As someone who has suffered from anxiety since she was in university, I know how truly crippling it can be. Pair it with another mental disorder, such as depression, and it can be overwhelming simply trying to get through the day. Many of our customers come to us looking to ease their anxiety and many have had little to no luck with traditional pharmaceutical medications. The side effects of anxiety medication can be extremely harmful and we are on a mission to help those who want to transition away from medication find healthier, safer alternative that truly work.
Everyone’s anxiety presents differently and, as such, the cannabis products used to cope with anxiety will differ from person to person. Depending on how you’re feeling in a given day, you may choose different cannabis products to help ease your anxiety.
The following cannabis product recommendations are meant to be a starting point. If you would like help deciding which products would be best suited for you and your anxiety, please email us at [email protected]
If you are someone who suffers from generalized anxiety, that is always present and bubbling just under the surface, a daily dose of CBD can have a powerful impact on your mental health.
For a prolonged, long lasting dose of CBD, we recommend taking a CBD edible. It will take upwards of an hour to feel the effects, but you’ll enjoy relief for 8-10 hours during the day. We recommend starting with 10mg and increasing as necessary. Everyone’s tolerance will be different, but it is important to start low and figure out your appropriate dose.
300mg CBD per package
Don’t let the words “gluten free” fool you, these gummy rings are super tasty and loaded with all the benefits CBD provides. With three flavors to choose from (Cherry, Blue Raspberry and Green Apple), you’ll have a delicious way to help cope with your anxiety.

For some people, CBD alone isn’t enough to diminish feelings of anxiety. Products that contain both THC and CBD produce the entourage effect, or harmonized interaction between cannabis compounds like CBD and THC, and amplify the effects of both compounds. The result can often be a more effective treatment option.
You may consider taking a CBD gummy in the morning and using a 1:1 Tincture to “top up” during the day to take the edge off. This will allow you to microdose the tincture, taking small amounts until you feel the desired result. Our Tinctures are made with MCT and olive oil, and are available as 1:1, 20:1 and 8:1, allowing you to pick the dosage that is right for you.

40mg CBD : 40mg THC
If you’d rather stick with the edible route, try out a 1:1 gummy for long lasting effects. Jelly Bombs are a fully infused cannabis gummy containing 40 mg of CBD and 40 mg of THC taken from a indica dominant cannabis extract. Sativa products can sometimes heighten anxiety, so we recommend sticking with indica dominant products. Relax, unwind and sleep easy.

If you have already taken your gummy or tincture for the day, but feel an anxiety attack coming on, you don’t have much time to wait. You need to relief immediately.
Inhalation is a great way to get relief fast. While the effects won’t last as long as a tincture or edible, the onset of the effects will be quick. The act of holding the pen and smoking also gives your mind something else to focus on, which can help alleviate the feelings of panic long enough for the CBD and THC to work their magic. Sovrin Extracts make some of the best vape pens on the market and have four 1:1 THC:CBD cartridges to choose from.

Another great option for fast relief is a CBD spray. The Mota CBD Spray has 120mg CBD, is fast acting, effective, and a great option for while you’re on the go or in public. It looks like you’re spritzing some Scope in your mouth!
