Yep but he has an anxiety disorder, meaning it's not overcoming his fears. It's a mental illness that will always be there.

If you haven't yet, please take a few minutes to watch this video. I coached a girl who had anxiety disorder, as well as bipolar disorder too, and it's very REAL. This video gives you a little glimpse in to what it's like living with these kinds of disorders.
100% agree. I used to work for Child Protection and a true disorder can be dealt with. The thing I like is not only is he coping with it in a healthy manner but he's also bringing attention to a real serious issue in a positive light.

That draft video was pretty great. Don't they fly to games in the NCAA?

I also didn't get the weed remarks. The only time I've ever had panic attacks is when stoned.

Good luck to the guy.

Anxiety about what while on pot? Anyway, it's a known "treatment" for anxiety.

OK I give. The Medical cannabis wiki talks about it being used for anxiety attacks.

It sounds like certain strains of weed are more likely to cause anxiety than others.

Cannabis indica may have a CBD:THC ratio 4–5 times that of Cannabis sativa. Cannabis strains with relatively high CBD:THC ratios are less likely to induce anxiety than vice versa.

Medical cannabis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Just to clarify, the only real differences with medical cannabis and street cannabis is that you know what your getting from the medical cannabis and it's typically more pure.

Go to a medical cannabis site like leafly.com and it will explain most of the questions you have. It's a site that explains the varieties of cannabis, their various strains and of course their medical uses and main side effects.

The variety called Indica, which sounds like India, is used typically at night as one of the main side effects is drowsiness - ideal for anxiety cause if you don't sleep it can lead to other issues. There are dozens of various strains of Indica - some do cause anxiety most don't.

Another main variety is Sativa which is used typically during the day as the predominate side effect is being hyper or alert. A number of the strains of Sativa are used for anxiety and stress without causing sleepiness as Indica does. This one you have to be careful as accelerated hyperness or alertness could trigger an anxiety attack.

There is a 3rd variety, Ruderalis but it's not used much.

There is a man made 4th variety and thats a hybrid of Indica and Sativa which for the most part is the best of both worlds.

There is quite a science behind each strain, in fact there are world renowned competitions for those that derive specific strains for specific ailments. So if one suffers an anxiety disorder there are specific strains that you would take for day or night use.

The medical benefits of cannabis are ridiculous tbh and really should be legalized for those who want a natural approach to relief from pain, anxiety, stress, migraines, etc.

Of course the only reason I know such things is from google :cookie:

Just an interesting tidbit.....in Canada the revenue from the cannabis industry is almost 2x greater than the forestry industry now - legal and other wise and into the billions.
