I stumbled upon a great documentary about marijuana and mental health by David Suzuki on his show ‘The Nature of Things’.  This documentary isn’t a hit piece on smoking weed and acknowledges that most people are able to partake with no ill effects.

There are however, some people who are adversely effected and who have mental health issues amplified or triggered by smoking marijuana.  One reason is that weed is getting stronger and is being bred for higher THC levels which cause the ‘high’ of weed and less CDB which lessens the psychoactive effect.

The Trailer is below:

I’ve covered in the blog the link between using marijuana and anxiety, depression and marijuana addiction. More to come on marijuana and schizophrenia and other mental health issues.

Please comment below on your thoughts on the video or if you have had similar experiences!
