Medicinal Marijuana Review / Mood Disorders

Mac Strain is 50 percent Indica and 50 percent Sativa. THC levels can be as high as 25 % or as low as 17 %. This makes it easier to dose than weaker or stronger strains. It’s often used to treat everyday stress in those who have mood disorders.

There are several types of mood disorders. The ones most people are familiar with include anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder. These are typically treated with SSRI’s, a type of antidepressant that targets the serotoninergic system in the brain. Many of those with mood disorders also have chronic pain as well as everyday stresses and pains. Some in medical marijuana states may choose to use a prescription for medical marijuana for these conditions, but it is often used off label as a treatment for everyday forms of anxiety, depression, and mood instability, especially combined with everyday pains.

Some people find marijuana does wonders for their anxiety while others find it may increase anxiety; therefore, it is up to the patient and his/her doctor to decide if marijuana is right for stress in the context of an anxiety disorder. Scientists do not yet know why some people respond with relaxation and others have a panic reaction but this is a current area of research. One theory is that some people are simply having an allergic reaction to some component of the plant. As mast cells attack the allergens and release histamine, it can cause blood pressure fluctuations, rapid heartbeat, and itching. Weed is not known to cause life-threatening allergic reactions in persons without an extensive history of life-threatening anaphylactic reactions in the past to other allergens.

Depressed mood may respond to Mac Strain marijuana, especially a depressive mood not complicated by anxiety. Depressed moods caused by everyday stress, inflammation, and inactivity caused by desk jobs may respond to the anti-inflammatory effect of marijuana. Also, the inflammation caused by a standard western diet can be partly offset by the use of marijuana, although cannabis can temporarily increase blood pressure and can be detrimental to those with high blood pressures.  Reasonable, controlled use of cannabis can steadily reduce stress levels and lead to more positive outcomes in those experiencing periods of enhanced stress.

Social Media Reviews





Mac Strain can have high THC levels so the more heavy strains are great for experienced smokers. Excitement and energy rev up with the first hits of this fragrant weed. You will first get a brain buzz, relaxing your thoughts and focusing them on more exploratory rather than fearful or stressful thoughts.  Your thoughts will turn toward pleasant conversation, music, and visual arts. You will have a greater appreciation for simply being and sharing life with friends and family.

After the head high has filled your mind, your body will feel light and relaxed. You may feel like you are floating freely through life, even if your body also feels like staying still and enjoying the pleasurable tingles that radiate out from the head, through the spine, and into the extremities. You will have a great balance of stimulation and relaxation. Have some snacks in case of the munchies and a soft pillow in case you decide to take a nap.
