Studies reveal that pregnant women and mothers are more likely to be suffering from symptoms of anxiety and depression.
Well, that’s no surprise. We all understand the challenges of being a mother. Or at least, we can relate to it, in one way or the other.
What’s surprising is the fact that most mothers don’t really accept that they are having symptoms.
More so, they deny treatments and remedies to their sufferings.
It could possibly be due to anecdotal evidence we see around us as social stigmas and shaming.
Cannabis as a Treatment for Anxious Moms
The legalization of cannabis and its widespread popularity is attracting anxious mothers too.
According to a 2018 report published in The Atlantic, mothers are using marijuana to deal with everything from daily aches to stress. More so, they are using derivatives too to cope with postpartum depression, anxiety, and menstrual cramps.
Evidently, there must be some credibility in using marijuana to deal with anxiety symptoms.
If you’re a struggling mother and new to weed, it could be hard for you to decide which strains to buy.
Don’t worry. We’ve curated a list of the best weed strains for anxious mothers.
