List of the Most Popular Cannabis Strains for Anxiety Reduction
Anxiety disorders are common psychological illnesses on a global level. One of the methods that people use today is marijuana for anxiety. A 2017survey has discovered that 81% of Americans reported benefits from using marijuana. Half of them included in their list of benefits – anxiety relief.
Thanks to two main ingredients in cannabis, THC and CBD, people can experience all kinds of relief and effects.
THC is a psychoactive compound that causes a certain ‘high’. Strains for anxiety that contain high THC content are best used in evenings, and in smaller doses (especially if you are a novice consumer).
CBD, on the other hand, is a nonpsychoactive compound. It’s recommend to people who struggle with chronic anxiety that prevents them to complete daily tasks. It boosts the mood by activating CB1 and CB2 receptors without causing psychedelic effects. It is known to improve relaxation, allow for better sleep, and increase the sense of calm.
