Why Medical Marijuana?

DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY

Depression and anxiety are two extremely common medical conditions. When someone who is depressed they often lack interest in activities and and go through bouts of sadness. For some, anxiety can manifest when a person regularly feels disproportionate levels of anxiety that leads to excessive nervousness, fear, apprehension, and worry.  The mainstay of treatment for both involve medications (like Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor (SSRI), Antidepressant, Anxiolytic, and Antipsychotic), talk therapy, behavior therapy or psychotherapy. In the case of anxiety, one may consider sedatives, too.

Many severe and chronic conditions contribute to depression and anxiety. Conditions like severe pain and cancer can be debilitating and often lead to depression and anxiety. In NY, there are a total of 12 approved conditions that qualify for medical marijuana. This is good news because many with these approved conditions are dealing with associated anxiety and depression and want a safer alternative to using medications with unfavorable side effects.

Medical marijuana can be very useful to those with anxiety or depression. There are some strains of MMJ that may be helpful for patients with anxiety and depression. Indica strains, which contain lower amounts of THC and higher amounts of CBD, are thought to be exceptional for treating pain caused by inflammation and quelling anxiety within the body. Marijuana with low amounts of THC and high amounts of CBD may be useful to calm the nerves. Sativa strains are uplifting and energizing can be a life changer for a depressed person. When you work with an experienced registered medical marijuana practitioner, you will get certified and educated on the proper way to treat your condition with medical marijuana.
