The Dutch have done it, they have found a link that many have suspected has existed for decades between the use of marijuana and anxiety disorder. The Netherlands National Institute of Mental Health and Addiction set out on a path of discovery to access a possible link between cannabis use and the onslaught of mood disorders.
Anxiety disorder and bipolar disorder were the main disorders they were attempting to uncover details of. They were seeking to find a correlation between use of the class C substance and the disorders emergence.
Their agenda was to determine, considering the disproportionate amount of people who seem to have an addiction to the substance, and a mutual disorder such as manic depression, if the ‘seem to’ was evident when held up against scientific study.
Their set of assumptions going into the study was that marijuana use could indeed be a trigger of a mood disorder.
Their research found a link not only for bipolar disorder and the smoking of marijuana but for anxiety disorder also, there was however one detail missing which made the study worthless in many ways. The notion, even the possibility that the disorder was already evident before consumption of the drug was not approached in the study.
Whilst it is a known fact that many of the symptoms of those disorders are the very symptoms that would lead a person to seek out drugs in order to behave in a more ‘socially acceptable way’ they neglected this detail in their research.Learn how I beat Depression
