I'm going to a wedding this weekend where I will know very few guests. I haven't had a drink in 4 years and because of my social anxiety, I'm starting that internal dialogue justifying having ONE drink will be okay. Canabis is legal in Canada so I've been thinking of trying that to take the edge off at the wedding. All opinions/suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
Does cannabis ease social anxiety? - Anxiety and Depre...
I think cannabis is a good way to relax and take the edge off. It has helped me through many panics and it helps me when I am having a hard time sleeping. I prefer indica for this reason. When I go out and I feel like I am having social anxiety I would use a sativa. However, I have come to notice that when I use it for social anxiety it can sometimes make things worse, as I become a little more quiet and start overthinking whether or not I am being awkward. Other times, it really chills me out and helps me enjoy myself a little more by taking the edge off. If you haven't already I would give it a try first! Test out strains, brands, hybrids, different THC% to see what works best.
I am a supporter, lol. Just wanted to give you the different views that I have experienced in my time. xoxo
L-Theanine is supposed to counter the cortisol surge which occurs in the early morning. It is found in green tea or in supplement form. Many of us here have tried it but nobody I have met here so far finds it effective in countering anxiety. But I still start the day with a green tea just in case! Try it yourself, see what you think.
Cannabis is a major cause of neurosis and psychosis according to many professional medical surveys I have read. Those who love dope will tell you otherwise. But I have read too many reports on this forum from people who trace their anxiety disorders to cannabis, some even to using it just once.
The Government of Canada has much to answer for. But as I say other people will tell you it's wonderful and completely safe.
