What Marijuana Strains Help with Stress?

Life is going to life. Stress is a form of our bodies flight or fight response when handling external or internal events. Our brains will run amuck if we allow them to and will start telling us the wildest things that aren’t supportive of our mental health. People don’t know how to handle themselves when stress happens so they often turn to heavy medications. 

Can Marijuana help? Many research studies have been conducted asking the same question. Several studies show that high THC and low CBD will reduce stress. Some people experience anxiety when smoking, while others don’t. It really comes down to finding the right strain that works for your body and not against it. What’s the right marijuana strain for you?
