Anxiety is a familiar world problem. In the U.S around 40 million people are suffering from anxiety every year. It makes about 18 percent of the total population. Anxiety is said to be a form of psychiatric disorder. Dealing with stress is not just worrying, but also makes life difficult for the victim and those around the victim. Research indicates that both the environment and genetics play a crucial role in the development of an anxiety disorder.
Many people fall to cannabis to treat this condition as research shows that it is an effective treatment. However, cannabis and anxiety have a slightly twisted relationship. Just as it can treat anxiety, when you use it excessively, it can worsen the situation. It may be due to the active ingredients readily found in cannabis. These are THC and CBD. At low doses, they are responsible for helping treat anxiety.
THC is the main component in marijuana and is what makes you high. On the other hand, CBD does not have as much impact. However, researchers say that the higher the levels of CBD, the better it is for the users with anxiety since it acts on the receptors of serotonin.
Additionally, different varieties of cannabis in the market carry their chemical compositions and effects. Some variations may reduce anxiety, while others may increase it. Here are some of the strains you need to acquire to battle against stress.
Nordle CBD Feminised Seeds
The Nordle CBD Feminised Seeds is the high-end version of the Mr. Nice Afghani strain. It contains a THC to CBD ratio of 1:1. The cannabis seed grows with a Christmas tree shape and is from the Indica family. When you grow it in an indoor grow tent, it will remain in the flowering stage for 8 to 10 weeks and deliver a yield of about 500 gr/m2. It has thick buds that carry a fruity aroma with some notes of garlic or chives. When you grow the seeds outdoors, in the northern latitudes, you should be ready to harvest as October ends.
White Widow (fem)
The White Widow start to flower when you reduce the amount of light they receive per day. They thrive in indoor environments and can grow to a height of 2 to 4 feet. The plant’s flower for 8 to 9 weeks producing buds of high quality. The seed is a hybrid strain that originates back in the Netherlands during the 1990s. It is a cross between the South Indian Indica and the South American Sativa. It contains an abundant amount of THC that calms you down due to its powerful and lasting mental buzz. The White Widow I easy going and does not have any adverse effects.
Girl Scout Cookies Extreme (fem)
The Girl Scout Cookies Extreme is excellent for beginners as the seeds are highly resistant to pests, diseases, molds, and infestations. It can grow to a height of 66 inches and is suitable for both outdoor and indoor growth settings. The strain originated from California and is a mix of The OG Kush (an Indica) and the Durban Poison (a Sativa). It can deliver an immediate rush of euphoria and happiness.
Can Cannabis Replace Anti-anxiety medication?
A publication made in the medical journal Psychopharmacology noted that daily users of cannabis reacted rather bluntly when they are in a high-stress environment after abstaining from marijuana for some time. Users that have never taken weed felt anxious and had high levels of cortisol, the hormone responsible for stress. Addicts to cannabis were reported to have lower levels of anxiety while their cortisol levels were the same as when not under stress.
Doctors prescribe treatments such as Xanax and Klonopin to patients suffering from acute anxiety to offer them short term relief. They are useful during that brief period but leave behind side effects such as confusion, fatigue, and disorientation. The patient can as well develop tolerance and dependency on the drug. More than 8000 Americans died in 2015 due to taking an overdose of benzodiazepines.
Some drugs are prescribed for the long term relief of anxiety called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). Such include Zoloft and Prozac. They bring about several side effects that include insomnia, low libido, drowsiness, headaches, and an increase in suicidal thoughts.
Compared to all the other drugs, medical marijuana has the upper hand since it is useful and has relatively fewer side effects. A publication made in the pharmacological Research identifies cannabidiol (CBD) to enhance the efficacy of the GABA neurotransmitter while working to reduce the impact of cortisol in the body.
You can treat symptoms of anxiety through psychotherapy and medication. Self-medication by using marijuana can help you deal with stress for the long term. However, due to federal restrictions, it is not established. Before using cannabis, you should first consult with your doctor. You should remember that cannabis reacts differently to everyone. The first step to acquiring the right weed strains to fight your anxiety is identifying your sensitivity and tolerance to the weed. Secondly, you need to experiment with different varieties to identify the one that reacts positively with your symptoms. We hope that by following the above, you can determine what to look for whenever searching for an excellent strain to help solve your anxiety issues.

