HHC for Bipolar Disorder
Although some patients assert that cannabis alleviates mania and/or depression symptoms, no systematic studies of cannabinoids in bipolar disorder were found. Delta(9)-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) may have sedative, hypnotic, anxiety-reducing, antidepressant, antipsychotic, and anticonvulsant properties. Unadulterated manufactured cannabinoids, like dronabinol and nabilone and explicit plant separates containing THC, are accessible and can be conveyed sublingually. In the treatment of bipolar disorder, controlled trials of these cannabinoids are now recommended.
