic effects on both the mind and body in relatively small amounts, without the side-effects often associated with traditional prescription and over-the-counter medications.  Whether you are looking for a natural, alternative treatment or a complementary treatment to western medicine, medical cannabis is the natural choice for total wellness and health.

Women may be from Venus and men from Mars, but that is not where the difference between the sexes ends.  Our bodies are different and as such, women experience a myriad of conditions, symptoms and illnesses that are unique.  The good news is that medical cannabis does not distinguish between the sexes, but it can offer much needed relief to women for gender specific conditions.

Medical Cannabis Can Be Used For a Variety of Conditions:

ADHD /ADD Depression Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME)
ALS Diabetes Migraines
Alzheimer’s Endometriosis Multiple Sclerosis
Anxiety Epilepsy Osteoporosis
Arthritis Fibromyalgia Pain
Asthma Gastrointestinal Parkinson’s
Autism Glaucoma PTSD
Autoimmune Health Schizophrenia
Cancer Heart Disease Skin Conditions
Cerebral Palsy HIV/AIDS Sleep
COPD Huntington’s Stress
Dementia  Lupus  Ulcerative Colitis/IBS/IBD

Women have been turning to medical marijuana for relief from symptoms associated with PMS, Endometriosis, Menopause as well as Breast Cancer and the side-effects of radiation and chemotherapy.  With specially formulated products, our female clients have a safe, natural alternative, rich in the appropriate cannabinoids, like CBD, THC, THCA, and CBN.

For optimum absorption, CannaMedica’s products are suspended in MCT oil. At CannaMedica we embrace the synergy of ancient wisdom and modern science, to provide the most comprehensive relief for women – from moderate to severe pain and the associated symptoms of female specific conditions.

We strongly believe that women deserve a better, safer option that is a natural replacement or complementary aid, to prescription medication and the harsh side-effects that can accompany certain prescription medications.  In addition to the healing properties of medical cannabis, cannabinoids such as CBD also offer the benefit of being a health supplement, and an aid to combat the stresses of modern living.
