Rich in cannabinoids, cannabis is used as a medical property. TCH and CBD are the two most prevalent and widely researched components in cannabis.

Let’s come to know what exactly depression is –
Depression is a severe mental illness that makes it difficult for people to live their lives to the fullest. To sum up, it is more than simply feeling sad.
Several symptoms of depression exist in human feelings, such as changes in appetite, having suicidal thoughts, feelings of guilt, and so on. If you feel uninterested in the activities that you used to love someday, it can be a strong symptom of suffering from depression that you are ignoring.
Cannabis and the symptoms of depression –
Anxiety: Cannabis can easily fight anxiety. Cannabis products with low THC show a promising result in the people suffering from anxiety.
Stress: Depression patients often experience high stress levels. And cannabis removes the undue stress among them to some extent.
Nausea: Nausea is a typical side effect of antidepressants. And one of the active components of cannabis, CBD can help here to mitigate nausea from antidepressants. It reduces nausea and vomiting.
Several kinds of research on cannabis as a treatment option for depression –
In 1621, in The Anatomy of Melancholy, Robert Burton suggested that cannabis could reduce the symptoms of depression.
A most recent study on rats has discovered that the body produces fewer endocannabinoids that help to regulate the mood and other regular bodily functions in the time of constant stress. It also suggested that cannabis can produce the endocannabinoids in the body where there is a deficiency.
Another study at the University of Washington on animals declared that cannabis appeared to induce the effects like those of antidepressant drugs.
