Medical Cannabis for Anxiety

Are you overwhelmed with negative emotions? Do you constantly feel nervous and worry about everything and anything? If so, you might have an anxiety disorder. In addition to interfering with daily activities, anxiety can affect the quality of life and physical health.

We all experience fears occasionally. That’s a normal part of our lives. However, some people regularly have excessive, intense worries and fears about different situations. They often face sudden feelings of extreme fear that is difficult to control. In the case of panic attacks, these feelings can culminate and reach a peak in a matter of minutes.

Once you realize the symptoms and causes of your anxiety disorder, you will have to find the most effective treatment solution. While there is a large number of anti-anxiety medications and psychological treatments, more and more people with anxiety disorders opt for medical cannabis. Read on to find out how our treatments can ease feelings of worry and panic.

What Is Anxiety?

When talking about anxiety, we think about a feeling of fear and apprehension that is characterized by various physical symptoms. There is a wide variety of anxiety disorders, including social phobia (social anxiety disorder), separation anxiety disorder (SAD), and generalized anxiety disorder. Some patients have two or more anxiety disorders.

What causes anxiety? There’s a good number of things associated with anxiety. For example, it can be triggered by certain medications (such as birth control pills and weight loss medications) and medical conditions like mood disorders and chronic pain. The environment you are in (job, school, home, etc.) and your genetics also play a big role.

Anxiety is one of the most common mental health conditions in Australia. It is estimated that over 2 million Australians experience some kind of anxiety in a 1-year period. One in four people on average will experience it at some point in his/her life.

As stated above, this mental condition is characterized by a variety of physical symptoms. Symptoms can start during the teen years or childhood and continue occurring into adulthood. People suffering from anxiety do not only feel nervous or experience abdominal pain. The symptoms of anxiety attacks can also include:
