Marijuana is an alternative medicine that has been used for centuries but grows in popularity each year. Social awareness continues to increase regarding the many benefits of cannabis use. One thing cannabis is known for is its mood-altering effects.

Many people with mood disorders, such as depression or anxiety, have success using cannabis to help them get a hold of their emotions. Those people feel more uplifted throughout the day, allowing them to get more done.

However, cannabis is not for everyone. So, does marijuana help or worsen depressive symptoms?

The Age-Old Question

The answer is both! Whether cannabis helps or worsens symptoms linked to depression is dependent on many factors, some uncontrollable. Some of these factors include:

  • Personality

  • Dosage

  • Delivery method

  • Age

  • Gender

  • Weight

  • Strain

  • THC content

For some people with depression, cannabis provides a helpful burst of energy allowing them to get more done and feel happier throughout their day. For others, however, marijuana may worsen symptoms and make them feel even more down.

It really depends on you as a person. One size does not fit all when it comes to cannabis, and its effects can vary quite a bit from person to person. So, whether or not cannabis can help you in particular is unknown until you give it a try.

Depression is not a qualifying condition for a medical card in Minnesota, but if you have a qualifying condition and depression, you can kill two birds with one stone, so to speak. If you get your medical card and find that cannabis helps with your depression, great!

If you get your medical card and feel uncomfortable with the mind-altering effects of cannabis or feel that it worsens depressive symptoms, no worries! You can always switch to a tincture, cream, patch, or oil with a low THC content so you don't have to worry about your medicine changing your mood or how you feel.
