Abstract

The endocannabinoid system explains the association between cannabis use and depression. Many clinical trials reveals that a relatively low cannabis dose has potentially positive impacts while higher have negative impacts. While some studies shows less harmful andpotentially positive impacts of cannabis use in depression, it is inadequate to recommend cannabis as a perfect treatment for depression. Heavy cannabis use is associated with depressive symptoms such as lack of sleep, apathy, and cognitive deficits. Cannabis consumers have a higher risk of depression compared to non-users. However, the study found that depression may influence individuals to use cannabis. Thus, the association between cannabis consumption and depression is comprehensive. This paper explores the relationship between cannabis consumption and depression.
