Studies have shown that plant based endocannabinoid medicines can potentially improve Depression symptoms.

Endocannabinoid medicines researchers believe that it’s potential benefits for depression are related to its positive effect on serotonin receptors in the brain. Low serotonin levels are likely connected to depression. Plant based medicine may affect how your brain’s chemical receptors respond to the serotonin that’s already in your system. Endocannabinoid medicine has anti-stress effects, which may reduce depression related to stress[1]. Plant based medicine compounds can help with improving mood[2] .
