From helping people deal with the cause of their anger issues to releasing people from the clutches of crippling anxiety, marijuana continues to help save people from themselves.
And as legalization spreads, the world is waking up and getting wise to the ways marijuana can be used to cure and aid the recovery of not just numerous physical conditions like autism, certain cancers and arthritis, but also mental illnesses like depression and anxiety.
Recent studies into the use of weed to treat the mind as well as the body are delivering some very interesting results, showing that medical marijuana can help people who suffer from bi-polar, depression and anxiety. Researchers have found that low doses of cannabis increases serotonin levels in the brain, helping improve mood disorders.
