Does using medical marijuana to help with my anxiety and sleep make my adrenals worse?
Q: Does using medical marijuana to help with my anxiety and sleep make my adrenals worse?
A: It has an overall calming effect on the body. For the best long term recovery, it’s best to allow the adrenals to heal themselves, and with that, the anxiety will go away by itself. Any symptom patching compounds must be used with great caution, especially those that are under researched, as well as those with potential addictive and withdrawal problems (including what you mentioned), and many anti-anxiety medications. Furthermore, masking the symptoms of anxiety by suppressing it may prevent you from dealing with the root cause.
