Let’s start by saying that living with depression is never easy. While a lot is known, depression is still a complicated mental health condition, with doctors often differing on opinions. For the longest time, cannabis users have claimed that some strains do help in easing depression. To be fair, while some evidence exists, there is a need for extensive research to know how cannabis may help those dealing with depression. If you are suffering from depression and believe that cannabis can help, here are some strains worth considering.

  1. Jack Herer. Named after the legendary cannabis activist, Jack Herer was developed somewhere in the 80s. Although this is a sativa-dominant hybrid, you can expect a calming and happy high. There is this nice piney and wooden taste to this strain, and the primary terpenes include terpinolene and caryophyllene. The THC content of this strain is around 15% or more. On days when you are low on motivation, this is all you will need.

  2. Harlequin. There are only a few strains that deliver both THC and CBD, and Harlequin is one of them. It is around 75% sativa, so you can expect to clear your mind, while the presence of CBD reduces the effects of THC that can cause anxiety at times. The strain contains around 15% CBD and around 10% THC, so this is more of an ideal choice for many dealing with depression.

  3. Granddaddy Purple. This is an indica-dominant strain with genetics of Purple Urkle and Big Bud. This is best reserved for nighttime use with THC content of around 20% or more. The berry undertones of this strain is quite evident, and you can expect a high that will ease your mind without trying hard.

  4. Sour Diesel. If you are looking for the perfect sativa, look no further. Sour Diesel is a potent strain with THC content between 20% and 25%. While the head rush can sometimes feel overwhelming with this one, you can expect to have your mood and mind uplifted in no time.

  5. Pineapple Express. This is again a very potent strain with THC content of around 25%, and most users claim that they felt energetic and happy after consuming this strain. While the strain is often more recommended for nausea, it can be a good choice for those with depression too.

Do your homework on THC content and origins of strains before you pick one. If needed, consult a dispensary for options that are ideal for your symptoms.
