  3. CBD is great for pain, but using cannabis with THC for mental health issues is downright reckless. Weed DOWN-REGULATES your dopamine and endocannaniboid systems, leading to a propensity to long-term anxiety and depression. At the same time, proponents claim it treats anxiety and depression. In this way, weed copies the successful business model of blockbuster drugs like proton pump inhibitors. PPIโ€™s are used to treat acid reflux. If you try to go off them, the rebound effect is exponentially worse acid reflux. Likewise, if you use weed for anxiety/depression and then try to stop taking it, your anxiety/depression will be worse than ever. In other words, itโ€™s a band-aid that doesnโ€™t solve the root problem, doesnโ€™t just perpetuate the problem, but makes it massively worse. Americans love their โ€œmiracleโ€ drugs, from Valium, to Adderall, to SSRIโ€™s, and now weed. As the weed industry grows, the Next Big Thing will no doubt be cannabis dependence treatment programs.
