I have anxiety and that wasn’t covered before. Has that changed?

It has! In 2020, the state of Pennsylvania added anxiety to their list of qualified conditions. Generalized Anxiety Disorder still affects many people throughout the state of Pennsylvania, and that has only increased during the pandemic. But now, you can treat this anxiety through medical marijuana.

Do I need to see a doctor to get diagnosed with Anxiety or PTSD?

Not anymore! One of Releaf Specialists’ signatures is being able to provide a diagnosis of anxiety or PTSD, right from your home. This assessment is completely free to take, and if it comes back positive and you choose to use it as your clinical diagnosis, it is just an extra $75 fee. All you need to do is take this assessment for anxiety or this one for PTSD, and you will have a clinical diagnosis provided to you.

I’m still not sure Medical Marijuana will help me. Why should I choose it over prescription drugs?

Every patient is different, and you need to find what is right for you and your medical needs. However, medical marijuana has been proven to help patients with a wide variety of conditions, in a safe and compassionate way that can reduce many of the long term side effects that can come with other medications. The cannabinoids that are found in THC are similar to chemicals the body naturally produces, and can therefore produce more natural solutions to things like pain, anxiety, appetite, and inflammation.
