According to CNN -A new study, published Wednesday in the journal JAMA Psychiatry, surveyed more than 1,000 UK residents who reported marijuana use in the past year. The study found high-potency weed users appear to have a significant increase in the likelihood of developing generalized anxiety disorder than those who smoke less robust strains of marijuana.
In addition, high-potency weed users are more likely to use weed at least once a week, twice as likely to have used illicit drugs within the past 12 months, and more than three times as likely to be tobacco smokers, according to the study which was published Wednesday in the journal JAMA Psychiatry.
“To our knowledge, this study provides the first general population evidence suggesting that the use of high-potency cannabis is associated with mental health [disorders] and addiction,” the authors wrote.
Their conclusion, “Limiting the availability of high-potency cannabis may be associated with a reduction in the number of individuals who develop cannabis use disorders, the prevention of cannabis use from escalating to a regular behavior, and a reduction in the risk of mental health disorders.”
This is the 2nd or 3rd news post i’ve seen recently on them talking about marijuana is too potent. Wtf? They survey 1000 people and make a statement like this. Maybe those people had mental anxiety issues to begin with and that’s why they are self medicating- not the weed causing(lasting)mental anxiety problems. Just leave ish alone my goodness!
