How Does Marijuana Treat or Manage Anxiety?
Marijuana contains two active ingredients, cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). The compound that makes you high (psychotropic) is the THC, while CBD does not contain the psychoactive compounds. Both have useful medicinal use, but most people prefer using CBD for their anxiety since it has no high.
Additionally, MMJ helps drop your cortisol levels as it is the hormone that indicates stress. The reduced cortisol levels dull your stress response. Users of marijuana have always known about its positive effect on reducing anxiety, stress, and nervousness. Whether you use marijuana for medicinal purposes or not, you will find the calming effects of marijuana useful.
