Cannabis Recommendations for Anxiety

At Strains Dispensary Perris, our knowledgeable budtenders know that cannabis can both alleviate anxiety and might increase anxiety among some clients.

Sativa strains, known to increase anxiety after smoking among some users with a high-THC and low-CBD profile, might not be a good option.

 Indica strains, known to cause heavier sedation for most users, are usually preferred for those wanting anxiety relief.

However, our years of experience also guide us here at Strains Dispensary Perris. A lot of the time, we recommend trial and error, starting slow, consulting a physician, and practicing patience in finding the right strain and cannabis product for treating your anxiety.

Cannabis Strains & Products Commonly Used for Anxiety

We carry a selection of effective cannabis products for treating anxiety in the strains known to help alleviate it. When a client asks us about strains and products commonly purchased to reduce stress among our customers, we generally point them in this direction:  

  • Jack Herer – A THC-dominate strain with a uniquely balanced cannabinoid profile helps deliver ideal effectiveness for those with anxiety. We carry several Jack Herer-based products, including flower, concentrate, and vaporizer cartridges.
  • Purple Punch & Granddaddy Purple – Purple genetics are sought after for anxiety relief due to the unique cannabinoid balance and terpene profile. We carry a range of Purple strain products including concentrate, flower, cartridges, and Moonrocks.
  • Remedy – offering the popular 1:1 ratio of THC to CBD, Remedy products are popular for treating anxiety and we carry a selection of products including Remedy Elite Indica concentrateRemedy Elite 1:1 CBN/CBD tincture, and edible Sour Jamberry Gummiez

Cannabis for Anxiety Research

Cannabis is fundamentally unique when it comes to anxiety. In essence, some users prefer cannabis as an effective treatment that reduces stress. In contrast, others report an increase in anxiety after consuming THC. A study conducted by Kosiba, Maisto & Ditre (2019) found that 50% of medical cannabis patients use cannabis to treat anxiety, which is the second most common reason behind the pain. This study suggests the efficacy of cannabis to be an effective therapy for anxiety. However, we also know that anecdotal evidence strongly suggests that high-THC products might increase anxiety in some patients. For those susceptible to high-THC stress, we usually recommend a cannabis strain and product with a 1:1 balance of THC to CBD or a low-THC and high-CBD product.
