    Personally I think all weed heightens scenes that's what brings out paranoia Schizophrenia anxiety and other crazy things if you suffer from anything like that its 80% that smoking weed will just make you worse

    Any any one who says weed has never caused any of them symptoms at some stage is a lie'r

    Weed is great for pain and can help with anxiety as long as you are not very prone to having anxiety attacks if you are it will only get worse

    Staiva will make it worse, fires up the mind compounds worries.

    Get strong Indica

    I too suffer from anxiety, and i have to agree with chrishydro on this one.

    Strong indica works best for me in times of anxiety.

    Take care,

    gotta agree with the last 2 posters. the mindfuck high that strong sativas can produce will make anxiety worse imo! what you want is a strong indica, something to slow everything down. i have had problems with anxiety in the past, and i found it to be more of an issue at night while lying in bed. my mind would race and it often seemed to go hand in hand with insomnia, and for that reason i would recommend a strong purple like grape ape or GDP.

    natural medicine is better imo than chemicals made in a lab

    I still prefer a good sativa over indica even for my anxiety. Blue dream, hawaiian, well ... most work well for me.

    Some people I know claim White Rhino is helping them very much.

    strawberry cough! not a big yielder but it sure does the trick. its not THEE best strain for anxiety (at least for me i found one better but i never knew what the name of the strain was!)

    also supposedly jillybean is another good for anxiety. i plan on ordering that one next from attitude!

    High CBD strains should help. Indica leaning plants can help and Sativas too - if they have the right chemical profile. Some sativas work wonders for anxiety. Some will make even the calmest person extremely paranoid and nervous. It's really a matter of experimenting a little and seeing what works best for you IMO.

    I have severe anxiety, I usually have to stear away from sativas or sativa doms, I have some GDP right now that does the trick, any true kush is a godsend for me as well.

    I would recommend Ice cream from paradise seeds, especially if it is for daytime, great because nice mix of head high and relaxing, try it!

    kyle kushman's veganic grape ape has not let me down for the last 3 months... super smooth and always calms my night terrors! I do agree with other posters, some strains will make even the calmest men peek out the window every 5 minutesa!

    is it possible to get a 100 percent indica seed?

    Absolutely! I have some good advice: Select strains with a higher CBD to THC ratio. Indicas will tend to give you a more couchlock effect. Maybe even try some edibles or concentrates. Stay Crunchy! Crunch*
