Can Marijuana Treat Depressive Disorders?

Published

on

 

Medical marijuana is getting the same popularity as a magic pill, if not more. With a little research, scientists have collected a lot of evidence on the wonders it can do including mental health problems.

According to a study last year, people who used marijuana reported to have fewer symptoms of depression. Smoking marijuana alleviates signs of anxiety and depressive attacks within a short time. However, the effect does not work in the long run, and the symptoms appear again. This study appears online in the Journal of Affective Disorders.

Scientists from Washington State University in Pullman conducted this study. They examined data from around 12000 people through a mobile application. The application enables medical marijuana consumers to keep track of apparent symptoms before the substance use. They can also note down the outcomes in the form of signs after cannabis use. This way, they can compare the two results, and the researchers used the comparison for their study.

There is little research on the effects of marijuana on depressive disorders. Most of the research is linking with the properties of the active compound tetrahydrocannabinol which is present in the substance. According to scientists from the study, the subjects under interest did not consume the product in lab premises. It was instead an observational study that allowed the users to consume the product in their comfort zone instead of a laboratory.

Marijuana with the adjusted ratio is helpful in managing the symptoms

Marijuana with a ratio adjusted according to higher cannabidiol (CBD) and low tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) was efficient in reducing depression-related symptoms. However, the long term effects turned out to be perplexing. They found that the signs in the long term aggravated.

In the case of anxiety, there was no fixed ratio required as in depression to alleviate the symptoms. Ten puffs were enough to lower the levels of stress in the users.

An important factor to acknowledge is the importance of both active compounds in easing the symptoms. CBD and THD both are equally significant in treating depressive disorder if the ratio is correct.

Gender wise, women encountered lesser symptoms of anxiety and depression in using marijuana in comparison to men. All these results point towards the fact that proper awareness and guidance to people is the need of the hour so that they can benefit from the substance.

Marijuana can also alleviate symptoms of chronic stress

There has been another research in 2015 in the University of Buffalo’s Research Institute on Addictions. The scientists examined that endocannabinoids are associated with better moods in people. These are chemicals present in the brain and activate the same receptors as tetrahydrocannabinol.

On rodent testing, the scientists concluded that endocannabinoids are not produced in sufficient quantities in people suffering from chronic stress. THC could fill up the scarcity and hence could be used as a substitute for the chemical. Not only that, it might help normalize the chemical function and reduce depressive disorder symptoms.

Are the effects only short term?

A little evidence is present to prove that cannabis can be used as an antidepressant. However, there are some significant loopholes in this evidence. According to a phenomenon Amotivational Syndrome, people who consume marijuana lose empathic skills. Moreover, they tend to isolate themselves and have a lesser than average capability to carry out daily activities.

So even though marijuana shortly treats the apparent signs of depressive disorders, it lacks the tendency to provide a permanent cure. Also, scientists suggest adopting to vaping as it is less harmful than smoking.

There is a dire need for all organizations and researching bodies to sit on a table and have an extended framework for research. With more states legalizing the medical marijuana laws and decriminalizing possession, there is a hope that scientists will dive deeper into looking multi dimensionally into the problem. This way they will be able to find ways to improvise the potential of the substance for the treatment of depression.
