Examining How Medical Marijuana Helps Those with Anxiety
Category: General News
Tags: medical marijuana anxiety

Given that cannabis has something of a reputation for causing paranoia, especially in higher doses, it might seem counter intuitive to discuss its anxiolytic (anti-anxiety) properties, but cannabis can in fact be very effective when used for this purpose. Thousands of cultures across the globe and throughout history have used cannabis preparations in a number of different recreational, spiritual, and medical contexts.

The cannabis plant is a complicated organism. Not only does it contain a dizzying array of compounds including many different cannabinoids, but as a material it has found numerous uses, from making rope and paper, to clothes and fuel. Despite the widespread and ancient use of cannabis as a medicine, it is only relatively recently that it has gained widespread acceptance for its medical properties. While it is still illegal in much of the world, the use of medical cannabis is increasing. Some patients make use of the plant itself, others specific extracts. There are a great many cannabinoids present in cannabis. These are the compounds which bind to cannabinoid receptors in the brain and body, causing the drugs effects.

Medical Marijuana

Cannabis is now legal for medical and recreational use in many parts of the United States, and as such it is increasingly being seen on insurance claims. Those who have trained to work in medical billing and coding through organizations such as are seeing an increase in the number of claims for exams related to anxiety disorders which result in the prescription of medical marijuana.

What’s in Cannabis?

The most well known of the substances in cannabis is THC, this is the substance which is responsible for the high that cannabis causes. It has additional mechanisms of action which are useful medically, but also has the effect of creating a stimulating effect in users. High levels of THC are linked to the feelings of anxiety that cannabis causes some users. THC is only produced in female cannabis plants.

However, things are more complex than that. There is another compound in cannabis called CBD which is present in both male and female cannabis plants and does not produce a high. However, CBD does have a wide range of potential medical uses, in fact the majority of the medical effects of cannabis are mediated through CBD. CBD is also believed to act as ‘a break’ on some of the effects of THC. Cannabis strains with higher CBD content are known to have more relaxing effects on users. This compound could therefore be useful in treating anxiety.


The body produces a number of cannabinoids naturally, and these are known as endocannabinoids. These compounds have roles to play in the regulation of mood, appetite, sleep and pain, to name just a few processes. Medical cannabis increases the production rate of these substances which means that the body is able to perform certain functions more efficiently. Research has also shown that patients who suffer from chronic stress and anxiety have lower levels of some endocannabinoids.

Medical marijuana has shown great potential as a treatment for anxiety disorders in a variety of patients.

Bret Bogue's Secrets to Successful CBD Breeding Tags: bret bogue apothecary genetics cbd breeding

Bret Bogue, founder and president of Apothecary Genetics, has come up with 2 new strains that have tested remarkably high in CBDs.  Cannaberry and Early Wave have tested as high as 20+ percent CBD and 7% THC.  

"We have found that these strains work best with patients that are suffering from internal pain and inflammation.  We’ve also done some testing that would indicate that these strains seem to produce an even higher CBD level when grown in higher altitudes.  We believe that the cross between Early Wave and Catatonic and Catatonic X BlackBerry allows for these genetics to produce high CBD content."

"It is our hope that someday we can turn these strains into oils and tinctures that will be able to be sold over the counter in years to come."  For now, if you are interested in trying any of Apothecary Genetics high CBD strains, they are available online at or

"We are hoping by putting these strains out that people will start to breed and come up with even higher CBD strains in the future.  It has been our goal from the start of Apothecary to produce genetics that will enable further medical research and development of pharmaceutical grade cannabis.

We believe that for far too long, the cannabis industry has been held back by the pharmaceutical companies.  It is up to the genetic companies of the world to start taking control of their own genetics and help develop the modern medicines that we will apply to the pharmaceutical industry.  

In closing, we would hope with the new laws and progressive research that is going on, that the strains mentioned will be used for medications instead of using in conjunction with new developed chemo & radiation protocols to reduce the amount of treatments while increasing their dosage of cannabis."

Bret Bogue Expands Apothecary Genetics to Europe Tags: bret bogue apothecary geneitcs europe

Bret Bogue, founder of Apothecary Genetics, is pleased to announce that they are in negotiations with one of the largest distributors in Europe.

“Our plans would be to open up Apothecary Europe and have our new partners manufacture, distribute, and provide product fulfillment.  We feel joining forces with an international company will allow us to concentrate on one of the largest consumer bases as far as annual sales in the world.  Also with this unique partnership, it will allow Apothecary to turn it’s focus back on what made us what we are today with such strains as Grape Ape, Sour Grapes, Kaia Kush, Levity, SilverBack, and OG Jacure.

With all the success that we’ve had, it’s time that we offer our customers the most steady guaranteed products in the industry.  We’re also going to initiate a program for our loyal customers.  Once you purchase your souvenirs and you have received them, we will have a place on our site where you can go back and enter to win free merchandise and possibly even an opportunity for a trip to one of the destinations that Apothecary has a booth at.  What we’re asking for is that once you’ve received your gear that you tell us what type of medium you are using, what type of lights you are using, what type of fertilizer you are using, and most of all your pictures through the sprouting of the seeds to vegetating through pre-flowering and then periodic shots throughout the flowering and finally your finished product and if you have it done it, it would be nice to see the test as well.  Once you have submitted all the information online, we will select the winner.  

It is our hope by doing this to create an online dialog for any and all questions regarding cannabis and Apothecary Genetics so we can work as a team with each other to better grow and achieve maximum potential.”
