Mental Health & Cannabis

• Your endocannabinoid system is the largest neurotransmitter system in your body, and regulates every other ne​urotransmitter, including serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine, and GABA. Traditional treatments for dep​ression target serotonin, treatments for anxiety target GABA, and treatments for ADHD target dop​amine. Many of us are anxious, depressed, and unfocused. Why take 3 drugs when cannabis could treat the root of the problem?


• The endocannabinoid system helps you forget. If you have PTSD or depression, you can’t forget traumatic events or silence that critic in your head telling you you’re not good enough. This is because you suffer from endocannabinoid deficiency. Using cannabis restores endocannabinoid system function and helps you let go.​


• If you have chronic pain, you’re likely depressed. Instead of getting an opiate prescription and a prescription for Prozac, why not use a medication that treats both symptoms? Cannabis strains of the indica variety are great for pain, while sativa strains are great for fighting fatigue and boosting mood. A pain patient with depression may benefit greatly by using a hybrid strain that contains both indica and sativa strains.


• What’s better for mental health, THC or CBD? In some patients, THC can worsen anxiety or even trigger a psychotic episode, especially when taken in high doses, stressful situations, or in a patient that has schizophrenia. Using products that contain at least a 1:1 ratio of CBD to THC can prevent these unwanted side effects. For some patients, avoiding THC altogether and using products with hemp oil or CBD is right for them.


• Treating mental health with cannabis is more than just about the cannabinoids, like THC or CBD. Terpenes like linalool, limonene, and beta-caryophyllene all have medicinal benefits too, such as​ reducing anxiety. Look for whole-plant products as opposed to CBD or THC isolates to get the full benefit of cannabis for mental health.
