Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder. OCD manifests itself in repetitive and undesired ideas and thoughts, as well as compulsions and obsessions. The disorder can create the feeling that certain repeated behavior can relieve the anxiety that is brought on by the disorder. This can cause those living with OCD to find themselves in a seemingly endless circle of anxiousness and unwanted behaviors. Historically, OCD has been treated with antidepressant and anti-anxiety medications. These often have a long list of side effects. Medical-grade cannabis has few known side effects. Also, THC reacts with a chemical produced in the brain called anandamide, which can help to decrease anxiety and cause a calming effect in people suffering from OCD.
