A recent study of people diagnosed with clinical depression has found that those using medical marijuana had lower depression scores than those who were not cannabis users. Researchers also determined that study participants who began using medicinal cannabis in a follow-up period saw a reduction in both depression and anxiety symptoms.

Medical marijuana may help to improve the symptoms of depression and anxiety, as well as help with sleep difficulties. If you are struggling with these conditions, talk to your doctor about whether medical marijuana could be right for you.
