Announcer: You’re listening to Not Loopy, a Psych Central podcast. And listed below are your hosts, Jackie Zimmerman and Gabe Howard.

Gabe: Welcome to this week’s episode of the Not Loopy Podcast. I’d wish to introduce my co-host, Jackie.

Jackie: And that man is my co-host, Gabe.

Gabe: And right this moment we’re going to be speaking about. I’m not even positive what to name it. It’s been often called marijuana. It’s been often called hashish. It’s been often called wacky tobaccy, should you return to love my grandparents. I assume pot is the road title now.

Jackie: You sound like so, Grandpa Gabe, proper now. You’re like, what are the youngsters calling it as of late? 

Gabe: Properly, simply

Jackie: It’s weed, Gabe. We’re speaking about weed.

Gabe: However I imply, it was once grass. It has had a prolific variety of slang names. I imply, sincerely. Proper?

Jackie: Sure, that’s true.

Gabe: And I went to a dispensary the opposite day and I used to be like, hey, I’m right here to purchase pot they usually’re like hashish, sir? And I used to be like, properly, weed. And so they’re like, marijuana, sir? So I feel that there’s some try and make a demarcation between slang phrases of marijuana and non-slang phrases of marijuana. Is that what you’re seeing out on this planet, Jackie?

Jackie: I feel it relies on the place you’re acquiring mentioned marijuana, proper? Should you’re buying it from a retailer, they’re like, sure, we promote marijuana right here. Should you’re going to the nook, you’re most likely going to purchase some weed. I feel it simply relies on the place you’re getting it. Identical stuff, totally different title.

Gabe: And this isn’t uncommon, particularly in America. Language is at all times evolving and totally different generations have totally different phrases for various issues. Keep in mind when sick meant such as you had been sick and funky meant you had been a nasty ass? Now sick implies that you’re a nasty ass. And should you say cool, children simply have a look at you such as you’re simply, you’re simply silly.

Jackie: Which is like how I’m taking a look at you proper now, as a result of the extra you speak simply the older you sound. Low key, you sound like an actual previous man proper now.

Gabe: I really like how you utilize low key, one other slang time period that I’m not acquainted with. However shifting on to the subject at hand, marijuana is in all places and relying on what Web web site you’re on. Marijuana is both the magical remedy for every thing, actually, it doesn’t matter what drawback you may have bodily or mentally, it could actually completely, unequivocally remedy it. Or marijuana is satanic. Should you even stroll previous it, you’ll homicide your whole household. You gained’t go to varsity and your eyes will inexplicably flip crimson. And our analysis, Jackie, after all, confirmed that the reality lies someplace within the center.

Jackie: Because it does with most issues, however what we’re specializing in right this moment particularly is using marijuana, weed, pot, grass, reefer, no matter you need to name it when it comes to treating anxiousness. And I’m actually excited to speak about this as a result of that is one thing that’s like polarizing. Folks both thinks it’s like the tip all be all, cures anxiousness or they’re like, it doesn’t assist in any respect. And it is best to positively not use it for anxiousness.

Gabe: One of many issues that I take into consideration is my Food regimen Coke behavior, I’m gonna go along with behavior for the sake of right this moment’s present. I’ve an anxiousness dysfunction. I undergo from a whole lot of anxiousness. And after I get actually twitchy and out of kinds and I’m simply actually stressed, frightened, panic. You understand, the racing ideas begin to are available after I’m on the verge of an anxiousness assault. I cease every thing that I’m doing. I discover a fountain machine of Food regimen Coke, which normally includes going someplace, taking a stroll someplace, getting in my automotive. There’s a complete ritual surrounding me getting a Food regimen Coke. And I can state unequivocally that after I do that ritual and I’m sitting within the nook and I’m ingesting my fountain Food regimen Coke, my anxiousness is relieved 100%. This doesn’t make Food regimen Coke a remedy or a therapy for anxiousness. And I feel that that is perhaps a few of what’s occurring with marijuana, as a result of no medical research reveals that it’s a therapy for anxiousness. And once more, medical research are ongoing. However as of proper now, there’s nothing that states that anxiousness is cured or handled by marijuana.

