Yo, what’s good? It’s ya boy Dan, and today we’re talking about anxiety and weed. Now, ya’ll know that anxiety affects everyone differently, and some folks would rather go the natural route to deal with it instead of popping prescription pills. So, what’s the move? Well, my peeps, the answer might just be cannabis.
I did some digging and talked to some doctors and folks who struggle with anxiety, and we’ve concluded that Harlequin is the best strain to kick that anxiety to the curb.
Now, you might be wondering how this all works. Anxiolytic drugs are used to manage anxiety disorders, but did ya’ll know that certain terpenes and cannabinoids found in weed also have anxiolytic properties? That means there’s a perfect strain out there for all of us to calm our nerves.
And listen up, it’s important to know the difference between Indica and Sativa strains. Some strains might make you even more anxious, while others will have you feeling like a champ. Most people prefer Indica strains to treat their anxiety, but if that ain’t working for you, try out some hybrid strains.
Alright, let’s get down to business. Here are the top 10 best weed strains for anxiety relief:

Now, let’s talk about terpenes. When terpenes combine with our endocannabinoid system (ECS), we feel specific effects. The best terpenes for anti-anxiety benefits are limonene, caryophyllene, pinene, myrcene, humulene and linalool.
And listen up y’all – strains with high THC could make things worse if taken in high doses. Always start with a lower dose of high THC cannabis strains if you’re dealing with anxiety or stress.
So always consult with a doctor before trying anything new and find the weed strain that works best for you. Cannabis might just be the key to managing your anxiety once and for all. Peace out!
