Calming Anxiety & Stress with Cannabis
Jun

Calming Anxiety & Stress with Cannabis

In this interactive workshop we will discuss how to treat anxiety & stress with cannabis.

Are you feeling anxious and stressed? You have a lot of company. Anxiety often creates the feeling of panic, uneasiness and fear. While anxiety can be a normal part of life, anxiety disorders now affect over 40 million Americans—that’s 18% of the population.

The good news is cannabis can also have a direct effect by lessening the intense feelings of anxiety. New research shows that when patients are treated with cannabis, not only did their subjective levels of stress decrease but so did biological markers such as cortisol levels. This happens because compounds in the plant, such as cannabidiol (CBD), stimulate the endocannabinoid system’s CB1 receptor.

In this interactive discussion, HelloMD’s co-founder Pamela Hadfield will speak with Alison Ettel, the Founder of Treatwell, to learn the “what” and the “how” of treating anxiety and stress with cannabis. We will discuss how to manage anxiety and stress with cannabis

Some of the questions we will cover in this workshop:

How does cannabis work within our bodies?
Why does cannabis work to alleviate anxiety and stress?
What part do cannabinoids play in the treatment of anxiety?
How does cannabis help anxiety in lieu of pharmaceuticals?
What cannabis products work best in the treatment of anxiety?
Do I need to be “high” in order to treat my anxiety and stress?
Alison Ettel has worked with patients that suffer from anxiety and stress across CA and has anecdotally seen the results that cannabis may provide.

This fireside chat will be followed by an audience Q&A where everyone has a chance to ask their questions.
