Cannabis for stress, anxiety and depression
A study reveals that cannabis reduces stress, anxiety and depression levels by 50%
The depression It is a frequent mental disorder that affects more than 300 million of people in the world in 2018, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). For its part, the anxiety affects more than 284 million of people, data collected by Our World in data in 2017.
A study by the Department of Psychology at Washington State University has revealed that the Inhaled cannabis significantly reduces depression, anxiety and stress. The study, published by the Journal of Affective Disorders in August 2018, indicates that cannabis reduces up to a 50% depression levels, and 58% in the case of anxiety and stress.
The most significant results of the study were the following:
- The reduction of anxiety was greater in women than in men.
- A low THC / high CBD level reduces symptoms depression
- A high THC / high CBD level reduces levels of stress.
- Higher concentrations of THC and CBD reduce levels anxiety
According to this research, cannabis is commonly used to relieve depression, anxiety and stress. In fact, one of the most frequent reasons for cannabis use is coping with stress (Hyman and Sinha, 2009), since 72% of cannabis users who consume daily do so to relax or relieve tension (Johnston and O'Malley, 1986).
In line with these results, Webb and Webb (2014) found that 50% of medical cannabis patients who used cannabis to treat pain reported that it provided relief from anxiety and stress.
What varieties of Buddha Seeds can help you with stress, anxiety and depression?
Each cannabis plant has a genetics with a different composition, that is, different levels and combinations of cannabinoies, terpenoids, flavoinoids, etc. According to Dr. Garcia de Palau, from Kalapa Clinic, the therapeutic effect of a cannabis strain is determined by the percentage of cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and other active substances found in the different varieties or strains.
That is why each genetics generates a different psychoactivity. Thus, some sativa varieties have a euphoric and cerebral effect while the indica ones have a narcotic, sedative and physical effect. In this way, a sativa variety may work in patients with depression, while an indica variety may help in episodes of stress.
We give Buddha Seeds is a variety of indica, autoflowering, ideal predominance to induce calm and relaxation. If you opt for non-auto, Kraken It is the variety you were looking for, a highly narcotic power.
In the case of sativa varieties we recommend auto varieties Magnum or Calamity Jane Y Press, variety not Auto. With these sativa varieties of Buddha Seeds you will achieve a more euphoric and energizing effect.
Effect entourage or cannabis entourage
Occasionally, there are pathologies that cannot be treated only with a cannabinoid. The synergy between different cannabinoids produces the entourage effect, a term coined by the Israeli researcher Raphael Mechoulam and that defends that the secondary compounds in cannabis, such as terpenes, can increase the beneficial effects of THC and reduce anxiety induced by its psychoactivity . That is, the synergy of CBD and other components of cannabis with THC enhances its benefits, acting as an antagonist of adverse effects, and therefore, producing a lower toxicity that it would have with THC in isolation.
Subsequently, the American researcher Ethan B. Russo, studied how this entourage effect can be used to treat pain, inflammation, depression, anxiety, addiction, epilepsy, cancer, fungi and various infections.
But how can we know if THC or CBD predominates in a variety? This information is expressed through the ratio of both components, which is obtained with a chromatographic analysis. For example, there are varieties with a 1: 2 ratio (such as Medikit by Buddha Seeds), others with a 1: 0 ratio (such as Quasar by Buddha Seeds), the first number corresponding to THC and the second number to CBD. Although it is possible to see it the other way around, especially in Anglo-Saxon countries. The ratio information usually appears on the technical sheet of each variety.
However, we should not confuse the ratio with the percentage of CBD and THC, which corresponds to the amount of both cannabinoids in the plant.
Plants that contain a balanced ratio of THC and CBD (1: 1 ratio) have the therapeutic advantages of both components, such as the inhibition of nerve signals that are associated with pain, producing a calming effect.
Currently we can find this type of variety in many seed banks. From Buddha Seeds, with the non-autoflowering variety Morpheus we have managed to stabilize the THC and CBD ratios in a 1: 1 ratio, greater than 20% of total cannabinoids in some individuals. Morpheus obeys the purpose of Buddha Seeds to advance the research and genetics of varieties rich in CBD, as he did with Medikit.
