How To Deal With Anxiety Using Medical Marijuana
What is Anxiety?
We have all experienced anxiety in our lives. It’s a common condition in which we start feeling, unease, showing signs of worry or fear. Many things we do in our daily lives such as heavy workload, sleep deprivation, and genetics all contribute to it. However, some people suffer more serious types of anxiety such as social phobia (social anxiety disorder), separation anxiety disorder (SAD), and generalized anxiety disorder which causes them disruptions in their daily life.
Luckily, many methods are being explored and studied to help combat anxiety. One of which is through the use of medical marijuana.
Benefits of Marijuana to Deal Anxiety?
Medical Marijuana (also known as cannabis) has been consumed by many cultures for hundreds of years and has been used in order to treat symptoms of illness and other conditions that people may have.
The compound that is found in cannabis known as cannabidiol (CBD) offers substantial benefits for people suffering from a variety of anxiety disorders. It has been shown that CBD can decrease anxiety by boosting serotonin levels in the brain, working similarly to most common antidepressants. Experts believe that cannabis interacts with receptors in the brain which has a positive impact on mental health.
Both compounds in cannabis have proven therapeutic for people suffering from anxiety, however most doctors lean towards recommending using high-CBD and low-THC products to their anxiety patients. High doses of THC can trigger part of the brain (amygdala) that is responsible for fear, which of course may make the symptoms of anxiety much worse.
It takes time to find the right products to treat your condition, but many anxiety patients have found that cannabis can be an incredibly helpful alternative to pharmaceuticals.
