As someone who has battled depression since my teens I am very interested to see more THC and CBD research being done around depression. When I decided to go off of anti-depressants after more than a decade of use, smoking pot was the only thing that help the transition. I have found that smoking helps me especially in social situations and even in my day to day. After reading articles about the new research being done, I wonder about the effects smoking is having for the long term. With many reports receiving "mixed results" I can't help but wonder if there are some individuals that cannabis alleviates depression and some where cannabis exacerbates the issue. Perhaps it is time for me to switch to CBD more that THC.... I'd love to hear from other people in similar situations and see how cannabis effects them.
