Emotions are energies that we feel. It is our way of feeling our thoughts, and our emotions reflect the quality of our thoughts and our actions. There is no denying the fact that we are feeling beings. It is the uncaring, the lack of heart and compassion from others, and the steel coldness of the mind that hurts our souls, our very being. Every person, at some time, undergoes painful life experiences, it is an absolute certainty. Pain and suffering are universal that nobody is immune to. How we relate internally to our own personal suffering, as well as the suffering of others, sheds much light on our personalities and how we manage our emotions.
These tragedies of feelings, of life itself, can be mitigated by cannabis in safe and effective ways. We seek soothing help with our struggles and cannabis can provide the relief to allow us to gather the strength and courage to carry on.
There is nothing in the pharmaceutical world that can equate with the effects that cannabis provides for the mental and emotion relief that so many seek. Because of its calming and modulating effects, cannabis not only touches on the body but on the mind and emotions. The most common treatment for depression are prescription SSRI drugs such as Prozac, Paxil, and Celexa. These affect the central nervous system and can alter emotions and moods. Although these drugs work for some people, negative side effects can occur, which include: disruptive sleep, digestive and sexual irregularities, and suicidal thoughts just to name a few.
Cannabis is a natural alternative to prescription antidepressants. Cannabis stimulates our innate endocannabinoid system with little to no unpleasant and potentially harmful side effects. This natural and ancient remedy offers patients peace of mind by enhancing mood, providing energy and focus, relieving anxiety and allowing for a good nights' rest that is often interrupted by intrusive thoughts.
