Premenstrual syndrome or PMS is the term for several physical and emotional reactions and conditions that occur in the days leading up to the period. It is thought that the condition results from hormonal imbalances that occur during the period. Premenstrual syndrome may cause the following symptoms in patients: headaches, nausea, fatigue, sleepiness, and inability to concentrate. In addition, women may also experience violent outbursts, extreme mood shifts, and even fits of anger.
Marijuana may help women with premenstrual syndrome deal with the symptoms of the condition. For dealing with the pain and discomfort, marijuana might just be a safer alternative to officially-approved medications.
