With five states – Missouri, North Dakota, South Dakota, Arkansas and Maryland – voting on recreational use in November, it’s no surprise that a majority of women in the U.S. say they’re cannabis-curious.

According to a new survey commissioned by Blissiva, makers of doctor-formulated, cannabis-infused products designed for women, 62% of women in the U.S. say they are interested in learning about the health benefits of using cannabis — and more likely to do so if it’s recommended by a doctor.

According to the survey:

  • Millennial women (74%) are the most likely to be canna-curiosity, followed by 62% of Gen X women, 61% of Gen Z and 52% of women baby boomers.
  • More than half of women (52%) are interested in cannabis as a solution to anxiety and mental health issues.
  • Just over half (55%) of women are interested in using cannabis to provide relief from aches and pains.
  • Half of all women (50%) are interested in using cannabis to relax. Younger generations are even more open to choosing cannabis: three in five Gen Z women (59%) and millennial women (61%) reported they were open to cannabis instead of a glass of wine or alcoholic beverage when they want to unwind.
  • Three in five (60%) women say they are comfortable talking to their doctor about cannabis.

Blissiva, founded by Gina Dubbé and OB-GYN Dr. Leslie Apgar,  specializes in cannabis products specifically formulated for the female body. The company’s tagline “Gyno-Created, Goddess-Approved” is a nod to the founders and their belief in the medical benefits of cannabis. Yet, the survey conducted this month among 1,012 women, found only 1 in 3 Gen X women are interested in cannabis as a solution for perimenopause and menopause symptoms.

“Many women don’t realize is cannabis can be very effective at treating these and other menopause symptoms,” said Dr. Apgar. “Cannabis is calorie-free, can reduce anxiety and help you achieve more restful sleep which is associated with cellular repair, immune function, growth and recovery.”

Dr. Apgar empowers women to speak to a medical professional about alternative treatments when traditional methods aren’t helping. However, she warns that not all medical professionals have extensive knowledge of cannabis. “Don’t be discouraged if you need to talk to more than one doctor to get the support you need,” says Dr. Apgar.
