Can You Use Ashwagandha and Marijuana Together?

Let’s get right to it, can you use Ashwagandha and Marijuana together? The short answer is yes, you can use Ashwagandha and Marijuana together. Although if you’re concerned with potential side effects then you may want to consult your doctor before using both in combination to ensure you will not suffer from any negative side effects. Ashwagandha is considered very safe for most people, so you should not have any issues.

Plants have been relied on for medicinal purposes since the dawn of time. Plant medicines like ayahuasca, psilocybin, cannabis, and ibogaine have shown promise for treating conditions like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), opioid addiction, nicotine addiction, alcoholism, anxiety, and depression. Let’s talk about two more famous plans that are very popular nowadays.

Ashwagandha and Marijuana Combined

The benefits of cannabis CBD/ashwagandha combination are said to increase the therapeutic potency of both plant-derived extracts. When combined, they are believed to make each other more potent than if taken separately. Ashwagandha is said to ground a strong high from THC.

And since it is an adaptogen, it is reported to aid in anxiety, having an effect on adrenals, which control the physiological responses to stress, and thus, can ground intensity. Ashwagandha has been studied and reported clinically to help control and balance a number of physical, mental, and sexual sensitivities. Those suffering from conditions like stress, difficulty performing sexually, depression, anxiety, and inflammation can find relief by taking ashwagandha. Classified as an adaptogen (it may help your body cope with stress), ashwagandha is an ancient healing herb.

It is a plant that is known across the Indian system of Ayurvedic medicine as Rasayana (tonic). The plants native origins are India, the Middle East, Northern Africa, and it is now found in the U.S., where it thrives in temperate climates such as Oregon. Ashwagandha is the winter cherry, a member of the night-shade family, Solanaceae – the same family as tomatoes.

Ashwagandha is considered to be a neuro-supportive, nootropic herb, said to encourage healthy cognitive functions, as well as supporting healthy neural functioning. Reported benefits of the plant include lower blood sugar levels, decreased cortisol levels, helping reduce anxiety, potentially helping to treat depression, increasing testosterone and fertility in men, helping increase muscle size, potentially helping lower cholesterol and triglycerides, and improving brain function and memory. As far as depression is concerned, heres what the National Center for Biotechnology Information found in a 60-day trial: 64 stressed adults taking 600mg ashwagandha high-concentration extract daily reported a 79% decrease in severe depression, compared with 10% in the placebo group. While the forms of ashwagandha and methods of intake differ, it can be consumed as liquid tincture, capsules, tea, and powder.
