Website Transition In Progress - Please Excuse the Construction
by Dr. Daniel J. Heller
We’ve written before about using weed—marijuana—to relieve PMS and PMDD symptoms. You can find the previous blog post here. It’s one of our most commented on posts, at least in part because—like much of our site, which provides the most comprehensive resource on PMDD and PMS on the web—it’s one of the few on the web on the subject of cannabis and PMS or PMDD. But many of the comments that have rolled in have told us something like “You don’t know what you’re talking about, pot works great for my premenstrual symptoms.”
So let us soften our previous message on this subject by pointing out:
To briefly restate what we said in the previous post on this subject:
Attitudes towards marijuana are changing rapidly, so we’re posting on the subject again. After all the responses we’ve received, we feel it’s important to clarify our position on this controversial subject. Just as attitudes towards marijuana are changing, laws are changing, and even the president of the United States said in a published interview that pot is not quite as bad as it’s been cracked up to be.
If you can use marijuana judiciously, without descending into abuse, overuse, or dependency, and it helps you, we’re happy that you’ve found an effective, natural, albeit temporary solution to your symptoms. We don’t have a judgement about it, and we are all for women taking charge of their own health. We continue to dispute, however, the mistaken notion that marijuana is the only alternative to prescription drugs, and that it treats the cause of the problem. We are biased, but feel our products, and our website, are a superior solution for women looking to balance their hormones and their moods, naturally.
