Marijuana offers many therapeutic benefits for supporting mood and overall wellbeing including reducing anxiety and depression. Now research suggests that the cannabinoids responsible for these effects (THC & CBD) are significantly helping patients with bi-polar disorder.
“Researchers at the University of Oslo in Norway published the results of a study conducted on 133 bipolar patients. What they found was that patients who used cannabis regularly actually performed better than non-users on tests of verbal fluency and learning.
In another study, researchers at the Zucker Hillside Hospital in New York found that regular marijuana use was linked to higher levels of attention, processing speed and memory among the 200 bipolar patients that the researchers followed over a 9-year span.”
