Medical Cannabis for Anxiety and PTSD During COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected all of us somehow. The fear of widespread illness, the lack of human interaction or potential job loss, can cause more stress, fear and anxiety than most “normal” days. This causes many people to feel overwhelmed and afraid, especially those who already suffer from daily anxiety or PTSD. Rest assured, New Jersey Alternative Health is here to help. Contact us today for your virtual appointment if you think you may be a candidate for medical marijuana to help ease your anxiety.

In normal circumstances, in moderation, anxiety is not a bad thing. It is our body’s natural response to coping with threats to our safety or wellbeing. Anxiety may help motivate us to make significant changes in our lives such as working harder, improving our relationships, or setting personal goals for ourselves. However, on the same note, too much anxiety can be crippling to day-to-day functionality. In fact, roughly 18 percent of the population, or 40 million adults, suffer from anxiety-related disorders. While prescription drugs work for some to treat anxiety, cannabidiol (CBD) continues to grow in popularity.

Unlike medical marijuana, CBD does not make you feel high. CBD is known to counteract many of THC’s negative effects and can help treat panic disorders, social phobia, PTSD, generalized anxiety disorder, OCD, and more! New Jersey Alternative Health is the top choice for helping treat anxiety with medical marijuana in Northern New Jersey.
