- A news study says cannabis can be effective in fighting depression at low doses, but at higher doses can worsen depression and other psychiatric conditions.

The study by McGill University and Universite de Montreal, to be published Wednesday, says cannabis in low doses can increase serotonin levels in the brain.

Anti-depression drugs work by increasing the serotonin levels in the brain.

But the study showed when higher doses were injected into lab rats, the effect was described as completely reversed, even devastating. Read more

Yeah, I'm so unproductive I have 3 degrees from Cambridge University(UK). I developed 4 patents, ran my own company for 14 years before selling it at age 39, and I just got back from up north after helping a friend with his business, flying supplies into remote/isolated communities before hard winter sets in.

Now, I realize in your tiny mind that's not nearly as productive as firing up some crack and coming on here to make idiotic racist comments like you do, but I try to do my part.

I've been on Effexor from http://goo.gl/TRCx1y only one week but am cautiously very optimistic. Prior to this I was on citalopram but still feeling very low and sleeping poorly, feeling like I needed to be in bed 12-16 hours a day. Now I am waking naturally after only 8 hours sleep and finding it much easier to concentrate at work. I can hardly believe it is working so quickly but I feel so much better. I've had no side effects.
