Choosing Cannabis Strains To Manage Anxiety

Various researchers have shown that low doses of THC in medical marijuana in San Jose can lower anxiety levels by binding CB1 receptors in the amygdala, or the part of the brain responsible for feelings of anxiety and stress. Trauma or chronic stress has been shown to lessen natural endocannabinoids production which may contribute to prolonged feelings of anxiety.

Consuming elevated doses, however, THC seems to have the opposite effect. Rather than lessening anxiety, high levels of THC might actually make matters worse by reducing the efficiency of cannabinoid receptors. The ones who want to manage anxiety during their marijuana experience should get strains with low THC levels and higher CBD levels.

For cannabis strains that cure anxiety, look for strains such as Juliet – a fruity Sativa-dominant hybrid that combats social phobia; Stardawg – a pine and diesel fuel-flavored hybrid that is both euphoric and uplifting; White Fire Alien OG – a lemony Indica hybrid known to relieve pain, anxiety and stress; and 303 OG – a spicy strain that both combats anxiety and promotes creativity and socialization.

Keep in mind that no matter what type of medical condition you have, there is always exclusive medical marijuana in San Jose, CA available to administer it efficiently!
