“On average, 95.8% of users reported symptom relief, 2.1% reported symptom worsening, and 2.1% reported no change in symptom intensity level,” wrote the study. They also gave the group a list of 47 side effects; 17 were negative, 19 were positive, and 11 were context-specific, meaning it could be good or bad depending on the consumer’s wants and needs.

The study measured said side effects using dummy variables to indicate whether the user felt any of the listed side effects in a category, “while the continuous variable measures the proportion of total side effects in that category that the user selected.”

Interestingly, Supplemental Table S1 demonstrates the common negative side effects were dry mouth in 33%, 27% felt foggy, while positive side effects had 64% feeling relaxed and 57% feeling peaceful. In terms of the context-specific side effects, 53% felt high, and 31% felt tingly.

With a whopping 95.8% of users feeling satisfied with the outcome of cannabis use for depression, it’s a given that marijuana is incredibly beneficial for those struggling with mood-based disorders.
