So, where do we start?
Being women in our 50s
We’re all familiar with our plight as women. We’ve come a long way, that’s certain. If our grandmothers were alive today, they might say, “You know, you’re lucky” if they ever hear us talk about the state of gender equality, women’s empowerment, and equal pay. But then again, being the wise women they were, they might say, “Go get ‘em, girls!” We know this journey is ongoing; even in our 40s and 50s, we experience stigma in more ways than one.
More than men, women face ageism as they grow older. You won’t hear a young woman saying, “I wish I were 30, 40, or 50, and so on…” Nobody seems to like growing old. It seems the 50s is the official stage when, well, there’s just no stopping it.
Then, you add cannabis into the picture. Some people may end up conjuring images of sad, fearful women in their 50s trying to relive their glory days by smoking a few joints or munching on cannabis brownies. The keywords here are “sad, fearful” – they imply that there’s no fun to be had as we grow older. This is simply not true.
The role of Cannabis in our lives
Physical and/or Mental Pain – it’s a common thing, and something we all desperately want to avoid.
Cannabis not only helps us endure and overcome intense physical and emotional pain, but it has a long history of research that shows it is capable of aiding many different common and chronic ailments. We have spoken to many people who use cannabis to address such things as:
- PTSD symptoms
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Hormone Support
- Pharmaceutical Drug Dependencies
- Illegal Drug Dependencies
- Weight management
- Quitting cigarettes
- The list goes on and on…
Beyond these applications attributed to cannabis, there are also beauty and lifestyle products that we want you to know about and benefit from.
So if you’re a woman just like us, and you’re wondering about the ways by which cannabis can help improve your health, and complement your lifestyle, reach out to us.
We’ve only just begun
Sounds like a song, right?
But it’s true, the 50s is a new beginning, and there’s so much more we can do.
Our goal is to empower women to live their fullest lives. We want to add to the pool of cannabis knowledge that’s meant to educate and inform all women growing through this stage of life.
Most of all, we want you to know that you’re not alone and that maturing into our older years cab be a truly liberating and fun experience! So, don’t be afraid to step in and explore with us.