Jackie: You’re proper. And a part of me needs to be like, no, you’re flawed, it completely helps as a result of I feel it truly does assist lots of people. The issue is, you understand, that I really like my stats. The stats don’t present this. I truly pulled up three totally different research particularly on this subject. One research from 2019 is from The Lancet Psychiatry. It regarded on the results of cannabinoids on psychological well being for almost 40 years of analysis, which is like a whole lot of analysis. And their findings mainly mentioned there was scarce proof to help that hashish helps to enhance psychological well being signs. Forty years of analysis on this one research saying like meh, most likely not that useful. However there was one other research in 2018 in Hashish and Cannabinoid Analysis, which is like, how is there even a journal devoted to this? However there’s. Sixty two % of people that use CBD use it for a medical situation. And the highest three are ache, anxiousness, and melancholy. So my takeaway on that is we don’t have proof within the science that it really works, however we do have proof that persons are utilizing it for these causes and are discovering profit in it.

Gabe: And in some methods, it is a robust one, proper? As a result of I take into consideration the variety of those who inform me that I mustn’t take prescription drugs for my bipolar dysfunction as a result of in any case, I simply want eating regimen and train, higher sleep hygiene. I simply we’ve carried out so many reveals on this. It’s simply it makes my little head need to explode. However I nonetheless return to the definition of therapy and remedy. And the definition of therapy and remedy isn’t I really feel higher after I’m carried out. It truly impacts the illness and places you in a greater place once you’re carried out. Numerous issues make you are feeling higher. Jackie hugging my spouse makes me really feel higher. Having a robust help system makes me really feel higher. This stuff will not be therapies. They’re inspired. They’re vital. And so they might properly show you how to. However I simply get actually, actually anxious. I simply get actually, actually anxious when persons are like, oh, I deal with my anxiousness with this as a result of there’s so many causes. However let’s contact base on this for a second. Marijuana on this nation is sort of tousled, one depending on the state that you simply stay in, you would possibly truly be committing against the law. That’s primary. However in each state in our union, there’s a number of sorts of marijuana. Proper? There’s the nice growers. There’s the growers which can be overseen by the federal government within the states the place it’s authorized. After which there’s the person who’s identical to randomly rising it. And we don’t know what sort of job they did, what sort of a pressure they did, or whether or not or not they doused it in rat poison. And all of this stuff are marijuana to the tip consumer. That worries me as properly, as a result of there’s no consistency right here.

Jackie: I’ve a whole lot of emotions about that. Sure. Appropriate. No consistency given the truth that our authorities has not legalized it universally, which implies that it can’t be regulated universally. Even whether it is authorized the place you’re, it routinely means it’s dearer. So you should still be going to a road vendor regardless. So the consistency issue is unquestionably a problem. Nevertheless, biking again for a minute, whereas it’s not confirmed that it’s an efficient therapy, I feel that judging by 62 % of customers and all people else, together with a 2017 research within the Worldwide Journal of Drug Coverage, the place folks imagine that hashish is an efficient strategy to deal with situations rather than prescriptions for anxiousness and melancholy. What this tells me is when it comes to signs, administration, it may be or it’s efficient relying on who you speak to. So is it treating anxiousness? I don’t know. I don’t have the science, however is it treating the signs of hysteria? Yeah, it seems prefer it does. And are these one in the identical? I don’t suppose that they’re. I feel that you could have loads of drugs that deal with the precise underlying drawback and plenty of drugs that deal with the signs of the issue.

