    This is bullshit. Anyone who has bipolar knows that the depression that comes with it can feel like the depths of despair. I am bipolar and use marijuana and let me tell you, it’s like switching on a light inside of me, especiall if I’m depressed.

      This article is misleading and both true… Medical Marijuana is like any drug that we use to treat BP.. Its not for everyone… just like Latuda almost killed me ., Medical Marijuana is a godsend to me that has dramatically reduces manic episodes …. Now that we are able to start the processes of proper dosage it becomes a possible weapon against the fight to stabilize BP patients. The one thing I can tell you as a person that suffers from BP and that has gotten to the point of remission – We have to turn over EVERY stone to find what works best for the individual. I hope this article doesn’t stop patients to see if this is something the can benefit such as myself. Thank you for your help

        I’m so glad you’ve found something that works for you! My articles are not meant for personal diagnosis or treatment but rather a general reporting of literature available on the subject. Finding the right, personal treatment is between patients and our doctors. It’s all about finding what works best for you.

    My pdoc lets me substitute MMJ for benzos, and I take it safely concurrently with my lithium. IT WORKS! MMJ is a miracle for BP mood regulation. Ignore false AMA information. Articles like this perpetuate stigma.
