Can High Amounts of THC Help With A UTI?

 

If you are a goddess reading this, you know all to well the uncomfortable sensation that comes from having a urinary tract infection. Most women have had at least one of these experiences in their life which usually leaves you running to the local Walgreens to grab some cranberry juice tablets and a shit ton of water.  Luckily, today there are some great products that contain high amounts of THC, which have been found to relieve the pain and frequent urge to go.

How Do You Even Get A UTI?

A UTI can be caused by a variety of bacteria. Your pussy encounters so much bacteria! Thank Goddess we are equipped with a self cleansing portal, but sometimes she needs a little help. These bacteria adhere to the lining of the bladder and the mucosal wall of the urinary tract causing lots of uncomfortable urges.

Antibacterial soaps, sprays, creams, and even some lubricants all alter the PH of the urinary tract, which allows for the bacteria to have an environment to colonize. Ingesting foods that contain a large amount of pesticides can also alter the tissue PH and structure.

Antibiotic use depletes the friendly bacteria normally present in the genitourinary tract and allows an overgrowth of candida albicans. The overgrowth of candida can alter the pH of the urinary tract and contribute to recurrent UTI’s. -Herbal Wisdom Institute

Stress is a great producer of the white blood cell destroyers adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH), glucocorticoids, and aldosterone. Whenever these white blood cells are low we are more prone to infection.

Treating A UTI With Cannabis

Our endocannabinoids are responsible for keeping our most critical biological functions in balance such as sleep, appetite, the immune system, pain and more. When the body gets out of balance and moves into a state of stress, endocannabinoids go to work to fix the problem. -Chronic Relief

THC is an anti-spasmodic, muscle relaxant, and antioxidant. In taking a certain amount of THC whenever you feel a UTI coming on can help the infection from spreading. The essential water intake needs to be non stop. Drinking as much as you can drink without feeling sick, as frequently as you can. The only way to get relief is to keep pushing out that infection by flushing the bacteria out.

It is no surprise there are many plant spirits that can be picked up at your local metaphysical store if Cannabis is not your first option. I suggest making a tea blend and drinking it three-four times a day while chasing each cup with 7 ounces of water.

Cannabis products to use while treating a UTI vary according how long the infection has been in place. I have found using edibles over smoking seemed to bring more relief faster to each woman. Some women could vaporize Cannabis and found relief but also added the second step that I recommend. Edibles or Tinctures are at the top of the list. Within 20-30 minutes and a few glasses of water, pain begins to dissipate. There are no studies showing proof that Cannabis can heal the urinary tract but a combination of high does of THC/CBD plus the herbal blend of plant medicines listed above have continually been effective for women all over the country. Some of the best edible brands I have found to be quick, discreet, and potent without having a ton of sugar are Breez Mints, Fruit Slabs, and Lulu’s.

Keep in mind that bladder infections can travel to the kidneys; this can be dangerous and requires medical attention.
