The Women’s Cannabis Project ( is one of our projects that advocates for female orgasm difficulty/disorder (FOD) becoming a condition of treatment for medical cannabis in US states and countries world-wide.

Research over the last 50 years confirms that cannabis helps women orgasm and helps women orgasm who have FOD.1-11 Female orgasm difficulty is a serious public health problem,12 affecting up to 41% of women world-wide,13 an unchanged statistic for 50 years,14 negatively affecting women’s mental health,15-17 physical health,18,19 and quality of life.12 We invite you to stay connected and join the efforts for medical cannabis to become a condition of treatment for FOD by clicking here.
