Top 7 Cannabis Strains-Natural Depression Remedy

Top 7 Marijuana Strains-Natural Relief from Depression Symptoms

The benefits of using marijuana to relieve depression have been clear. It can negate the need for harmful prescription chemicals and, if you are growing cannabis yourself, then you will know the exact origins of your medication and can even grow your weed organically to ensure your medication is truly natural.

How Cannabis Treats Depression:

Though THC levels do vary amongst cannabis seeds, even plants with a very low dosage can still provide relief against depression in two ways:

  • First, the THC can stimulate a substance in the brain known as Anandamide which controls the feeling of well being in a person experiences. Stimulating this compound enables a cannabis user to reduce their levels of depression and in some cases, get rid of it all together.
  • Second, marijuana users will find that THC can also stimulate the neurogenesis section of the hippocampus which can actually create new neurons in this part of the brain which can actually work to reduce depression and its effects in the long term.

Cannabis can also work to combat some of the key side effects of depression. It can work to reduce high blood pressure, stop those who comfort eat from wanting to seek solace in food and it can help those with insomnia get more sleep.

On the Flip Side…

Can Marijuana actually cause depression?

It’s important to tell both sides of the research on marijuana and depression. For example, Can marijuana actually cause depression? In the expert answer section of The Mayo Clinic, Daniel K. Hall-Flavin, M.D., answers this question. I have included the answer below, and go to the original answer here.

 Some research suggests that marijuana smokers are diagnosed with depression more often than nonsmokers are — particularly regular or heavy marijuana users. However, it doesn’t appear that marijuana directly causes depression.

It’s likely that the genetic, environmental or other factors that trigger depression also lead to marijuana use. For example, some people may use marijuana as a way to cope with depression symptoms. Heavy users may also appear depressed as a result of the dulling effects of the drug on feelings and emotions.

There are also links between marijuana and other mental health conditions. Marijuana use may trigger schizophrenia or detachment from reality (psychosis) in people who are at higher risk of psychosis. The symptoms of diagnosed psychotic illness and its course may be aggravated if marijuana use continues. There is also some evidence that teenagers who attempt suicide may be more likely to have used marijuana than those who have not made an attempt. As with marijuana use and depression, more research is needed to better understand these associations.

The bottom line: Marijuana use and depression accompany each other more often than you might expect by chance, but there’s no clear evidence that marijuana directly causes depression.
