How to Use Cannabis for Anxiety Relief


You probably won’t be surprised if I tell you that millions of people worldwide suffer from anxiety. Anxiety is a common mental health problem. It can make you feel worried, fearful, and panicked, which can be overwhelming and hard to handle. Some people have turned to cannabis as a natural alternative to traditional treatments for anxiety, such as therapy and medication. In this article, we’ll talk about how to use cannabis to help with anxiety and what you need to know before you try it.


Understanding Anxiety

Before we talk about using marijuana to treat anxiety, it’s important to know what anxiety is and how it affects the body and mind. Anxiety is a normal response to stress, but it can be seriously damaging when it lasts too long and happens too often. People with anxiety can have physical symptoms, such as sweating, trembling, and a fast heartbeat. There are also psychological symptoms such as excessive worrying, fear, and panic attacks.


Cannabis and Anxiety

Cannabis has been used as medicine for centuries, and in recent years, people have become more interested in using it to help with anxiety. There are more than 100 different cannabinoids in the cannabis plant. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol are two of the most well-known (CBD).

THC is the psychoactive part of marijuana, which means it can change how you feel and what you see. It is known for making people euphoric, but in high doses, it can also make some people anxious and paranoid. On the other hand, CBD is a compound that isn’t psychoactive and is renowned for helping people feel calm. It doesn’t give you the same “high” as THC, and some studies demonstrated it could help with anxiety and other mental health problems.


Choosing the Right Strain

When using cannabis to help with anxiety, it’s important to choose the right strain. Some strains can make anxiety worse, while others can help with it. Most people think that indica strains are more relaxing and calming, while sativa strains can be more energising and uplifting. But it’s important to remember that everyone reacts to cannabis differently and what works for one person might not work for another.


Start Low and Go Slow

If you’ve never used cannabis to help with your anxiety before, you should start with a small dose and slowly increase it over time. This method, called “start low and go slow,” can help you avoid possible side effects and find the right dose for your needs.


Methods of Consumption

There are different ways to use cannabis, and each one has its own pros and cons. The most common ways to use are smoking and vaping, but both can be hard on the lungs and may not be right for everyone. Edibles are another option, but it can be hard to get the right dose and they can take longer to work.



CBD oil is another popular way to use cannabis to help with anxiety. It is a concentrated form of CBD that is taken from the cannabis plant and mixed with a carrier oil like coconut oil or hemp seed oil. CBD oil can be taken sublingually (under the tongue), put on the skin, or added to food and drinks.



Cannabis can be a natural way to deal with anxiety, but it’s important to be careful and talk to a medical professional before trying it. Choosing the right strain, starting with a low dose, and finding the best way to use cannabis can all help you get the most out of its potential to help with anxiety. With the right guidance and use, cannabis could be a new way to deal with anxiety and a more natural way to live.
