Marijuana can help battle depression, anxiety, PTSD, and addiction

Men’s Journal featured UBC research that found medical cannabis can play a role in treating mental illness, including addiction.

“There is so little guidance in this area, which inspired us to do this work,” said lead study author Zach Walsh, a psychology professor at UBC’s Okanagan campus. “I get so many calls from colleagues asking what to tell patients who use cannabis to help deal with an alcohol dependency or depression or a bad back.”
