Using cannabis for social anxiety disorder (SAD) is a controversial topic. Although cannabis has been approved for medical use in Canada and recreational use in certain US states, there is still some confusion about its use in the treatment of SAD. While some research supports cannabis use for its treatment, studies on its long-term effect still need to be conducted. If you live with SAD and you are considering cannabis as a treatment option, you might feel confused about whether it is going to help or not. This article will provide you with some basic information that will help you make an informed decision, whether cannabis might be helpful to you and the best way to get the best result. Can Cannabis Reduce Social Anxiety? A 2015 review supported cannabidiol (CBD) as a treatment of SAD when administered over a short period. However, the long-term effect of using cannabis for social anxiety disorder treatment is not known. Additionally, THC and CBD combinations have been shown to improve sleep duration and quality for those suffering from SAD. So cannabis can help to reduce social anxiety disorder in the short term and it can help you sleep better. A study found that frequent marijuana users have a high prevalence of anxiety disorders while patients with anxiety disorders use cannabis relatively more. This means there is a relationship between using cannabis and social anxiety disorder. What is however not clear is which comes first. Effect of CBD on Social Anxiety Disorder CBD has been shown to work as an anxiety-reducing drug and it helps to increase blood flow in the cingulate cortex (plays a role in helping to interpret the reactions of others). They also experienced a decrease in the parahippocampal gyrus and hippocampus, which are critical in recalling and forming memories. Also, the inferior temporal gyrus helps you perceive faces. CBD is also believed to inhibit the uptake of anandamide. Substances that inhibit the uptake of anandamide help to prevent anxiety. Also, all the areas of the brain involved in anxiety contain CB1 receptors that are indirectly involved in the effect of CBD. Overall, CBD may help patients to suppress unpleasant memories of embarrassment or anxiety. Risks of Using Cannabis for Anxiety Daily cannabis use can cause negative consequences for some people and it has the potential of intensifying existing feelings. The negative effects may even be greater if you use it in a stressful or unfamiliar setting. For instance, if you have never used cannabis before or you are already depressed. Research has also shown that it may be safer to use a vaporizer or ingest cannabis than smoking it directly. So if you are in a legal state you can slide into a dispensary and ask for marijuana with a high CBD and low THC ratio, like two to one or even as much as 18 to 1 depending on how sensitive you are. If you are prone to anxiety, the last thing you want to do is to indiscriminately share a joint with someone when you don’t know what kind of marijuana is in it. I mean if it’s a really high level of THC you will be thrown into the twilight zone. If you want to be sociable and partake of some flour bring your own stuff and share that with the gang.
The National Centre for Health Statistic Survey (NCHS) reported that the awareness for hypertension increased from 53% over 1960 -1962 to 89% over 1988 -1991. While the percentage of patients receiving treatment for high blood pressure has increased from 35% to 79% during this period. With the evolution of treatment and public awareness, one would expect an appreciable decrease in the statistics of people living with high blood pressure but this has not been so. Recently, the World Health Organization estimates that over 40% of people worldwide still have high blood pressure, with only 13.2 percent of the global population having their high blood pressure (BP) controlled. Lots of controversies and misunderstood facts within the world of cannabis, but new discoveries coming all around the world has contributed a great effort in linking high blood pressure with cannabis treatment. What is high BP? When the heart beats, blood is pumped round the body through a closed circulatory system involving the vessels (veins and the arteries). As the blood circulates it pushes and exerts a pressure as it pushes against the walls/sides of the blood vessels. This particular pressure is the blood pressure. Usually measured in (mmHg) and is written as two numbers (120/80mmHg). Blood pressure is said to be high when it exerts or put extra strain on the blood vessels (arteries) and the heart which can lead to numerous cardiovascular disease such as stroke, heart attack. Numerically, it is said to be a consistent increase from (120/80mmHg) to (140/90mmHg) or higher, over a number of weeks. Can high BP be treated? When considering the facts and statistics above, question like this are inevitable! Various factors were considered in the management of high blood pressure, from lifestyle modification such as regular exercise, eating healthy diet, reduction in sodium intake and reduction of stress to pharmacological treatment like using of ACE inhibitors, calcium channel blockers, thiazide diuretics, but on the rise and gaining more awareness due to the ongoing research is the use of cannabis when consumed at the right amount, is medically proven to have a beneficial effect on high blood pressure. Is cannabis really effective? Few subjects that can stir up stronger emotions among researchers, scientist and doctors than how effective is use of cannabis? Cannabis which is well known for their prominent psychoactive properties, but their cardiovascular effects were also recognized as early as the 1960s. Certain test were conducted on laboratory animals, it was seen that cannabis open up the blood vessels in those animals, allowing the easy flow of blood thus reducing the elevated blood pressure. Also, research done on human has shown that upon vaporizing cannabis heart rate slows down 5-10 minutes after a transient rise in the heart rate all of which are important in the reduction of high blood pressure. How does cannabis act on blood pressure? Recent findings implicates the endogenous cannabinoid system involving CB1 receptor( found in the brain and peripheral nervous system) majorly, in the process by which cannabis lowers high blood pressure. A case study was carried out on 2 different mice, one with a knocked out CB1 receptor and the other CB1 receptor was left intact. Both were later subjected to cannabis intake, the