I self medicated with cannabis for years. It’s great for anxiety and depression. Unfortunately my brain got used to it and I became dependent. I haven’t been the same since I quit. I think that cannabis has the potential to unlock portions of the brain that enhance emotion and mood. I hope they come out with a cannavis based antipsychotic. That would be incredible
