Anxiety – a general term for a wide range of anxiety disorders, including Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD), Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), and recently, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). In the United States, anxiety disorders are among the most common forms of mental illness, affecting 40 million adults a day in the United States, aged 18 and over, or about 18.1% of the population.
Anxiety often accompanies conditions such as depression and bipolar disorder and may play a role in irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and other inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). Chronic pain can also cause anxiety and anxiety, which can make the pain worse. Because of the alarming effects on serotonin receptors, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are the most common early sources of call. Treatment also includes benzodiazepines such as lorazepam (Ativan), alprazolam (Xanax) and diazepam (Valium), but problems include dependence and inefficacy of PTSD.
Cannabis can make you feel a little more anxious when it can help reduce it. This largely depends not only on the patient’s individual constitution but also on the stress he chooses. Tense and concentrated on THC, but with a minimum or no CBD can trigger the alarm while high strains of CBD help prevent anxiety attacks.
As with most studies on cannabis and various medical problems, the evidence is limited due to legal restrictions. However, cannabis seems to be very anxiolytic, modulating anxiety behavior and releasing the neurotransmitter in other situations in stressful situations.
In addition, it is important to know that most of the physical pain is fear. Pain can cause anxiety and increased anxiety can make the pain worse. Panic attacks can also make a person “hypersensitive” to pain.
Anxiety is treated well enough by antidepressants, such as SSRIs. However, benzodiazepines can be used in the most extreme cases, an alternative can be cannabis. In addition, antidepressants may take some time to work, as well as different types of antidepressants, as some antidepressants may work, while others – no. Cannabinoids may be a potential “immediate” solution to anxiety attacks or generally promote well-being and reduce anxiety. 2,733 patients interviewed cannabis for anxiety. 149 (2.06%) patients used cannabis to replace or reduce their need for anxiolytic drugs.
