Anxiety disorders have been a problem in the U.S. for a long time. But, as detailed in a post from Benzinga, there is an increasing impact from anxiety right now, with all that’s happening in the world. During this time especially, many people are turning to cannabis as a treatment for anxiety.
A Washington State University study, conducted in 2018, as well as innumerable anecdotal evidence, indicates that cannabis can be used effectively to treat a number of anxiety disorders. The study showed that one to ten puffs of a high CBD, low THC combination was effective for reducing anxiety and stress, without the side effects of other treatments. The anxiolytic (anti-anxiety) properties of cannabis have been shown to help with generalized and social anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, panic disorder, and depression.
