Bipolar Disorder falls under the umbrella of mood disorder. Previously known as “manic depression”, it manifests in periods of intense euphoria (a.k.a. mania) followed by periods of extreme depression. According to the Canadian Mental Health Association, 2% of people have bipolar and it affects men and women equally.
Instead of prescription medication, many individuals use cannabis to help manage their bipolar disorder symptoms (preferably in conjunction with therapy). This is a lesser understood mood disorder, but a handful of studies correlate the therapeutic qualities of cannabis as potential treatment. Bipolar can occur in both depressive and euphoric episodes. Therefore, the best strain of cannabis may differ depending on the mental state of the user at the time.
For this reason, Fair Canna Care offers a variety of strains in our shop. Plus, we make it easy to order medical marijuana online! Check out our F.A.Q.’s for more information.
