From: A positive association between anxiety disorders and cannabis use or cannabis use disorders in the general population- a meta-analysis of 31 studies

Figure 5

Random-effects meta-analysis (A) and one-study removed analysis (B) of N= 5 studies on cannabis use at baseline and anxiety at follow-up (all ORs adjusted for potential confounders). Notes: The top forest plot (A) shows that there was an overall positive association between cannabis use at baseline and anxiety at follow-up in N=5 studies according to the random-effects meta-analysis (overall mean weighted OR=1.28, 95% CI: 1.06-1.54). The bottom forest plot (B) shows the outcome of the one-study removed sensitivity analysis. ‘Point’ on plot B refers to the overall mean weighted OR of all studies without the study in each row. This analysis revealed that the positive association between cannabis use at baseline and anxiety at follow-up was still present when the study with the largest OR in plot A (OR=3.20) was removed from the analysis.
