When I was pregnant with my daughter I was diagnosed with generalized anxiety/panic disorder by Dr. Misry (I shit you not) who looked very bored and followed her quick diagnosis with a suggestion that I buy her book. I didn’t buy her book but I did do everything I could to manage my mental health. I saw a therapist and worked on managing my thoughts.
But hoooboy when you have kids generalized anxiety just comes as a package deal! Their health and well being is always on your mind, everything is amplified from financial concerns to nutrition, their physical health and if they’re happy at school and just happy in general. You’re forever worried about their safety and every decision you make has their well being on your mind and on and on it goes. It can drive you mad when you find your own health neglected and your relationship is suffering because you’re just too exhausted and you just need some balance, some ease of mind. Help, you need help and sometimes that comes but most often it’s all you.
This is where cannabis can step in as that much needed help. Especially in the form of CBD. This miracle cannabinoid can help to ease your anxiety and allow you to settle down your thoughts. Thinking logically is hard with a brain that’s so taxed but when you feel calmer it’s much easier to make good decisions and think rationally.
THC can also help to lift your mood, I find low doses of THC and high dose of CBD a good combo however in the day CBD can do the trick. Think of it like the natural supplement Bachs Rescue Remedy. You can take CBD in a similar fashion, in a tincture however pills work well and last longer or you can find CBD only strains you can vape/smoke.
There’s other ways cannabis can help you calm your mind without taking THC, for example a bath bomb infused with cannabis is absolutely fabulous and very relaxing. Combine that with a CBD pill or tincture and you’ll feel better. Topicals will be entering the market late 2019 or early 2020.
