Yes, SAD is a diagnosed and very real medical diagnostic stemming from depression.
Seasonal Affective Disorder is considered a subtype of depression disorder and can affect people of any age.
People with SAD frequently experience sleep issues like insomnia and have trouble getting up in the mornings, with a very strong desire to feel like you can’t do anything, or you don’t want to do anything at all.
Symptoms of SAD may include:
Depression can have an adverse effect on your day-to-day life, making it difficult to get out of bed in the morning and find enjoyment in anything.
One way to try to alleviate symptoms of depression is by cooking with cannabis, and you can also smoke, vape, take gummies, or use oils.
Cannabis may help moods, stimulate appetite, and reduce anxiety which are all common side effects associated with depression.
I always suggest you speak with your medical professional prior to taking cannabis on your own to treat any ailment, issue or condition.
If you’ve been cleared by your Doctor, or you’ve already been consuming cannabis to help with depression, try making gummies at home! It’s a great and easy way to enjoy the same effects, in a tasty gummy bear form.
