Comments[edit source]

It would be interesting to reference the difference between the content of the two different strains of cannibis Sativa tends to have more Cannabidinol, which is less likely to cause anxiety and may even reduce it as it agonises the serotonin 5ht1a receptor, which is a target shared with common antidepressants(see Indica tends to have more THC

I know that THC is meant to cause more anxiety but i'm not sure which strain is worse. You might want to check out these articles There are alot of people who get really anxious from cannabis, and alot of people who get anxiety relief from it. Its interesting that cannabis itself is both excitatory and inhibitory. I havn't looked for a referenc but maybe it is linked in some way? All the best! --Arlo Porter (discusscontribs) 03:44, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

Heading casing[edit source]

FYI, the convention on Wikiversity is for lower-cased headings. For example, use:

==Cats and dogs==

rather than

==Cats and Dogs==

Feedback[edit source]


Changed the sentence. "While there are a variety of ways to relief anxiety for the short- and long-term, some individuals make take up illicit drugs." to "While there are a variety of ways to relieve anxiety for the short- and long-term, some individuals make take up illicit drug use."

Grinded isn't a word, so I changed it to ground.
