Medicinal Marijuana Review/lethargy

Island Sweet Skunk is 20 percent Indica and 80 percent Sativa. THC levels can be between 16 % and 25 %. The exhilarating Sativa stimulation makes it a good choice to fight lethargy.

Lethargy is defined as a lack of energy or enthusiasm. It has both physical and mental aspects. Physically, there may be a reduction in movement overall. Mentally there may be mental inertia and lack of motivation to get things done. One may lose interest in pleasurable activities such as eating and having sex.

Lethargy can be caused by viral infections, bacterial infections, parasites, metabolic disturbances, and autoimmune disease or be of unknown cause. Conditions like Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia can present with lethargy as a main and primary symptom.

Lethargy can be strongly related to pain. The experience of pain creates a lack of enthusiasm and restricts movement. Because of the relationship of pain to lethargy, removing a source of the pain can improve symptoms of mental and physical lethargy. This is where Island Sweet Skunk’s powerful cannabinoids can come in. They can relieve pain, increasing motivation to move, and get things done. This weed will not cause couchlock or make you feel lazy. It will put some fire in your step and give you the energy to move around and get to work on important projects. Just don’t operate heavy machinery. It can also improve moods when the depressed mood is the source of lethargy. It will have you thinking in a more positive way and fill the brain with positive neurotransmitters to restore the balance of resilience factors in the brain.
