Many patients with anxiety disorder report the use of cannabis, especially in times of stress. But, there has been a debate over it’s use as a treatment, with scientists asking if long term use can actually worsen anxiety.
Can Cannabis Cure Anxiety?

If you’re thinking about using cannabis to treat anxiety, you might want to consider starting with CBD first. Because it is non-intoxicating, it is more tolerable to humans. CBD also has unique ways of binding to different receptors in the amygdala in our brains, and is capable of mediating the 5-HT receptors, which are responsible for producing fear. If you are still looking for a high and the anti-anxiety benefits of CBD, ask your budtender for 1:1 options of THC:CBD. Many dispensaries also offer a variety of different ratios, so you can find what products work best for you!
