 Can marijuana help with depression?

Yes and no. It mainly depends upon two things, your personality and how you are using it. Medical marijuana treatments can help people deal with many symptoms. Medical marijuana is mainly used for pain and joint inflammation. 

But it is also used by many people suffering from depression. Research shows that medical marijuana can be beneficial for mental health. 

The brain has chemical compounds known as endocannabinoids. They are linked to feelings of overall well-being. Currently, researchers have found out that medical marijuana can be beneficial in the restoration of “normal” endocannabinoid function. 

It can also help in stabilizing mood. Scientists at the University of Buffalo have been looking for medical marijuana treatments for depression caused due to chronic stress. 

Scientists did their studies on animals and discovered that chronic stress may suppress the brain’s production of endocannabinoids, which play a role in motor control, behavior, emotions, and cognition. But, marijuana can help in restoring normal levels and functioning of endocannabinoids. This can help in easing symptoms of depression.
