Default Medicinal Canabis Question

Hello All,

Asking for a friend.

Anyone here with anxiety issues (panic attacks, OCD etc.) find a type of canabis that actually helped with the coping?

If so, what strain in specific?

Weed can increase anxiety in some people. So if you want to try it, do so at home and around people you trust.

The thing with anxiety that no one ever discusses, id they do not adress the root cause.
cannanis is just a band aid.

Worse is, even if you go to a psych, you'll get meds to treat this.

Try to find the reason for your attacks and confront it.

Get something with low(er) THC and high(er) CBD.



Cannabis has two n's, by the way.

I think that it’s a better option to try to figure out the cause of the anxiety as well. However, there are times where it can get so bad that you need medication. I believe it’s better to use marijuana/medication as an “abort” method, rather than a daily habit.

What gets your “friend” anxious?

In reality, CBD is best. Charlotte's Web is high in CBD, but, Green Mountain produces a pill form
https://www.greenmountaincbd.com/

edit: with the pill form there is no THC, so there's no 'high'
edit 2: CBD also kills cancer. Surrounds it and starves it

Anyone I've ever met that tries to treat their anxiety with MJ, go from having good days and bad days to having all bad days, with them not only being worse if they're high.

Anxiety is an issue with thought process.

Think the dog that salivates when it hears the bell.

Marijuana can't help much with it.
Doctors won't tell you this because they avoid conflict.

If you just want your canabis card, tell them you suffer ptsd from being abused as a child. They can't deny you.

Your friend I mean

I've heard good things about CBD but it's expensive? Maybe insurance could cover it but doctors would probably prescribe something else?

CBD didn’t help my “friend”. He wanted to try it for anxiety and didn’t notice a difference. Maybe he bought the wrong brand or dosage.

Sativa strains have lower THC content compared to indica strains, so a sativa would be the suitable choice. It's the heavy indica strains that give one a paranoid feeling.

As far as I know, CBD is used to treat pain and seizures. Highly doubt it would help with anxiety.

My sister is a very high strung, high anxiety. Been that way since childhood. Very big difference for her when she smokes vs not smoking.

I will just second what people have said that finding a strain that is high in CBD is what you want.

I've found personally that using weed medicinally is great for:
  • Getting good sleep
  • Helps when you're sick to have an appetite
  • Hangover remedy (nothing better then this IMO and drinking tons of water)
Cheers

I had crippling anxiety in my late teens and early 20s, I was hospitalized for that amongst some other psychiatric disorders and I smoked weed when I was very young and continued in my teenage years which I think contributed to many of my psychological problems. Every time I smoked my anxiety shot through the roof along with extreme paranoia. I know everyone is different and reacts differently, but it's very important to know that weed can cause more anxiety in some people. However, if your friend already know that it helps them relax a bit, then I think you can easily find out online what strain would be the best for them.

High doses of doctor prescribed opioids worked great for me, but I wouldn't suggest it to anyone.
Along with trazodone, but oh hell no

I've been dealing with some bad anxiety for quite a while now. From the research and testing I've done, the results are far too broad to draw any real conclusion. The results vary based on the person, strain of MJ, other meds that the person is on, their environment, etc. I've had the extremes of both end and decided that it wasn't worth it for me, but other people have found a combination that works well enough for them that they don't have to rely as much on prescription meds. Keep in mind that I haven't smoked in over 5 years now and things have progressed a lot in that amount of time.

If your friend decides to try it, make sure he/she/you does it in a comfortable setting with someone that he/she/you trusts.

My wife was prescribed anxiety meds by her doctor but the side effects were worse than the anxiety. She struggled to sleep at night so opted to start using Zoots instead. She will take a half of one an hour or so before bed and allows her to slow things down and sleep.

For daytime stress and anxiety relief she uses the gym.
