I have a number of patients who have done well with CBD and others who still require a pharmaceutical. Most anxiety patients do very well with CBD alone; patients with depression can use CBD but usually require some THC for mood elevation and because CBD alone can sometimes aggravate depression. For depression, I usually recommend a CBD:THC ratio in the 5:1-1:1 range. CBD also seems to be a mood stabilizer and has anti-psychotic benefits (as does low dose THC). Some patients with bipolar disorder do well with CBD:THC combinations. It’s best to be followed by a mental health provider and to also find a physician in your area who is a cannabis specialist to help you with this.
