5 Prescription Drugs That Could Be Replaced By Marijuana
Endocannabinoids are naturally-occurring chemicals that bind with the same receptors in the body as the phytocannabinoids found in cannabis. Research shows that chronic stress can cause a reduction in endocannabinoid production which may contribute to excessive feelings of sadness and depression.
Interestingly, scientists have discovered that mood can be stabilized and depression symptoms eased by supplementing cannabinoids through cannabis therapy, especially for non-heavy users (some speculate that prolonged marijuana use could exacerbate symptoms of depression but more research is needed to be sure). Strains that can help treat depression include Maui Waui, Durban Poison and Strawberry Cough.