Gabe: Clearly, I can’t disagree with something that you simply simply mentioned. Nevertheless, there have been comparable research on whether or not or not cigarettes show you how to deal with anxiousness. And the fact is that cigarettes have been studied for a protracted, very long time. And the analysis reveals unequivocally that cigarette smoking truly doesn’t assist with anxiousness. Nevertheless, once they requested folks if it helps them, they mentioned sure. You line up all the people who smoke and also you say, Hey, does smoking relieve anxiousness? They’re all going to say, sure. The science may be very clear that in actual fact it will increase anxiousness, however they imagine that it’s useful. That is the issue with self-reporting, proper. Lots of people imagine that issues which can be harmful for them or are actively hurting them are, in actual fact, useful.

Jackie: I don’t know. I really feel like there’s some side of placebo on this. The place, sure, the stats from the scientists are saying this truly causes anxiousness and the people who find themselves utilizing it are saying, no, I really feel higher after doing it. So who’s proper? I don’t suppose there’s is definitely a proper and flawed on this, which fits in opposition to every thing that I usually say as a result of there are science main a method. But when the individual says, I really feel higher after this, doesn’t it imply that it’s good for that individual?

Gabe: Probably, I feel we return to my Food regimen Coke dependancy. The fact is, is ingesting as a lot Food regimen Coke as I do could possibly be dangerous. I ought to drink far more water and I ought to go for extra walks and I ought to name my mother extra and I ought to inform my spouse I really like her extra. Life is private decisions. And with regards to the legalization of marijuana, from a political standpoint, I feel it ought to completely be authorized as a result of it’s it’s been discovered to be no extra harmful for you than smoking or alcohol. And in reality, in some instances, a lot safer. However shifting that apart, to reply the query of someone affected by anxiousness, ought to they use marijuana as a therapy? I’m gonna go along with no. Nevertheless, someone affected by anxiousness, ought to they use marijuana as a coping mechanism? That’s a private alternative. And Gabe is there. So I kind of really feel the one-two punch. It is best to nonetheless get therapy from the medical institution. However all of us have coping abilities. Look, folks watch Household Man on repeat to get by way of the day. That’s only a coping mechanism. However please don’t ship me an e mail and inform me that Household Man is the therapy for melancholy as a result of not.

Jackie: I feel the foundation of this complete dialog is we’re simply speaking about vices, proper? Like your vice is Food regimen Coke. We’re speaking about cigarettes and weed and Household Man. Proper? No matter your vice is. I feel we are able to unequivocally agree that vices assist with stress administration. Proper? That’s why folks drink, proper? They’re stressed or they’re offended. They need to erase the sentiments that they’re feeling in that second. That’s why we’ve got vices. That’s what they do for us. However you’re proper, you may’t say that like the nice outweighs the unhealthy. And all of these vices proper? You’re consuming a metric shit load of aspartame. Is that good? Most likely not. I don’t know, but it surely makes you are feeling higher. So, you understand, are we speaking long-term well being? Are we speaking quick time period? I don’t suppose it actually issues. Does marijuana assist with anxiousness? Perhaps it might. I don’t know. I feel it’s so private. And I feel that, once more, we simply don’t have sufficient analysis at this level to say someway, as a result of even the research that we’re quoting proper now, they’re all on the lookout for various things. They’re on the lookout for is it efficient? They’re on the lookout for do folks suppose it’s efficient? Are they utilizing it rather than one thing else? There’s no research that actually has touched on all of the bases that we’ve got but when it comes to is it efficient for this? Is it efficient for this at the side of prescribed treatment? We don’t know. So I assume select your individual journey so long as you’re sensible and wholesome and never a dumb dumb.

Gabe: I actually simply need to hit arduous on what Jackie mentioned concerning the “we don’t know.” There are such a lot of those who simply imagine that it’s the remedy for every thing. And there’s so many individuals that imagine that it’s the most horrible factor. It’s only a pox on our nation. These will not be the 2 camps that we needs to be in. We must always proceed the analysis. We must always discover out what is sweet and what’s unhealthy. I simply need to be clear that any sort of self-medicating is harmful.

