Is THC or CBD better for treating depression?

Depression comes from thoughts, the thoughts produce chemicals and also emotions.

It’s not likely you are going to be feeling at peace and happy if you are thinking about the eviction notice on your door, or being ushered into the back of a cop car. With all that being said, I don’t like THC/weed, I don’t like the high. A lot of my friends do, but I just don’t like it.

CBD is much more subtle, you don’t really get “high”, but I can have a very nice calming effect.

I learned to throw everything at my depression, so I use affirmations, meditation, and CBD now, and I am in pretty good shape, the best shape, mentally, of my life. If I were you, I would try a pretty high dosage of CBD to start, see how you like it, there shouldn’t be any big negative side effects. You may want to also try a vape. A vape gets into your system almost instantly and the absorption rate is higher, you get more CBD in your system

I would try only CBD at first, play around with the dosage, see how you feel, give it enough time to work, a few days/weeks, etc. don’t be in a hurry.

There are also products where you can pick whatever combination of THC/CBD you like, dependent on if you get drug tested or if you like/don’t like the “high” from THC.
Thanks a lot!
