Cannabis Use, a Self-Management Strategy Among Australian Women With Endometriosis: Results From a National Online Survey.

Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology Canada  Home“This study sought to determine the prevalence, tolerability, and self-reported effectiveness of cannabis in women with endometriosis.

A total of 484 responses were included for analysis, with 76% of the women reporting the use of general self-management strategies within the last 6 months. Of those using self-management, 13% reported using cannabis for symptom management. Self-reported effectiveness in pain reduction was high (7.6 of 10), with 56% also able to reduce pharmaceutical medications by at least half. Women reported the greatest improvements in sleep and in nausea and vomiting. Adverse effects were infrequent (10%) and minor.

Women report good efficacy of cannabis in reducing pain and other symptoms, with few adverse effects reported.”