Jackie: Lots of people use this to self-medicate. Self-medicating, we all know is harmful, particularly once you’re not being trustworthy along with your well being care crew. So that is a kind of issues that, you understand, if it really works for you, that’s nice. However don’t drive it on anyone else as a result of we simply don’t have the analysis to again that it’s truly efficient.

Gabe: We’ll be proper again after these messages.

Jackie: And we’re again speaking about utilizing marijuana as a therapy for anxiousness.

Gabe: Jackie, we’ve talked concerning the stats, we’ve talked concerning the research, we’ve bantered backwards and forwards. Let’s speak to someone who makes use of marijuana for her anxiousness dysfunction and in addition for rheumatoid arthritis. Are you able to give her an introduction? As a result of she was very candid and really superior. It was nice of her to name in.

Jackie: Sure, positive. We invited our good friend Eileen, who we all know by way of advocacy, to return on and discuss why she makes use of marijuana to assist together with her anxiousness, but additionally why she makes use of it for her RA. And I feel she’s going to have a whole lot of useful perception on this.

Gabe: And we’re going to roll that interview proper now.

Jackie: We’re right here with our good friend Eileen. Gabe and I do know Eileen outdoors in the actual world, however we thought she’d be a extremely nice visitor to convey on the present right this moment. So welcome, Eileen.

Eileen Davidson: Hello, my title is Eileen Davidson and I stay in lovely Vancouver, British Columbia, which has been worldwide recognized for longer than it’s been authorized in Canada to have very, superb weed. 

Gabe: We’re so tremendous excited to have you ever since you are prepared to publicly discuss utilizing marijuana or hashish. Why are you so public about utilizing it? As a result of in lots of locations it’s nonetheless against the law. And even the locations the place it’s authorized, it’s nonetheless very a lot regarded down upon. However you’re like, hey, I smoke weed.

Eileen: Properly, as a result of I additionally imagine within the medical part of it. I stay with rheumatoid arthritis and psychological well being points. So to me, it’s very medical. And since I don’t actually drink due to my autoimmune illness, it’s additionally a tiny bit leisure and it’s authorized in Canada.

Jackie: Eileen, are there any particular signs that you simply’re utilizing medical marijuana to deal with?

Eileen: Sure. So residing with a continual sickness comes with a number of various kinds of signs, in addition to unwanted effects from the drugs used to deal with these illnesses. So, notably with rheumatoid arthritis, I’ve continual fatigue, constant continual ache in addition to generally nausea. So that’s one more reason why I truly do get pleasure from smoking marijuana as a result of it actually tackles the nausea after which additionally helps with the lack of urge for food that I can expertise. After which it additionally helps with not with the ability to sleep due to ache. And it’s helped with quite a lot of the drugs that I’ve gone by way of which have precipitated vomiting. And so it’s sort of a drug that I don’t use for only one particular factor, however a mess of various issues.

Gabe: I do like that you simply’re so open about it.

Eileen: I wasn’t at all times open about it, although. I was truly very in opposition to marijuana.

Jackie: Ooh, what modified your thoughts?

Eileen: Debilitating prognosis of rheumatoid arthritis. So I’ve been round it lots earlier than as a result of my earliest reminiscences of it are my father smoking weed whereas doing these artistic, surrealistic work. My dad was sort of a hippie and so like my childhood is mainly reminiscences of the scent of oil paints, marijuana and the sound of Pink Floyd enjoying to those loopy work. So, but it surely was unlawful again then. So I felt very conflicted lots as a result of I used to be like, why are you smoking marijuana when that’s speculated to be a drug, as they’re telling you at school? And so I didn’t actually perceive. I by no means needed to the touch medicine my complete life. I’ve by no means touched something apart from espresso, marijuana and alcohol, slightly little bit of wine, however being identified with one thing that causes extreme ache and having to undergo drugs which have a whole lot of unwanted effects. At the moment, I used to be like, properly, that is medicinal to me, so I’ll strive it. And I felt like an fool being in opposition to it earlier than. My prognosis actually opened my eyes to this isn’t actually in the identical line as like heroin or cocaine and issues like that. Although, I by no means tried these. And it was additionally actually serving to folks. Folks like me who had been in prognosis of most cancers, M.S., Parkinson’s, all kinds of issues. What I didn’t count on is that it will additionally assist with my psychological well being.

