Medical cannabis in the form of cannabidiol (CBD) has recently captured the spotlight as an alternative or complementary treatment for anxiety disorders. Studies show that the endocannabinoid system plays an important role in regulating anxiety, fear and stress responses by regulating our behavioural response to stressful stimuli.
Anxiety, worry and stress are all a natural part of most people’s everyday lives. But simply experiencing anxiety or stress in and of itself does not mean that a disorder exists nor that one should seek professional help.
In fact, anxiety is an important and sometimes necessary warning signal of a perceived dangerous or difficult situation – the “fight or flight” response. Without it, there would be no way of anticipating and preparing for difficulties ahead. Anxiety becomes a disorder when the symptoms become chronic and interfere with a person’s daily life and ability to function.
Please contact us to begin your medical cannabis journey with specific dosing advice. As each person’s biochemistry, tolerance level and condition at hand are entirely unique, any advice that we give needs to be considerate and appropriate.
Our clients have consistently chosen MCDSA-endorsed cannabis oil over conventional medicines that have let them down. We only advocate highly-concentrated medical-grade products, derived from marijuana plant flowers, which are far superior to over-the-counter, hemp-derived supplements.

Always speak to your doctor when considering cannabis as a treatment aid. Take great care to safely store products and not expose children or pets unintentionally.
THC products are psychoactive, causing one to become “high”. These are to be used with special caution in children, pets and persons prone to anxiety or stress. Depending on the unique situation, it may be appropriate to substitute THC with non-psychoactive THCA. CBN and 1:1 oils may also cause mild psychoactive effects.
However, if products are used correctly, it may be possible to avoid the psychoactive effect entirely. Should you feel uncomfortable or have any questions at any time, our trained team of staff are on standby to attend to your concerns.
