The link between anxiety and cannabis is not as straightforward as it may initially appear. For many, the thought of smoking marijuana conjures images of the paranoid sequences from the now cult propaganda film Reefer Madness. The fact is that in some the effect can be immensely calming, but for others weed can only exacerbate anxiety symptoms. The anxiety-inducing effects of cannabis can be largely attributed to THC content. Luckily Calgarians now have access to numerous strains with low to no THC content. CBD, as a powerful anti-anxiety compound can be utilized with great success.

When investigating cannabis strains to suit a specific purpose, it’s important to first determine your own personal tolerance. This article gives a few strains you can ask your Calgary retail staff about if you’re interested in reducing your anxiety levels.