Jackie: And did you uncover that simply kind of like happenstance, you had been like, oh, I sort of really feel good in all places proper now? Or was it extra of one thing that you simply truly examined? You had been like. I’m feeling actually anxious. Let’s see if this helps right here.

Eileen: I might say it first began off with me noticing that it did impact my psychological well being. Once I first began smoking weed, I didn’t find out about THC, CBD and the way it will sort of work together with me. So I might strive one thing, not know what sort of pressure it’s after which sort of really feel full-blown anxiousness assault. However then I might additionally strive a unique one and really feel tremendous relaxed. And so I found that I needed to sort of watch which strains helps with my anxiousness and didn’t assist with my anxiousness and to sort of analysis in order that I could possibly be higher knowledgeable.

Gabe: So my subsequent query is kind of considerably of a controversial one, as a result of it sounds such as you’re self-prescribed, like a physician didn’t prescribe this, it’s sort of a trial and error in your behalf, is that appropriate?

Eileen: Sure. Now, I do comply with tips of locations just like the Arthritis Society as a result of they’re a wealth of data for folks like me who’re involved in supplying medical hashish. However when you may have a hook up, it’s additionally cheaper.

Gabe: As humorous as that’s, although, do you inform your whole medical doctors that you simply’re using hashish as a therapy or do you retain that on the down low?

Eileen: I inform them, as a result of I feel it’s vital to be trustworthy along with your medical doctors about each side in your well being. It’s actually vital to hearken to the affected person voice with regards to their wants. And that’s together with their drugs. And marijuana could be a treatment.

Jackie: So let me ask you this at the side of telling your medical doctors about this. Earlier than you began utilizing weed for anxiousness. Have been you prescribed treatment for anxiousness and if that’s the case, had been they working?

Eileen: Sure, I’ve tried a few totally different drugs for anxiousness. I did discover that they labored. I used to be on them for quite a lot of years. Medicine you gained’t discover the right drug in one-go normally. It’s quite a lot of medicine it’s a must to strive. I attempted three or 4 for my anxiousness and melancholy. I attempted over 18 for my rheumatoid arthritis. And I don’t know what number of strains of marijuana I’ve tried for every thing I’m going by way of. In order that’s what it’s a must to be taught. And what works for one might not work for the opposite.

Jackie: So do you suppose that it really works higher in your anxiousness than the prescriptions did?

Eileen: No, I positively don’t suppose it really works higher or worse. I feel they work collectively.

Gabe: I actually like what you’re saying there, and I don’t know if I agree or disagree, I’m actually on the fence about a whole lot of these things, which is among the causes that we needed to interview someone who is definitely using hashish and marijuana for therapy as a result of we needed to inform the entire story. However one of many issues that I take into consideration so usually are the people who find themselves self-medicating, the people who find themselves affected by bipolar dysfunction, melancholy, anxiousness, schizophrenia, psychosis, they usually run out, they meet someone on a road nook or in an alley they usually purchase marijuana they usually’re like, oh, look, I’m treating my psychological well being points. And that sounds so extremely scary to me. And I simply need to ensure that none of our listeners are listening to that that works. What are your ideas on that?

Eileen: Don’t ever, ever try this. I’ve seen how that seems. I find out about good people who find themselves in danger for having damaging psychoactive results from marijuana and must be careful for that. Like I mentioned, if it doesn’t be just right for you, it doesn’t be just right for you, but it surely would possibly work for another person. So it’s actually vital to maintain an open thoughts.

Jackie: So I’ve yet another query that’s sort of stepping into the specifics. There are a boatload of various methods at this level that you could kind of devour marijuana on this planet we stay in right this moment. And I’m questioning, have you ever experimented with this when it comes to efficacy for anxiousness? Is it higher to smoke it or eat it? Is CBD oil the best way to go? What’s one of the simplest ways to make use of this for anxiousness that you simply’ve found for your self?

