I've been using cannabis 3 years now but always India. Definitely NO SATIVA! DON'T WANT THAT MANIC. Great for mellowing out in the evening...🌬😌🧘‍♀️

I believe medical marijuana helps relieve symptoms there is no cure.

@Janieg yes! While you are in a manic state, Sativas are your worst enemy. I really don’t like Sativas even when I’m not experiencing a manic episode. Indicas are definitely the way to go!

Totally agree. It was a learning curve to get the exact strain to work. I also use medically for other health issues so I find an 80/20% combo a nice mix. 80% THC Indica/20% CBD Sativa. You need a little CBD for the medical to help. The THC is the part that helps to relax and mellow out. Sometimes I use more of a 100% THC product to go to sleep, but if it is over used or hit too hard it can mess with the thinking and sleeping will be more difficult. I think sometimes we feel like MORE IS BETTER, but in the case of cannabis and sleep, less can better!!😌

   Work very well. I have seven pins in my leg and arthritis in my back. And with the bipolar and anxiety it certainly helps. I just got some AK 47 which is very very good and can become like a couch potato if you need to ha ha ha ha

I just finished; and gave him....a Collage letter to my husband he’s going to have 38 years sober on May 5 so I gave about eight pages of my inner soul through Scripps of paper and pictures........bipolarhope.com

I believe it does, you just have to find what strains work well with you. Usually my depression is what I'm combating, so generally I stick to sativa to bring me up a little more to a normal level. When I smoke indica I just get really anxious and nervous.

I have found it to be quite helpful.  Takes the edge off.  I prefer the hybrids of both Sativa and indica.  I can’t say it makes me feel good, but it does help with more intense emotions whether depression, anxiety or mania.

It calms the beast in me.

 Even among sativas or indicas there are lots of differences.  I use the tinctures and only use a small amount if my anxiety is really high ( no pun intended).  It does provide some calm but it also contributes to racing thoughts. It just doesn't bother me that much when I'm mellow.  After it wears off I notice a bit of rebound and often feel depressed.   Still hoping for that perfect elixir.  Doctor advises avoiding cannabis since there are so many unknowns.  It was all I had while trying to deal with my illneses on my own and then waiting for an appt.   If things get really stressful, I'll take a small amount to take the edge off.

I have medical marijuana for back pain. I was curious how it would affect my bipolar. I have tried both strains and hybrids. It helps me sleep and Mellows me out a little bit but I would never give up my meds for it. My biggest problem with it is my memory. I can be in mid-sentence and forget what I'm saying.
