Did you know that one in ten adults in the US has some form of depression? That means that there are almost twenty million people who suffer from this condition. There are significant medical marijuana benefits for depression, but some people don’t know about them.

Living under the weight of depression is tough. It affects nearly every part of your life, and you might feel like there’s nothing that will ever change that. The truth is that medical cannabis can be a viable treatment option, but you need to trust your treatment plan to a dedicated professional. 

Research about depression and medical cannabis is still in the early stages, but many people who self-treat with cannabis can attest to its positive effects. A recent study out of the University of Southern California showed that of people with depression, those who use medical marijuana have fewer symptoms than those who don’t.
