Debating:The harm(s) attributed to Pharmaceutical v.s. Cannabis treatments of Stress, Anxiety, Depression, OCD, Etc etc...
To the question at hand, I was lucky enough to chose a rather efficient SSRI when I was 18. I had few side effects, and it seemed to work well enough to get me back into life. I watched my sisters not have such luck in their quest, ending up in jail, abusing boyfriends, abusing themselves. We all medicate with cannabis now. Some of us more than others, as needed. Personally, since learning of CBD, I feel that I've regained quite a bit of mental clarity and acuity that I could sense was slipping while on SSRIs and combined with a nasty drinking habit. That is one big thing, when I use cannabis regularly, it's wildly successful at calming other habits. The use of CBD has actually helped lower my recreational use of cannabis! It helps cure its own "addiction" lol I also use a cannabis lotion that is AMAZING for wrinkles... but that's another story. I believe that doctors, and patients, need to open themselves up to the idea of cannabis in addition to their meds, BUT ONLY with informative, tested material. Unfortunately, with so many options, lack of information, and the personalized approach needed, it's hard for many to adequately apply cannabis to their ailments.

Raw cannabis (juicing) is also a very safe method, and has led to what some feel may be the discovery of a disorder known as cannabinoid deficiency. Some people, through juicing, have found they don't need any of their medicines. Also, there is no link that can actually show cannabis causes cancer. (especially when many studies show it actually KILLS cancer) The most successful medication for asthma is actually to vaporize cannabis, as it acts as an immediate bronchodilator. The effects can be achieved through edibles and tinctures, but aren't as fast, effective, and generally have more potent side effects. Personally, I don't think managing side-effects means it's working, it just means you're still having to work harder for it to kind of work. So who's infantile about their counterculture?

Having been on SSRI's on and off throughout my life, and also having consumed cannabis for the duration of my adult life, and can 100% absolutely testify to the healing powers of cannabis, and, more importantly, the benefits of having targeted, applied medicine on an as needed basis in order to deal with certain mental issues (also anxiety and depression). I am no longer on SSRI's and am using cannabis as my only medicine, specifically high CBD and sativa dominant strains. Sativa dominant strains could agitate certain other mental disorders, though so can SSRIs when improperly, or half-hazardly prescribed. I've seen both sides, and I'll take the non lethal effects of cannabis any day. It starts like this, when something is responsible for triggering the body's healing process (endocannabinoid system) then logic must dictate that any application of this trigger will result in some healing. If you target the depression and anxiety with specific, personalized strains (by cannabinoid and terpene content/ratio) you will have much more success in managing these mental issues. You can't just go buy some weed and feel better. If you use an indica for a prolonged period, you can actually exacerbate your condition. (I only use it at night now, to help me sleep, and accompany all of my THC rich strains with CBD in order to protect neuron activity -and it works!) To a point made above. The combination of cannabis and positive thinking are the best tools to bring yourself out of depression. If I had more information on cannabis, safe access to it, from a younger age, I wouldn't have ever had to be on SSRIs, which led to a big drinking problem and that "numbness" I don't ever want to be like that. This way, I can medicate as needed, and don't have to when my chemistry is stable. also, smoking cannabis (correct strains) actually works as a bronchodilator and can improve asthma symptoms, when smoked, vaprized (no combustion) or eaten. Also, raw cannabis works, w/no high.
