Why Marijuana Takes Away Anxiety Temporarily

June 30, 2018

There are many kinds of anxiety disorders, generalized, OCD, social anxiety disorder, panic disorder, PTSD, and specific phobias. However, I think marijuana can be a touch addictive since I was around it a lot in my adult life because somebody I knew used to smoke it. I got secondary contact highs that made me test positive. Marijuana helps Effexor brain shivers a lot, as well as chronic pain anyway. Cannabis in creams certainly can help the physical pain. Constant anxiety and stress used to be something I was dealing with on a daily basis. But now, I can honestly say I feel better.


My medication keeps extreme fear away. It helps me decide that I’m in the driver’s seat. I’m in control, and the thing is, I fear crowds. Lecture halls dazzle me but I need a small school although UCLA has what I need, everything that is. This time I cannot escape statistics. Anxiety can cause shortness of breath, fatigue, and restlessness. Buspar helps me control my anxiety and at least my doctor will renew it since I have proof it works. Anxiety means that few people seek treatment, so terrified are they of the stigma. I’m grateful for my medication.



I’ve toughed out using infusion on a regular basis. This website ( states that marijuana can be used as an alternative to medication. GABA is a neurotransmitter that manages anxiety levels and medication helps GABA levels go up. You can find it in a natural supplement store. Marijuana can apparently, manage the amount of GABA in your brain. The cortisol hormone causes stress to go up. But marijuana can help reduce the amount of cortisol. Marijuana, however, also causes psychosis, which can trigger anxiety. Marijuana must be used wisely because it can become addictive. The more you use, the worse anxiety can get. Different strains of marijuana help anxiety. Strains such as Northern Lights can help you sleep along with relieving pain. Amnesia Haze, on the other hand, has 20% Sativa in it, since it won’t make you as tired as other species with more Indica, at the level of 100%. Sativa can boost mood along with energy but the thing is, I don’t want to have positive pee tests as marijuana is legal at the state level but not at the federal level. Sometimes pain levels require the use of more marijuana and this can be detrimental to anxiety disorders that get worse. All things in moderation.
