Medical Marijuana for Anxiety & Depression

Anxiety and depression are two of the most common mental health disorders in the United States. Marijuana has been found to help people with anxiety and depression by reducing the symptoms and improving sleep quality. Medical marijuana has proven to be a safe and effective alternative to antidepressants.

When using medical marijuana for anxiety and depression, it is more important to choose a lower-THC concentration than to focus on the indica vs. sativa distinction. Higher doses of THC should be avoided, since they could increase anxiety. Animal studies have shown that THC may stimulate serotonin production, resulting in mood improvements, but high doses of the compound may worsen depressive symptoms. Non-psychoactive CBD is also known to alleviate stress and improve mood, and therefore, strains with higher CBD content may be a helpful option for those seeking depression relief.
