What Can Marijuana Do for Patients Experiencing Anxiety?

Although anxiety is not technically a “qualifying condition” under Ohio’s medical marijuana laws, many patients with a qualifying condition experience anxiety too. That being said, patients who use cannabis as a natural remedy for their qualifying condition and also experience anxiety may benefit from marijuana’s calming effects simultaneously.

Basically, if you have a qualifying condition in Ohio as well as anxiety, your anxiety may subside when you use cannabis as a medication. PTSD is now a qualifying condition in Ohio too. If you think your anxiety may be an effect of PTSD, schedule a PTSD evaluation today!

Cannabis and Anxiety

Although anxiety was not considered a qualifying condition in any state with a medical marijuana program until recently, studies show that a considerable number of cannabis patients use it to help with anxiety symptoms.

In a study conducted in California, about 38% of patients reported that they used marijuana to relieve anxiety.

Although there may not be any long term benefits of marijuana for anxiety, there are many short term benefits. Cannabis has proven to significantly reduce levels of depression, anxiety, and stress.

If you have a qualifying condition and consider yourself an anxious person, your medication can also help your mental condition.
