Anxiety vs Smoke: What will end your life quicker?

Discussion in 'Apprentice Marijuana Consumption' started by Kush Smokker, Aug 8, 2011.

  1. Long story short:
    I've been smoking for 10 years.
    I have bad anxiety problems and weed helps like you wouldn't believe. However, I have asthma.
    I'm 24, should I quit before it's too late?
  2. You can get a medical marijuana license to CURE/TREAT asthma. So, unless that's complete BS, keep blazin bro.
  3. what? dude if your worried just vape...
  4. Make edibles. Thats awesome it helps your anxiety. Complete opposite for me. Weird how that works
  5. A license doesnt change anything. Its still weed...
  6. It helps my anxiety sometimes. In the middle of a panic attack it will stop it. But it doesn't stop it all day.

  7. lol, I think he was just mentioning that you can get a medical card for asthma.:cool:
  8. Yeah I'd have to say vape, its healthier for you and it conserves weed.

    No, you do not have to quit smoking weed for asthma. Marijuana has actually been proven to treat asthma and many medical marijuana patients use it. People assume smoking worsens the asthma because cigarettes do. This is actually because the nicotine constricts the airways. On the other hand, marijuana will not. THC dilates the airways, allowing easier breathing. (That is why you never here of marijuana smokers getting emphysema) However, I do recommend a vaporizer. Smoke is never good for the lungs especially if they are already vulnerable, plus, vaporizing is a lot more efficient.

    The reason marijuana treats your anxiety unlike many other people:

    1. Your weed has a higher CBD to THC ratio (indica)
    2. Your body reacts to the CBD more than most people

    CBD is actually anti-psychotic and treats anxiety. THC is mostly hallucinogenic which can worsen anxiety. Having weed with too much THC and little CBD (Sativa) is what causes anxiety in most people.

  10. yeah same here...i get more anxiety from smoking weed. but i know some of my friends say it helps there anxiety.
  11. Keep smoking or vape or edibles, I have really bad anxiety from OCD, but weed works amazingly for anxiety just carefree there's nothing else that works as good. If thats how you feel than I'd never stop its not worth having to deal with anxiety. Get a card if you can, if it helps don't stop.
  12. I need to get some weed for my fucking anxiety.

    OP have you noticed any changes in your asthma?
  13. I play on living a long ass time and ill smoke all my life.
  14. So this is the theory... I smoked a little too much indica last night and actually got a little paranoid. Like a feeling of pending doom...

    Some people say sativa helps their anxiety more because they are not left alone in their thoughts like indica leaves you.
  15. life will end your life

  16. Specific strains of weed completely eliminate my social anxieties and various forms of depression. It just so happens to be that sativa dominant strains help me like none other because of this very reason.

  17. I'm sorry I have to be the one to bust your bubble, but it's strians with high cannabidiol that help with the anxiety, and indica strains have more cannabidiol than sativas:eek:

    Difference Between Indica and Sativa | Difference Between | Indica vs Sativa

    "Anecdotal research has shown that indica strains have more anti anxiety effects, provide better sleeping aid, more relaxant, relieve pain, muscle spasms and tremors. Sativa strains have been shown to be stimulants, with higher psychoactive effects."

  18. Great link man but let's not make this a set in stone theory. I think it's different for everyone.
  19. Use healthier alternatives for ingesting marijuana. For example, using a vaporizer or making edibles.
