Anxiety is a normal response to a stressful situation, particularly for patients being treated for cancer. However, when anxious thoughts become overpowering and interfere with day-to-day life, treatment should be explored. Anxiety has been linked with increasing feelings of pain while also impacting appetite, sleep and triggering nausea or vomiting.
Medical cannabis can provide relief with anxiety and fear related behaviours. The cannabinoids produce an anxiolytic-like effect, often bringing relief and calm to a patient when low doses of THC and CBD are prescribed.
