Hi there. I also suffer from anxiety. It was pretty bad years ago but since got it under control with meds. I take escitalopram and its been amazing for me. Zero side effects. I also have bav and I also love weed. I smoke a joint on occasion...and cigars.. but I mostly use a vape or take edibles. Generally smoking isn't great so depending on how much you partake it may have negative effects in general. But weed does help me to relax and ease me on bad days so I wouldnt give it up personally. I've accepted that at some point in life I may need surgery...or may get hit by a car...or get diagnosed with cancer...or...or...or. so my point is keep living and enjoy doing what makes you feel good...in moderationI have really bad anxiety and (certain strands of) weed used to help that a lot. I hate medication and weed was always a great sounding alternative to me.
then I got diagnosed with BAVD and I have been scared of smoking ever since. I haven't asked my Doctor about it yet, but will in my upcoming appointment.
Any comments would be appreciated, thanks.
