Depression

 

Depression is one of the most common categories for those seeking relief through cannabis. Such a general term can cover anything from the blues to anxiety. Cannabis has been shown to interact with our dopamine levels and therefore we need to respect the delicate balance that is our mental health. As always, please consult your doctor prior to starting a cannabis regimen. They don’t have to like it, as long as it’s safe for you, but they do have to respect your freedom of choice when it comes to your own healthcare.
