Anxiety & Marijuana

Anxiety disorders can include generalized anxiety, panic disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). All of these conditions have in common that the person includes fear, apprehension, worry, and physical tension. Anxiety is also a factor in other physiatrics disorders such as schizophrenia, depression, and bipolar disorders. The use of orally administrated cannabis has been used for over 2000 years. Cannabis that has been grown in the Middle East and Central Asia with high CBD content have long reported to “destroy anxiety and bring joy”. There are a high amount of CB1 cannabinoid receptors in the amygdala, anterior cingulate, cortex, and hippocampus of the brain. All of these sections of the brain contribute in regulating anxiety. Research has also linked the endocannabinoid system to the extinction of bad memories, which can be helpful in aiding patients suffering from PTSD. Vaporizing or smoking cannabis appears to be the most effective delivery method to decrease anxiety among sufferers using medical marijuana.
