Women and Weed


The Pacific Southwest Addiction and Prevention Technology Transfer Centers are pleased to present a 60-minute webinar entitled Women and Weed. This webinar will outline the rapidly changing culture of cannabis use highlighting potency and routes of administration, perception of risk, and common exchanges regarding substance use and women’s issues. It will share popular products marketed to women and campaigns targeted to individuals who identify as female. It will review public health concerns including child protective services, health concerns of use during pregnancy and breastfeeding, as well as the influence on self and family and how to have an intelligent “cannabis conversation.”


By the end of this presentation, participants will be able to:

  • Identify at least three (3) new trends in use, potency, products and marketing practices that make women vulnerable to use.
  • Specify at least two (2) components of the relationship between cannabis and women’s health.
  • Recall at least two (2) ways that the legalization of recreational cannabis has influenced public health, perception of use, and consumption specifically targeting women.
  • Explain at least two (2) current research findings pertaining to addiction, intelligence/academic success, and parenting, and specify two (2) effective ways to communicate use deterrence.
