We have sourced information from a variety of well-established medical marijuana websites and a summary of this information is laid out for you below.

What is anxiety?

Anxiety varies – it can be mild or severe. It is described as a feeling of unease, such as worry or fear. It’s perfectly normal for everyone to experience feelings of anxiety at some point in their lives and is usually nothing to worry about. It won’t need treatment and it will go away on its own. However, some people do suffer with a generalised anxiety disorder (GAD) and therefore find it more difficult to control any worries they have. These people have a more constant anxiety and this will often affect their daily life. Such people often feel anxious about a diverse number of situations and issues, rather than one specific event. They will suffer with anxiety most days and sometimes struggle to remember the last time they felt relaxed.

Anxiety can be a symptom of a number of conditions, including panic disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder and phobias. Anxiety affects around one in twenty people and is more prevalent among women than men. Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S., affecting 40 million adults in the United States age 18 and older. 

The symptoms of anxiety

A GAD can cause both mental and physical symptoms. These vary depending on the individual but can include feeling irritable, worried, and suffering with insomnia or having trouble concentrating.

 Conventional treatment for anxiety

For anxiety sufferers sometimes even everyday tasks can seem impossible. A variety of different treatments are available to ease psychological and physical symptoms, which can include psychological help and medication.

Psychological help generally begins with talking therapies: either counselling or cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). CBT helps the patient to identify unhelpful and unrealistic beliefs and behavioural patterns. The patient then works with the therapist work to change their behaviour and replace their unhelpful beliefs with more realistic and balanced ones. Studies suggest psychological treatment has longer lasting effects than medication.

There are a number of medicines used to treat anxiety. This can include long-term medication such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs which increase serotonin in your brain), such as sertraline, fluoxetine, citalopram or paroxetine and venlafaxine. Short-term medication can include antihistamines, benzodiazepines and buspirone.

Common side effects of SSRIs can include:

·         feeling nauseous

·         having blurred vision

·         suffering with diarrhoea or constipation

·         having a low sex drive

·         dizziness or sweating

·         dry mouth or loss of appetite·          

Medical marijuana for anxiety

Anxiety may well be caused by chemical imbalance in the brain when the brain’s neurotransmitter activity is disturbed. Higher levels of serotonin, counter some depressive symptoms. Therefore, using medical marijuana for anxiety disorders as an alternative treatment may help some of the common symptoms. It is well known that stress related anxiety can affect your emotions and put you at higher risk of depression. This in turn can lead to problems with memory and learning as well. Daily doses of marijuana may protect the brain from memory and learning problems related to chronic stress.

Research published in the journal Neuropsychopharmacology in Israel claims that medical marijuana can protect against memory and learning loss which results from chronic stress. The researchers have claimed that their findings “suggest that cannabinoid receptor activation could represent a novel approach to the treatment of cognitive deficits that accompany a variety of stress-related neuropsychiatric disorders.”

It is interesting that while the use of marijuana is known to cause temporary memory problems in healthy people, the opposite is true in rats with chronic stress. Daily doses of a THC-like chemical seemed to improve short-term memory compared to those that were left untreated. Rats that received medical marijuana treatment also exhibited greater learning abilities.

According to on-going research, THC, which is an active ingredient found in medical marijuana, comes into contact and reacts with a chemical called anandamide. Anandamide reduces the response to threat in the brain. Medical marijuana patients using medical marijuana for anxiety therefore describe an instant relaxing and soothing sensation in the body. 

The benefits of using medical marijuana for anxiety

Medical marijuana patients are able to avoid the use of opiates, tranquillizers, sleeping pills and other antidepressant medicines. Mood elevation made possible by medical marijuana has a positive effect because it enables a patient to begin to take interest in activities that help him or her to slowly recover. Mood improvement acts as a catalyst in the path to recovery.
