A new study published in the International Journal of Neuropsychopharmacology, and published online by the National Institute of Health, has found that cannbinoids may treat panic disorders. dontpanic

“The present study investigated the effects of systemic or intra-dorsolateral periaqueductal gray (dlPAG) administration of CB1 agonists [meant to mimic cannabinoids] on behavioural changes induced in rats by predator (a live cat) exposure, a model of panic responses”, claims the study’s abstract.

After conducting the study, researchers concluded that; “These results suggest that modulation of the cannabinoid system could be a target in the treatment of panic disorders.”

The study was conducted by reserachers at the Department of Pharmacology at the School of Medicine of Ribeirão Preto, and Centre for Interdisciplinary Research on Applied Neurosciences at the University of São Paulo. It can be found by clicking here.

  1. I’ve been doing so much research on pot for my panic attacks, which I’ve suffered for more than 3 years now. It’s crazy – sometimes I get it at the office out of nowhere, or even when I’m walking down a street. You never know when it’s going to hit you. It all started when I came out of a big depression, and it just never seemed to go away. My doc prescribed me Xanax, and I’ve been taking Valiums to sleep it off, but these meds seemed to fuck me up more. I finally tried some MMJ, and nothing has worked BETTER for me than the plant!!! If you suffer from it, I highly recommend trying some weed. Good luck!!!
