One of the biggest reasons I indulge in smoking marijuana and using THC hast to deal with managing my anxiety. When I first started smoking in high school, that wasn’t the reason I fell into that lifestyle. I simply just liked getting high.
Things changed with experience and maturity. I am thankful I can look at it as a treatment aspect now.
One thing that I have noticed with smoking is that I have to do it when I know there will be minimal movements. For instance, i used to smoke before social gatherings and stuff like that to help calm down my anxiety and that stupid voice in my head. However, I noticed that it slow down my reaction process and physical capabilities Which made my anxiety even worse.
I thought that I would have a lot more trouble going to the public gym or anywhere else in public after I made that realization. I couldn’t be high and work out, although my brain was fine and it relaxed me, my movements were even more awkward and I felt I had to try harder.
Now, instead of doing it all the time, I only smoke at times of relaxation. For example, when I get home or Lang in bed about to go to sleep, that’s the best time for me.
What about you? Have you noticed a change in your body when you are high? For those of you who don’t smoke, are you curious about treating anxiety with medical marijuana?
