Indications – Stress

From medical point of view, there are two basic types of stress, each with distinguishable effects on psyche and body: acute and chronic.

Good and Bad

Acute stress is caused by unpredictable events or situations which make us response quickly. There is a release of stress hormones that may help us in dealing with i.e. fire accident or giving a lecture in front of an audience.

On the other hand, chronic stress means our brain releases the stress hormones on regular basis and this negatively affects our mental and physical state. In fact, chronic stress may contribute to a whole range of serious diseases, such as heart disease, type II diabetes, high blood pressure etc.

Green Cure

If you search for “stress” on Cannapedia.cz, you will find hundreds of cannabis strains that are supposed to relieve stress. People have been medicating with cannabis in order to suppress stressful feelings for centuries and many studies and patients testimonies from past 20–30 years confirm the fact that cannabinoids (mainly CBD and THC) have stress-relieving, anti- anxiety and antidepressant properties.

However, panic attacks, stress and anxiety have been identified as immediate effects of THC intoxication, especially among inexperienced users, or individuals suffering from mental disorders (or with genetic predisposition to them).
