Does Marijuana Reduce Your Social Anxiety Levels?
“Studies show that the Endocannabinoid System – the body’s natural Cannabinoid System – plays a major role in regulating anxiety. Cannabinoid Receptors – the binding sites of Cannabinoids – are highly concentrated in certain parts of the brain that are responsible for anxiety, including the amygdala and hypothalamus.”
“Interestingly, studies show that patients experience higher levels of anxiety when Cannabinoid Receptors are blocked by drugs such as rimonabant. Likewise, regular cannabis users report that marijuana helps to reduce their anxiety levels.”
