“Anxiety disorders” is an umbrella term used to refer to a collection of mental disorders that, for those affected, cause severe and debilitating levels of distress and fear. Medical professionals have named several kinds of anxiety disorders, and people who suffer from these typically experience episodes that can last weeks or months.
Sufferers of anxiety disorders usually experience feelings of fear, panic, and uneasiness as a regular part of each and every day. Anxiety disorders have been documented to cause sleeping problems like insomnia, sweaty hands and feet, shortness of breath and heart palpitations, dry mouth, the inability to be calm or still, coldness or numbness in your hands and feet, nausea and dizziness, and pain caused by chronic muscle tension.
Although the cause of anxiety disorders remains unknown, research has suggested that they are caused by a variety of environmental factors including stress and chemical changes in the brain caused by sudden or prolonged trauma. Anxiety disorders can also co-occur with other mental or physical illnesses, such as substance abuse or depression. Because the cause of an individual’s anxiety disorder may be different than another’s, treatment efforts for anxiety can and should include working with a therapist or mental health professional who can guide you through your treatment, especially if you are also suffering from comorbid depression or substance abuse.
Medical marijuana can help patients with anxiety find relief from:
We’ve all heard stories about a friend or family member who took a small puff of cannabis and turned into a paranoid or jumpy stranger. That’s because the relationship between cannabis and anxiety is complicated by the chemistry of cannabis itself.
Most people who are nominally familiar with marijuana have at least heard of THC, tetrahydrocannabinol. THC is the most popular and psychoactive of the cannabinoids in marijuana. Simply put, the ‘high’ you feel after lighting up is cause by THC. However, as the medical marijuana industry has grown, many people have just started to realize there are strains out there with little to no THC. Instead, these strains have higher levels of cannabidiol, also known as CBD, which not only has no psychoactive effects but may actually counteract the ‘adverse’ effects of THC (like paranoia).
