Cannabis for Anxiety and PTSD

Cannabis for Anxiety and PTSD

Perhaps one of the more common medical recommendations for cannabis is for anxiety. This is perhaps because many conditions are associated or exacerbated by anxiety. After all, it’s not unusual for someone who’s in pain all the time to feel anxious. As for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), it was once put under the umbrella of anxiety disorders, but is now considered a “trauma- and stressor-related disorder,” according to the DSM-5 (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders).
