All over the world, thousands of people suffer from mental health disorders like depression, anxiety and addiction, and most of them rely on medical intervention to battle a chemical imbalance in the brain. Recently, a study on mice has shown that using edibles marijuana has some benefit to depression and anxiety. THC and CBD can potentially help in combatting the symptoms of mental illness.

Current statistics show that more than 40 million people aged 18 and above suffer from anxiety. Of these patients, only 36 percent are getting treatment. Anxiety is caused by many factors, including genetics, life events and brain chemistry. It can lead to depression and vice versa. Medication and therapy are proven treatment methods for mental disorders. However, we are seeing the potential of mail order cannabis edibles in helping with depression, anxiety, addiction and other mental illnesses.

Research has shown that people suffering from mild to moderate depression and anxiety has a big possibility of benefiting from using medical edibles marijuana. Do you feel very doubtful and that the world seems to be crashing down on you? Or perhaps you constantly overthink things, making you feel very anxious about the consequences of things? Such symptoms of fear, sadness and racing thoughts can make anyone miserable and can be life-threatening. Those looking for some relief might find it in cannabis edibles.

It was found that endocannabinoids, which are chemical compounds found in the brain that activate similar receptors as THC, an active component in medical cannabis, might be helpful in treating depression resulting from chronic stress. In studies performed on rats, researchers found that chronic stress is reduced with endocannabinoids production, which affect emotions, cognitive skills and behavior. It is linked with increased appetite, decreased feelings of anxiety and pain, and overall peaceful feeling.

The human body naturally produces these kinds of compounds, which is the same to the chemicals found in marijuana. A reduction in the production of endocannabinoids might be one of the reasons why depression, anxiety and addiction is linked to severe stress. After learning of the potential benefits of marijuana to mental health illnesses, experts are now looking into the best edible marijuana strain to consume, considering that there are several variants of cannabis that can give varied effects.

Typically, medical marijuana strains with high CBD (cannabidiol) and low THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) compounds have a big potential of effectiveness in combating symptoms associated with these mental disorders. THC is the psychoactive component of marijuana that gives that “high” feeling while CBD does not give any intoxicating effect. While CBD is legal in most places, it might help to still check out indica strains or those strains with higher CBD levels than THC.

Without the right treatment, depression, anxiety, addiction and other mental health issues can be debilitating, driving people to try just about anything to ease the overwhelming feelings they bring. Most depression and anxiety medications bring about detrimental side effects so it would help to discuss with a medical professional the treatment options that are best or you. Most importantly, seek professional if you suffer from any mental illness as soon as you can.
