5 Best Marijuana Strains For Anxiety

These will help calm the mind, not make you overthink

Why Strains Matter

Cannabis and anxiety is a relationship that can be good and bad. Finding the right balance in different strains can be difficult, but you can learn what is better for your anxiety vs. what hurts more. It can be hard sometimes to ingest cannabis, not knowing what kind of high you will have, but these strains can help.

People who have anxiety need to stay away from some strains of marijuana. Otherwise, those stains may put them into a bad headspace. The same is true for some people when they drink. Being aware of your own brain chemistry and understanding why some strains are better than others is critical. Some types of cannabis can be harmful to people with anxiety, and learning what will help or hurt your anxiety is very important. Nobody wants to end up with a bad high, and the way to avoid that is knowing what does and does not work for you.

THC, CBD, Sativa, and Indica

The strains that will hurt more are high in Sativa and low in CBD. That does not mean that people with anxiety can only smoke Indica’s, though. Sativa’s high in CBD is there to help uplift our spirits and bring us into ourselves. Understanding the differences between strains is vital, so you will know how they will affect you.

CBD strains are always great to have on hand. If you suffer from anxiety, there will be times when you go over your THC limit. Having CBD there to help balance the THC is really important to not entering a bad headspace.

Indica strains are so great when you need to relax and just feel like you cannot. That there is a rubber band just waiting to be snapped, and there is so much tension that you need to relax. Indica’s will allow your body to melt into where ever you are sitting and finally feel at peace from your loud mind.

Sativa strains are the most dangerous for people with anxiety, and it reacts badly. All Sativa high strains can cause your mind to start wandering, and for some, that can be a bad thing if you are consuming cannabis to quiet your mind. However, if you combine a Sativa strain and a high CBD strain, you have the right mix for anxiety.

Learning what strains work best for you and your own limits is vital to being a responsible cannabis user. You do not want to end up lost in your own thoughts, beating yourself up about something, not able to stop thinking about it.
