Anxiety and Stress: A Personal Struggle

Your ReThink-Rx™ Doctor Will Help

Living with anxiety is unpleasant and unsettling when mild to moderate and can be crippling when severe. If you live with anxiety, you know how destructive it can be. With the COVID-19 pandemic, previously manageable levels of stress and anxiety have blossomed into uncontrolled, debilitating anxiety and PTSD for many people. With every turn of this pandemic comes new waves of uncertainty and anxiety. Seemingly simple events like Thanksgiving and Halloween can take on a whole new level of stress for those with social anxiety.

You’re probably familiar with the claims that medical marijuana can be helpful to manage anxiety, and you’d be right. Many people find it helpful- from calming simple nervousness and daily stress to managing OCD, PTSD and panic episodes. Commonly reported benefits include increased sense of calm, improved relaxation, greater peace of mind, better clarity of thought and better, healthier sleep.

The scientific research is ongoing, but there is growing evidence that cannabis therapy is very effective against several types of anxiety. These conditions include social anxiety disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and severe anxiety with panic episodes. Additional evidence exists for cannabis helping agoraphobia, ADHD, social stress, and other phobias.

Dosing strategies and product selection play an important role in successfully treating anxiety with cannabis. If not approached correctly, some patients may sometimes experience an increase in anxiety symptoms. Simple paranoia can sometimes become greatly exaggerated.

So, understanding therapeutic principles of cannabis and anxiety management, will help greatly. Your ReThink-Rx doctor will explain just how this works and will help you develop a strategy that works best for you.