hypotensive effect was noticed in intact mouse but lacking in knocked out mouse. This experiment proves that CB1 receptor which is a site of action for (cannabinoid and THP), both of which are product contained within cannabis has a function in regulation and modulation of blood pressure. It is also of a great interest to know that during the first consumption of cannabis, there is an increase in blood pressure and heart rate, be sure to feel this by putting your hand over your chest, so it’s safe to say cannabis have a stressful introduction to the body. But after some couple of weeks, the body develop tolerance towards this, cannabis then helps to influence series of function (like reduction of blood pressure). This action is majorly due to the vasodilation effect on the veins. Meaning, the veins expand when you consume cannabis allowing more blood to flow through the vessels into the heart, a way of reducing blood pressure. But the heart has to compensate for this increase in blood volume by beating faster (increase in heart rate) to balance the pressure available in the arteries. Further research on cannabis effect on blood pressure Cannabis was found to contain THC and CBD, with most researches focusing primarily on THC, the psychoactive component in cannabis, and this cast various doubts in cannabis usage. How will I then treat my high blood pressure without having this ecstasy feeling that comes from taking cannabis? Questions like this pose a serious threat to using cannabis in the treatment of high blood pressure. Recently, studies were carried out on CBD (cannabidiol) one of the prevalent chemical compound present in cannabis plant. In contrast to THC, CBD is totally non-psychoactive compound. Hence, no threat of “getting high” during treatment. Another interesting information from a recent research suggests that posture during cannabis consumption can influence the effect of cannabis on blood pressure. Taking cannabis while sitting down or lying down experience a transient increase in blood pressure, but drops upon standing. There is a level at which you stand up though, because standing up too quickly can cause a sudden drop which can make you feel dizzy. But a different case scenario is seen when you take cannabis while standing which there is a drop in blood pressure without any initial spike Conclusion The effect associated with usage of cannabis to treat high blood pressure is complex due to the biphasic reaction. Firstly, there is a rise in heart rate and blood pressure slightly immediately or few seconds after intake of cannabis this slight rise can happen for some few min or hours, followed by a reduction in heart rate and blood pressure. Also, from cannabis vasodilation effect on blood vessels, blood flow easily and with less pressure. For years now psychoactive cannabis has been the centre of studies. But recently, research has helped in studies of CBD (cannabinoid), a non-psychoactive compound of cannabis which has a vasodilation effect without “getting high”.
Today, we are tackling the question of whether cannabis affect the immune system and how does it strengthen it or weaken it. This is a very hard topic to get a good answer to and you will get very different answers depending on which source you read. We have known for decades that cannabinoids within the cannabis plant can do cool stuff related to the immune system like decrease inflammation. Inflammation is just a defensive immune response that the body frequently uses; the only problem is cannabis achieves that result by suppressing parts of the immune system. Now, if you have arthritis or multiple sclerosis or even lupus, you may be in a situation where you actually want your immune system to be turned down, and that is why cannabis works terrific for any of those medical conditions, but obviously suppressing your immune system isn’t always desirable. Our inflammatory responses legitimately act as the body’s defense mechanism in most cases. Adding up all that info, it makes sense that when you are sick with the flu or you have a fever for some reason smoking up before the fever is gone while you are still fighting it can make that fever come right back and hard. People have made that mistake and if you have had that happen please leave me a comment because I would love to know exactly how common that is. For me, it works like clockwork if I am sick or I am just done getting over the flu. Also, you drop your immune system more if you are combusting cannabis rather than eating or vaporizing it simply because inhaling any kind of smoke makes your immune system work harder. That information was stumbled upon years ago during research observing various medical cannabis patients and that is why edibles eventually became so popular with medical users. The real question is how much does cannabis weaken your immune system? By all appearances, it’s not an enormous amount considering chemotherapy or AIDS patients can still use cannabis even though their immune systems are already compromised. The benefits of achieving a heightened appetite during chemo for example simply outweigh the disadvantage of a slightly lowered immune system. Now some of you out there might wonder if that means you will get sick more often if you smoke weed a lot? Well, this isn’t 100% consistent since some people smoke tons of weed and never even sneeze or have a stuffy nose. The immune system is a kind of complex thing and it varies from person to person but for most people heavy cannabis consumption equals lowered immune system. More often, it equals a somewhat higher frequency of getting sick especially if your immune system is on the weak side, to begin with. What really increases your odds of catching a cannabis-related cold isn’t the actual cannabis or its impact on the immune system, it’s the social habits. There is this strange social phenomenon across cannabis culture of sharing joints, pipes, bonds and so forth. It used to be more prevalent during prohibition but it’s still very much a thing. It is actually a really weird norm if you stand back and think about it for a while. You would never share a beer or a cigarette or even a chapstick amongst a group of half a dozen random people at a party but people do that all the time with cannabis. I discourage that kind of thing simply because it can pass colds and cases of flu back and forth like nothing. I always encourage people to have their own pipes, bongs, and vaporizer pieces, especially during the flu seasons. Also Read - Cannabis Growing Laws in Canada
