Mental Illness and Medical Cannabis

Mental Illness and Medical Cannabis- The Magic is Within You.

As we push to remove the stigma of #mentalillness and #medicalcannabis, we are discovering more and more how medical cannabis therapy can aid in alleviating symptoms of depression.

Depression is a complex psychological disorder that affects the cerebral regions of the brain, leaving sufferers feeling hopeless, lethargic, unable to work and concentrate, irritable and unable to suppress negative thoughts. There are various causes that can trigger depression, such as loss, stress, abuse- along with many, many others.

With more research coming out and more people speaking up, medical cannabis is becoming more accepted in treating mental illness, along with therapy, exercise and meditation. Researchers from McGill University in Montreal discovered that THC in low doses can serve as an antidepressant; however, they also found that high doses of THC can worsen depression symptoms, so it’s important to be informed and aware of what strains you are medicating with. The right strain of cannabis can help to stimulate the endocannabinoid system and assists in producing serotonin, the feel-good hormone.
