Marijuana can get women more stoned than their male counterparts, according to the latest research funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse. The study, which was published in the journal Drug and Alcohol Dependence, finds that the estrogen levels displayed in the female persuasion makes them more sensitive to the effects of CANNABIS, specifically the herb’s psychoactive compound THC.
Researchers from Washington State University, the academic force commissioned to conduct this federal cannabis exploration, discovered that females were no less than 30% more susceptible to the pain-relieving qualities of marijuana than men. These results, of course, have pot-hating federal officials concerned that stoner chicks all across America are more prone to having a bad trip, including high anxiety, panic attacks and paranoia.
Research was also conducted on female rats. Why?, you may ask. The answer is because rats have a menstrual cycle just like humans do and have high fluctuation of hormone levels around this time. The research found that female rats who were given THC for pain relief during this time, after ten days, need more THC than their male counterparts. Thus, building up a tolerance much quicker.
Seems like the struggle is real for all those STICKY ICKY loving ladies out there.
