WHAT ARE THE BEST WEED STRAINS FOR ANXIETY?
The legalization of marijuana for medical use has prompted the recent explosion in research on its potential benefits. As more states consider the possibility of legalizing the drug for recreational use, perhaps the most compelling areas of research are those that relate to the effects of marijuana on mental health. Studies have shown that marijuana has a range of potential benefits, including reducing anxiety and depression.
Everyone gets stressed out sometimes. For some people, though, the pressure of everyday life can get so overwhelming that they find themselves worrying all the time—even when there’s no reason to. Anxiety is a serious medical condition that affects millions of people around the world. This condition is called general anxiety disorder (GAD), and in order to treat it, you need to find a way to avoid letting every little thing get you down. Some people find that smoking weed helps to relieve their stress and keep them from feeling overwhelmed.
WHAT CAUSES ANXIETY?
The exact cause of anxiety is still not known, but there are a number of things that seem to contribute to increased levels of anxiety—and there are even more factors that can make it worse. The most common treatment for anxiety is SSRI medications, which are serotonin reuptake inhibitors. These drugs help improve serotonin levels in the brain and may also reduce the effects of stress hormones such as cortisol.
Because these medications increase serotonin levels in the brain, they can also have a number of side effects. Some people experience sexual dysfunction and increased feelings of depression while on SSRIs—and others may experience gastrointestinal distress or weight gain. By contrast, marijuana has been shown to relieve symptoms for many people who struggle with anxiety disorders—but does not share many side effects with SSRIs or other prescription options for anxiety relief.
