CBD and Mental Health


CBD stands for cannabidiol. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the chemical compound name for Cannabis or Marijuana. Sativa strains of marijuana have been found useful for both depression and anxiety. In addition to understanding the strains, it is important to know that each strain also has its own ratio of CBD to THC. Cannabis sativa refers to the hemp plant which is low in cannabinoids and used industrially rather than medicinally. Sativa strains are most often thought of as energizing and mood-lifting. This can become a complicated decision along with a frustrating process if a consumer is uninformed. It is best to look for a strain which will alleviate your symptoms while minimizing intoxication and other side effects.


The general rule of thumb is to find out what symptoms you would like to treat. Many people enjoy a CBD dominant strain for pain or nausea. People also enjoy a THC dominant strain for depression and anxiety.


CBD is a legal product under North Carolina law — even when it contains small amounts of THC. Most CBD available in stores and dispensaries have less than 0.3% THC by dry weight. The low 0.3% is not an illegal drug, any trace amount of THC above this would be considered a controlled substance. As a holistic approach to symptom relief associated with anxiety and depression CBD has evidence based positive outcomes as a treatment alternative. CBD products vary in dosage, concentration, and intake. CBD should not be a replacement for prescribed medication by a treating medical professional. Consult you prescribing medical provider before trying any new supplemental treatment.
