Cramps. Mood swings. Headaches. Sound familiar? Rather than turning to painkillers, heating pads, and chocolate each month during your menstrual cycle, try a more effective and more natural solution -- cannabis. The potential benefits of cannabis for many disease states and ailments has been widely discussed and researched, but new legislation and broader access to this product is bringing cannabis to a more mainstream audience.
Being stared at by strangers is something I have become very accustomed to. Not because I am a beautiful, ethereal being that catches everyone's attention (but I will take it if that's what you're thinking), but in the way that I am a Black woman, a Black person, and people tend to notice my presence. I don't think there is a Black person out there that can deny knowing what it's like to be stared at by a random person.