With more and more states legalizing the growing of CANNABIS worldwide, many people are taking the advantage and growing the crop for both medical and recreational purposes. The legalization has seen an upsurge of home growers planting the weed with confidence and pride. Majority of these home growers grow their weed indoors and they use every available space to realize their dream.
It gets even easier as there are many weed indoor growing resources in the market today. Besides a GROW TENT, a grow room, those with limited space are growing their weed in Closets and Cabinets. The difference between closets and cabinets is that closets are slightly larger and give you more space for better crop growth and more plants. Cabinets are size constrained but they are also a great option.
Growing marijuana in a closet also ensures that you do restrict yourself to smaller strains only such as the indica. You can plant both INDICA and SATIVA without having to worry about the height of the crops. Just like growing your weed in a grow tent, growing in a closet also requires the same kind of resources and equipment. Your crops will need light, water, nutrients, ventilation, good humidity and temperature levels and a good airflow.

THC, CBD and other cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant used to get the most press about their potential medical efficacies, but lately, terpenes are coming into the spotlight thanks to their role in controlling your cannabis experience. You can think of cannabinoids as the gas pedal and terpenes as the steering wheel — it’s the terpenes that determine where you’re going.
Terpenes are the compounds responsible for most of the scent and taste of plants such as lavender (linalool), rosemary (alpha-pinene) and hops (myrcene) and even cannabis. True Terpenes is an industry leader in supplying terpenes to brands in the cannabis, cosmetic, supplement, food or beverage fields.
However, the cannabis plant is actually much more complex than just cannabinoids and terpenes. What does that mean? We’re talking about things like esters, ketones, flavonoids and other compounds that create the flavors, aromas and tastes that are found in cannabis and other plants.
Terpenes may be the favorite aromatic compounds at the Portland-based terpene-blend-creating company True Terpenes, but they’re not the only compounds that do the trick. For example, esters are known for being found in pineapple and are also responsible for those same flavor notes in several cannabis varieties. However, while terpenes are heavily explored and variations in cultivars have been noted, there is still a lot of unknowns in regard to the diversity of these remaining compounds in cannabis.
“We love the cannabis plant and all the diverse compounds that can be found there,” True Terpenes Founder Ben Cassiday said. “The entire spectrum of compounds is why the entourage effect is so powerful.”
True Terpenes’ new infused strain profiles bring these added dimensions of flavor and effects by infusing terpene profiles with these additional compounds, gathered from other botanical sources. You can taste the extra layers of citrus in the Forbidden Fruit or the sweet chocolate mint of Thin Mint Cookies. The newest offerings in the Infused line up are Lemon Jack, Strawberry Cough, Grape Ape, Maui Wowie, and Purple Punch.
Utilizing the added ketones, esters, flavonoids and other phytochemicals has also unchained True Terpenes’ team of “terpigicians” to explore a whole new world of flavor. These explorations have led to some of the most nuanced profiles available. It also led to the creation of an entirely new product category at True Terpenes: TERP Flavors.
TERP Flavors are a terpene-based flavor solution similar to True Terpenes’ Strain Profiles, except with a focus on more common flavors like green apple or grape instead of mimicking cannabis flavor, like Granddaddy Purple or OG Kush. Terp Flavors also contain a mixture of the additional phytochemicals.
Each TERP Flavor comes in both an “up” and “down” formulation, which will either put a little pep in your step or help you unwind respectively.
Of course, for the purists in the cannabis industry, True Terpenes still carries their Precision Strain Profiles that precisely replicate the analytical testing data from cannabis flowers. True Terpenes also recently launched 10 new precision profiles: Jack Herer, Skywalker OG, Bubba Kush, King Louis XIII, God’s Gift, Agent Orange, Lemon Kush, Mendo Breath, Fire OG and Northern Lights.
Although True Terpenes has an extensive collection of flavors, we all have a unique palette and imagination. Why have the same blend as everyone else when you can make your own? To help you find your flavor, True Terpenes suggests blending two or three of their products together. Mix Grape Terp Flavor with their OG Kush Precision Profile to create Grape Kush. Feeling a bit more patriotic? Perhaps you’ll make your own American Dream out of Blue Dream and the Strawberry MCTxTerps Flavor. There are more than 400,000 flavor possibilities utilizing just True Terpenes products.
Whether you’re a cannabis processor, a hemp company, brewer, chef or just use flavors at home, it’s up to you to make something new.
