Anxiety: “What if this happens?”

You: “But it won’t!”

Anxiety: “But what if it does?”

If the above is your constant inner monologue, you may want to try some specific cannabis strains for your anxiety. For some people, just one puff is all they need for a worry-free and peaceful day. Others can experience heightened paranoia and anxiety from cannabis, so pay attention to strains if self-medicating. Here are some recommendations for alleviating anxiety via Leafly.

Anxiety Before Bed

When you’re all snuggled into bed and your brain decides to replay the worst memories from the past ten years—like that time you weren’t wearing underwear and your fly was down, try Black Kush. Before this one helps you catch some Zs, it’ll make you more relaxed, and hopefully settle your brain waves.

Author note: The above is a real memory.

Anxiety in Social Situations

If you’ve ever used up all of the small talk lead-ins you practiced before a party, only to forget how to say goodbye and awkwardly ghost, try Strawberry Cough. Strawberry Cough is a great solution for managing social anxieties and to balance yourself in times of elevated stress, such as carrying on a conversation IRL.

Anxiety About Anxiety

If just the thought of even having anxiety makes you even more anxious, Grandaddy Purple may be the strain for you. This one will be detectable in both your body and your mind so that you can literally chill out like your granddad. Don’t worry though you won’t feel as though you’re on your deathbed.

General Anxiety Because, Life

For generalized anxiety and for the THC-sensitive try the Cannatonic strain. The CBD profile in this strain is usually a 1:1 ratio with THC, meaning it can take the anxious edge off of your daily experience without a heavy head high.

As always, experiment slowly and be careful when self-medicating. Not everyone experiences the same effects from the same strains. If you find one that can help you stop having flashbacks to that awkward conversation all day, we’d say that’s winning!
