Medical Cannabis & Cannabis Oil has been shown to improve symptoms of anxiety by stimulating the Endocannabinoid System allowing for anxiety to be managed.

Anxiety is a general term for several disorders that cause nervousness, fear, apprehension and worrying. These disorders affect how we feel and behave, and they can manifest real physical symptoms. Mild anxiety is vague and unsettling while severe anxiety can be extremely debilitating having a serious impact on daily life.

People often experience a general state of worry or fear before confronting something challenging such as a test, examination, recital or interview. These feelings are easily justified and considered normal. Anxiety is considered a problem when symptoms interfere with a person’s ability to sleep or otherwise function.

Studies show that the Endocannabinoid System, the body’s natural Cannabinoid system plays a major role in regulating anxiety. Cannabinoid receptors are the binding sites of Cannabinoids and are highly concentrated in certain parts of the brain that are responsible for anxiety.

Interestingly studies show that patients experience higher levels of anxiety when Cannabinoid receptors are blocked by drugs such as anti anxiety medications. Likewise regular Medical Cannabis users report that Cannabis helps to reduce their anxiety levels.

Research has also linked the Endocannabinoid System to the extinction of bad memories thus supporting Medical Cannabis potential role in treating post traumatic stress disorder as well as the growth of new brain cells (neurogenesis) which is believed to improve anxiety levels.
