Cannabis and Anxiety - Weed Depot
Cannabis and Anxiety – Weed Depot

As a 20 year old college student attempting to juggle a school work load, friends, family, applying for internships/jobs…you could say the stress is real, real, real! And the severe anxiety isn’t far behind it. I believe that marijuana should be legalized all over the United States to help relieve stress and anxiety. The University of California Undergraduate Research Journal conducted an experiment to see if cannabidiol (CBD), which is an ingredient used in marijuana, had an effect on anxiety levels. The results proved that “the administration of CBD was associated with significantly decreased subjective anxiety.” After talking to friends that suffer from severe anxiety, most said that marijuana does an even better job than prescribed medications and gives them a sense of control over their anxiousness as well as a sense of calmness. I believe that marijuana does more good than harm and can greatly benefit people who suffer from anxiety disorder.
