Doctor's Advice On Using Marijuana To Treat Anxiety and Depression

If you’re struggling with depression, I would recommend being evaluated by a physician who specializes in depression before initiating medical marijuana or increasing the dosage.

But unfortunately, this is where we are without a specific timeline as to when it will sort itself out.
