Mental disorders encompass many diseases including the abnormalities of thoughts, emotions, behaviour and relationships with others, such as schizophrenia, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, personality disorders, amongst others (World Health Organization, 2017). Researchers currently have been focusing on the study of the use of medical cannabis for the treatment of mental illnesses (Devinsky et al., 2014). There is low grade evidence to support the use of cannabis for depression, anxiety, though for PTSD the evidence is increasing (National Academies of Sciences, 2017).

We suggest to start cannabis in conjunction with your family physician.
