Cannabis affects women in the part of the brain that controls hormone release. It is by these hormones that the menstrual cycle is controlled. The concept is that females who smoke or use cannabis regularly cause their hormones to become depressed also producing a raised in testosterone level and therefore experience irregularity in their menstrual cycle. Even though this effect may be reversible, it may take several months of no marijuana use before the menstrual cycles become normal again.
