Hey man, 

I’m also someone who uses for anxiety.

This is a hard one to answer as although there are common effects among people, I think that how we interact with various strains is also very subjective. So it’s really about finding what works for you. 

For what it’s worth, and this is just from my own experience, I’ve found that the best ones for my anxiety tend to be hybrids that are either mostly Sativa or mostly Indica. Not sure why, it’s just what has worked for me. 

To give you two examples: my all time favourite Sativa dominant is NYC Diesel from Soma Seeds and for an Indica dominant something like Purple Punch from Barney’s (will post links below). NYC Diesel for daytime use and Purple Punch for an evening smoke. 

Saying all that, I have friends who also use for anxiety that swear by 50/50 hybrids. One thing I do believe is that no matter what strain you use, flowers that have not been grown properly and most importantly have been harvested too early, are not good for and can often exacerbate anxiety. 

Hope some of that is useful 😏

Hey there! Some time ago I began to feel more anxious because of the beginning of the semester at uni, stress from the work, and personal life issues. Feeling how more often I started to feel anxious than ever, I went to a therapist, and after to another one, and so on until I eventually found really good advice from a friend of mine who is a therapist as well, because everyone else's advices didn't help me. He gave me a natural remedy for my frequent anxiety, which was <no links please>, it is a recreational drug, used for relieving anxiety, but only on the doctor's prescription in the right dosage. Now I can say for sure, kratom is my strain from anxiety, and will be for the next 5 months

Anxiety sucks @speedgreens , Since everyone responds different, experimentation is needed until you can zero in on what works for you. I can tell you what works for me and that is a lower THC with higher CBD. From what I've read over the years this mix gets the most votes, but not all. At the moment I'm using these

Hi man,

Granddaddy Purple is a classic one here, I guess. Have been smoking to control my panic attacks and social anxiety. Two months later, I can surely said it worked out well for me bro

@alexny_420 Welcome to Percys man, glad you found a strain that helps Smile

Each strain is different, and they will all effect a person differently. So test some different ones and see what works well for you. The key is to make sure the weed is grown properly, so the THC is not immature. That will cause anxiety and paranoia too. If the weed is grown right and harvested properly, most strains should help Smile This is why its good to grow your own, you can make sure its done right before chopping it

As someone who generally always thought I only smoked for the buzz or whatever, I think as I got older I realised there is reasons for us all to use what we do. 

so nice to see people’s lives being improved through this beautiful plant . We ain’t just helping each other grow, we’re helping each other improve our quality of life too. It’s awesome man.

I am definitely in the higher CBD and lower THC camp.  Higher THC can really exacerbate anxiety in some people, whereas something with more CBD just mellows everything out for a lot of people. THC is biphasic in that low doses inhibit the reuptake of anandamide, thereby reducing anxiety, while high doses can make anxiety much worse.  Its is important to carefully start out low with THC and much more CBD, with a ratio of like 10:1 or even higher. CBD can literally has the same action as some anxiolytics by inhibiting serotonin reuptake, but without all the nasty side effects of a lot of anxiolytics from big pharma.  I really recommend Dr. Goldstein's book, Cannabis is Medicine.

as I'm Sparky said above ... cbd rich and lower in thc will be more helpful i would think .. obs its personal and individual but is often stated high thc and certain 'sativa' types in particular may not help anxiety but the opposite.. high cbd and 'indica' types typically work best for anxiety

if u still want a 'high' i'd try a 1:1 ratio strain with equal thc and cbd, or something like recommended above if less so..

Hope u find some success soon !

Time to pop some more beans 😗

@im_sparky yes the book is a great read,

I particularly liked the explanation from the guy who had ADHD and how cannabis helped is brain to slow down so that he could concentrate and focus.

Genesis 1:29-God said, “Look, I have given you all the plants that have grain for seeds and all the trees whose fruits have seeds in them. They will be food for you.
