Outreach Health and Wellness offers a holistic approach to anxiety.

Random fits of anxiety can strike at any time. If you’re prone to suffering from sudden bursts of anxiety throughout the day, properly using medical marijuana products is a holistic solution that has the potential to quell anxiety and put you at ease. Through proper stimulation of your endocannabinoid system, you can naturally regulate the levels of anxiety you are facing every day. Your endocannabinoid system is a vast network of receptors throughout your body that reacts when exposed to cannabis products. Below we have laid out some viable options that will improve your quality of life, and help you remain at ease. 

Try CBD products. 

THC is the compound in marijuana responsible for the euphoric effect users experience. For some, this is an uncomfortable and unpleasant sensation. Luckily, CBD is an option that provides the relaxation and sense of well-being without the euphoric “high” that THC produces. CBD comes in many forms including, edibles, tinctures, flower, and oils. We recommend consulting a professional before trying any of these options to find the best solution for you.

Take small doses of THC edibles. 

For experienced users, higher doses of edibles are enjoyable and manageable. However, if you are new to marijuana products taking a high dose can be wildly uncomfortable and is not recommended. Start with a small, 5mg dose of an edible and wait a few hours for it to kick in. New users often make the mistake of taking too many at once because they do not immediately experience the effects. Microdosing edibles is a great way to activate your endocannabinoid system and acquaint yourself with medical marijuana products. 

Try a 1:1 CBD to THC ratio.

To get the best of both worlds, many wellness centers offer a 1:1 CBD to THC ratio. This is ideal for more experienced users who enjoy the effect of THC and also recognize the healing qualities of CBD. This option is available in strains of flower, tinctures, oils, and edibles. 

Limit your consumption.

Moderation and routine dosing are key. Try to set a limit for how much cannabis you are ingesting a day. Indulging in copious consumption can produce an unwanted effect that will interrupt the success of your efforts. It is not advisable to take any marijuana products before consulting your physician first. If you are already taking antidepressants or anti-anxiety medications, combining them with marijuana could result in producing an adverse effect.
