About Anxiety Disorders

Although experiencing anxiety on occasion is a regular part of life, there are many people with anxiety disorders who frequently suffer from intense, excessive and persistent worry and fear about ordinary, everyday situations. Anxiety disorders typically involve repeated episodes of sudden feelings of intense fear or terror, commonly known as panic attacks.

Common signs and symptoms of anxiety include:

  • Nervousness, restlessness, or feeling tense
  • Having a sense of impending danger or panic
  • Hyperventilation
  • Increased heart rate
  • Trembling
  • Sweating
  • Concentration issues
  • Sleeping issues
  • Feeling weak or tired
  • Difficulty controlling worries
  • Gastrointestinal issues
  • The urge to avoid things that may trigger anxiety

If you feel like you’re worrying too much and it’s interfering with your work, relationships, and other important parts of your life, it is imperative to see your doctor or a mental health provider in order to determine if medical marijuana is an effective treatment.

How Medical Cannabis Can Help

When it comes to treatment for anxiety, medical marijuana is quickly gaining ground. Advocates believe that the chemical makeup of cannabis can be beneficial in treating anxiety; however, there are others who will argue that it can attribute to anxiety.

It is important to understand that there are two main active ingredients in pot: THC and CBD. While THC is linked to the “high” feeling, as well as feelings of anxiety and paranoia, CBD counteracts such feelings from THC—thus lowering or even eliminating anxiety.

The following are benefits of using CBD for anxiety:

  • CBD isn’t psychoactive as THC, so it doesn’t produce a “high” or increase or cause anxiety the way THC does
  • CBD is calming, making those who experience anxiety more relaxed so they can function better
  • CBD and cannabis in general is not associated with problematic withdrawal symptoms
