Medical Marijuana for Depression

"Learn how CBD and THC in medical marijuana can help treat depression by lowering stress levels, easing anxiety, and stabilizing mood."

Demystifying Depression

Many of us have experienced depression at one time or another — perhaps after a break-up, the death of a loved one, or another major life event. But when feelings of sadness don’t pass, it may indicate some form of clinical depression.

Combating Depression Naturally

Depression is caused by an imbalance or depletion of chemicals in the brain — specifically, serotonin and dopamine. Symptoms include sadness, anxiety, insomnia, loss of appetite, or even binge eating.

These symptoms can be so unpleasant that those suffering from depression become desperate to find a quick fix. This often results in a prescription for an antidepressant drug. Today, more than 37 million Americans take some type of antidepressant. Unfortunately, patients cycle through several medications without relief.

Marijuana medicine offers a natural, and potentially more effective, option for treating depression. Cannabinoids, specifically CBD and THC, work with your body’s own endocannabinoid system (ECS).

Mood Elevation & Marijuana Medicine

Rather than forcing a message to the brain as prescription medications do, marijuana can modify brain receptors to stabilize depleted levels of serotonin and dopamine. When this balance is restored, marijuana patients may experience a reduction in symptoms. Because marijuana is also a neuroprotectant, it may stimulate brain cell growth and prevent cell damage.

Both CBD and THC have therapeutic effects on depression. CBD may help with long-term stabilization of serotonin and dopamine, while THC works with the pleasure centers of the brain to increase a sense of well-being and can provide energy and increased focus.

Your Doctor & You

If you are suffering from depression, it’s important to speak with a medical professional. And if you’re looking for an alternative to prescription medications, which often include unpleasant side effects, it’s important to discuss the benefits marijuana medicine may provide in your treatment.

With the guidance and knowledge of a doctor, many patients find marijuana to be an extremely effective alternative to antidepressants for treating depression.

Everyone knows exactly what they are talking about with excellent recommendations. Goodblend has their own brand, FLOAT, which is the best high quality flower out there in PA. I would recommend Goodblend over any of the other local medical dispensary in Erie, PA.
