Answer - hi my name is Efrem, i need relief from my chronic pain and insomnia now im here :) i use indica/cbd combo to put me down. The best thing to do for anxiety is to address the root cause. Do you need to settle something, figure something out, or make a big change? In the meantime, keeping a clear head can help you discover what is causing the anxiety. I like to use Lemon Balm, Valerian Root, and hemp, mixed in a capsule.
Valerian root is an anti-anxiety and anti-depressant. And of course, phytocannabinoids found in whole plant form (green flowers) ingested is the healthiest way to eat the plant. It restores the body back to homeostasis, assisting your nervous system into healing. Dative makes me paranoid and anxious but vaping Effects me differently and I can handle either indica or sativa. I prefer vaping because its less sedating and I get less munchies. However, it can cause exactly the same effect in some people. Cannabis is one of the most powerful alternative medications on the planet. Many turn to it for relief for a range of physical and mental symptoms – including anxiety.
Unfortunately, many people sometimes experience the exact opposite. Cannabis can cause panic and anxiety attacks in some individuals. There are a couple of things you can do about this phenomenon. The first most important thing is to realize what is happening to you. Recognition of the symptoms is the first step; dealing them is the next. There are some strains that have been bred to combat these kinds of feelings. There is also a good source of relief in another cannabinoid. Some people call it “paranoia.” Others describe this as a panic attack. Essentially it is the feeling that something bad is going to happen. In turn, it causes a physical reaction - the body tenses up. The mind can loop on potentialities for a long time. It can occur on its own or as part of other symptomology. Cannabis – more specifically certain cannabinoids, including CBD and THC, work in many cases to quell these feelings. Again it is not entirely understood why, but in some individuals, cannabis ingestion can cause the same, prickly, uncomfortable feelings. The first problem, of course, is that these feelings are hard to pinpoint. On top of that, many people turn to cannabis for relief of such symptoms - even if they do not recognize it. Many people who describe themselves as “recreational users” are actually people self-medicating, trying to relieve the tension of the day and the stress and anxiety that go with it. If however, you begin to feel worse rather than better after lighting up, that is one sign. Another sign is the desire to check outside the window for the cops. Unless you have recently robbed a bank, this "reality" you might be worried about is not about to happen. You have to be observant of yourself in such situations, which is also never easy. However, if you feel like this condition is happening to you after you have toked up, don’t panic. You can bring yourself down fairly quickly, and after it is over, don’t worry. You can always go shopping for another strain that does not tend to cause these kinds of effects. If you realize you are in the middle of a panic attack or feel rising anxiety caused by cannabis, good.
Try to ground yourself in the “now.” This will allow you to take immediate, concrete steps to make this feeling go away. Stepping outside for a few minutes might also do the trick. Or even sticking your head under the tap while running cold water over the nape of the neck. It will have an instant impact on the chemicals in your bloodstream. Try a glass of lemonade, or a piece of fresh mango. These are laden in terpenes – just like cannabis in fact. And terpenes like pinene, myrcene, and caryophyllene all calm anxiety. They are also found in other foods too, like citrus fruit. Now you have your feet and brain more or less back on track, continue to stay physically and or mentally “busy.” You could listen to music. You could go to the mall (although driving is a bad idea).
The point is, the more you move, the better you will feel.
