Marijuana do not relieve stress, anxiety or depression. It is one of the most harmful substance for psychological health. Its use frequently lead to anxiety, depression and psychosis in long term.

Your current use will lead you dependence on it in future because of development of tolerance.

For treatment of stress and insomnia, it is better to visit nearby psychiatrist, as very effective treatment is available now a days.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
Wish you Good Health.