Eileen: Properly, relying on what you’re experiencing along with your anxiousness, if I simply end one thing and I must calm down from it, I’ll most likely smoke a joint. But when I must go someplace the place I is perhaps experiencing anxiousness and I don’t need to be excessive, then I’m going to take some CBD oil. However I do know my triggers now. I don’t have the damaging results that possibly I had after I first began as a result of I’ve self experimented and in addition I watch how a lot I’m taking and I take typically fairly excellent care of myself total.

Gabe: Eileen, thanks a lot for being right here, the place can of us discover you on-line in the event that they need to be taught extra about your advocacy since you’re enormous within the rheumatoid arthritis group?

Eileen: Properly, thanks. They’ll discover me on-line. I’m going by Persistent Eileen, which I assume has slightly bit to indicate with being a continual. But in addition continual sickness. In order that’s Persistent Eileen, and Eileen is E I L E E N, they usually can discover me at ChronicEileen.com or Instagram or Fb or Twitter.

Gabe: Properly, we actually respect you being right here. Thanks a lot.

Eileen: No drawback. Thanks a lot for having me.

Gabe: I at all times find it irresistible when we’ve got friends on, Jackie.

Jackie: I do love an excellent visitor. Eileen is superior. She is a extremely nice advocate on-line. It is best to comply with her. All the pieces that she does,

Gabe: Fan lady.

Jackie: She’s a beautiful individual.

Gabe: Properly, Jackie, clearly we picked her for a cause, we all know that she’s an awesome advocate. What did you consider every thing that Eileen needed to say?

Jackie: I felt prefer it was actually nice that Eileen talked about that not solely does she use this, we’ll say off label, non-approved, however she additionally makes use of it at the side of her treatment. This isn’t a substitute for her treatment. It helps together with her treatment and that she’s very trustworthy together with her medical doctors about her utilization.

Gabe: I like that she truly used the phrase leisure at one level as a result of I feel that generally, advocates for marijuana, they’re so closely targeted on its medical advantages, which there are medical advantages. There aren’t any authorised for psychological well being causes, however there’s medical advantages authorised for bodily causes, bodily well being causes. There are such a lot of. I like that she was open about the truth that there’s a leisure side. I feel it’s a extra average and lifelike and affordable standpoint.

Jackie: Yeah, dude, I imply, generally folks smoke weed for enjoyable and that’s the one cause why they use it. And for these individuals who do use it for medicinal causes, you may’t lie that generally it’s nonetheless a enjoyable pastime recreationally.

Gabe: One of many issues that I need to discuss is one thing that I simply I hear consistently and that’s folks saying, properly, marijuana can’t presumably be unhealthy for you as a result of it’s all pure. I hear this consistently. All pure, all pure. How can one thing all pure be unhealthy for you? It drives me insane. And the explanation why is as a result of there’s all types of all pure issues which can be very, very, very harmful. Strychnine is all pure. Poison ivy is all pure. I don’t suppose anyone listening to our present goes to get buck bare and rub poison ivy throughout their physique. As a result of in any case, it’s all pure. How unhealthy might or not it’s?

Jackie: You understand, I wager should you informed folks to rub poison ivy on them and they’d shed some pounds, they might do it. Which simply goes to point out that, sure, one thing could possibly be pure, however you continue to must be a sensible individual and you continue to have to make use of frequent sense when utilizing no matter that pure substance is.

Gabe: The factor is, I agree with you. And this simply reveals the extent of confusion that we’ve got. I need to be clear, rubbing poison ivy in your physique is not going to make you shed some pounds in any respect in any manner. Interval. Please don’t ship e-mail to the Not Loopy podcast saying that you simply did it. I hope that you’re paying consideration once you hearken to this half as a result of it’s very, essential.
