In the South, many patients are now following recommendations for medical marijuana for anxiety. Louisiana’s licensed dispensaries provide different forms of marijuana from the cannabis plant, which produces over a hundred cannabinoids.
The treatment method is becoming popular because various cannabinoid combinations may reduce the symptoms of anxiety and depression without the common side effects of synthetic pharmaceutical drugs
Anxiety is a state of mind that has very real consequences physically and emotionally. Why do so many patients use medical marijuana in Louisiana to alleviate stress and reduce anxiety? The best way to answer that is by a quick explanation of the various cannabinoids present in medical marijuana.
For example, two active compounds in medical marijuana are cannabidiol (CBD) and delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). These compounds bind with the natural receptors in your brain to influence your body’s responses, particularly relating to the endocannabinoid system.
Medical marijuana has been legal in Louisiana for years, but accessing it hasn’t always been easy. However, in 2016, legislators created a comprehensive medical cannabis program, and new bills in 2018 and 2020 expanded it significantly. Today, Louisiana residents experiencing a wide range of chronic and debilitating conditions can find comfort in medicinal cannabis.
Anxiety is a mental health concern that causes distress and uneasiness among patients. It is typically the body’s response to stressful or unfamiliar situations that people may find difficult to navigate.
Nearly everyone feels anxious at some point, but anxiety disorders represent an extreme and chronic form of this natural response.
Medical marijuana can help reduce symptoms of anxiety, including insomnia, the inability to fall asleep or stay asleep. Eight hours of sleep per night is critical for good health, and specific types of medical cannabis may help insomniacs enjoy higher quality and quantity of sleep.
At the proper dosage, THC and CBD can make patients feel sleepy and increase the time spent in deep sleep cycles. Patients wake up feeling refreshed, which reduces fatigue and boosts many other health-related factors in the body and mind restoring balance.
Another common symptom of anxiety is trouble concentrating because constant worry or persistent lethargy makes it more difficult to focus on mundane tasks. Certain terpene profiles can improve this ability to focus.
The University of Washington initiated a study to test the effects of cannabis on patients with anxiety and depression. Specifically, researchers wanted to see how THC and CBD impacted patients’ mental and physical health. The study’s conclusion stated that CBD showed reduced levels of anxiety with a variety of dosage amounts.
Medical marijuana is helpful for anxiety in many ways, including its ability to reduce physical symptoms, like insomnia, and trigger feelings of euphoria or relaxation through neurological interactions.
Louisiana patients are taking full advantage of the health benefits of medical marijuana, and many are seeing effective results.
As one patient said, “Marijuana has been, by far, the most effective treatment to deal with anxiety, pain, and resulting insomnia.”
Medical marijuana addresses anxiety symptoms by releasing endorphins, a chemical messenger in the body responsible for feelings of happiness or satisfaction. Increasing endorphins will lower stress levels in the same way as exercise might, helping the person feel better throughout the day.
Although there are many conventional medications to address symptoms, they often come with undesirable side effects. Thankfully, patients with anxiety can qualify for medical marijuana.
Sign up process is simple and easy to do. After answering a few questions and speaking to a Doctor I was on my way to a new and exciting way for pain and anxiety relief.
It was a very easy process!! I recommend using tele leaf to anyone who is trying to obtain their medical marijuana card!!!
Teleleaf was very professional and helpful to assist me in my recertification.
They are a great help to me. The pain I feel on a everyday basis can become overwhelming but with he help of Medicis I’ve been up walking and not some much on edge with the pain. They do help those who really are in need. The pain pills my docs gave written out for me was all wrong. Made me sick to my stomach. They had side effects like depression and anxiety along a slew of others. I’m better off with the edibles.
Easiest doctor appointment i have ever had. I totally delayed doing this for two years -so don’t let anxiety ruin it for you and do it!
The process was so easy, less than a minute for my renewal! The doctor was very nice and helpful. I have been very pleased with Teleleaf for the past 2 years.
Very friendly with great communication and quick visit. Don’t know why I waited so long to sign up!
The Dr. visit was prompt and pleasant however the Medicine Cabinet did not follow up with a notification. I had to call them a week later to find the recommendation had been received and they had failed to notifiy me.
