You’ve meditated. You’ve increased your daily intake of natural light. You’ve exercised (although you absolutely hate that). You’ve taken a break from social media. You’ve done everything they told you to do, but you still feel depressed.
You’re not alone. In fact, you’re among 3 million other people who deal with the disorder annually. And while medications and other remedies exist, they don’t always prove to be successful. But when one remedy fails, another one prevails and her name is marijuana.
Know that there are multiple ways to consume marijuana, you can eat or drink it, rub it into your skin, vape, smoke and much more. Ask the budtenders at your local dispensary which products have the strains listed and then pick how you want to put it into your body.

Mean green, depression fighting machine. Bruce Banner aka the HULK is a hybrid strain that isn’t for the faint. With a high THC concentrate, some BB is just what you need to make those grey skies turn blue. However, this power bud is better smoked when productivity isn’t required.
If you can get past the godawful name, you’ll be just fine with this sativa strain. It is is a little pungent and kind of skunky, but the happiness this strain induces is perfect for the worst of days.

If lumberjacks had a taste, they’d taste like Jack Herer. Woody and earthy, this sativa strain is the perfect depression fighting strain. It’ll have you feeling happy and uplifted and is known to promote productivity as well.
Cotton Candy Kush
Cotton Candy Kush ranks pretty high on the happy scale – and this is a great thing if you’re suffering from depression. The flowery sweet fragrance will invigorate your senses while also uplifting your spirits.
This shiny bud will definitely give you a body high, coupled by happiness and euphoria. It’s a sativa so the THC concentration is a little high, but the sweet and strong aromas make this strain a definite go-to if you need your spirits lifted.
J-1 will be your new day one. A hybrid that’s citrusy and earthy, this bud will deliver a strong buzz that will uplift you without immobilizing you.
Cherry Pie, sweet oh my! This hybrid strain will relax you, fill you with joy and curb that depression. The sweet cherry (you guessed it) flavors is slightly intoxicating, but it’s the perfect picker upper during the day.
This hybrid strain is sativa dominant so you can expect your typical sativa effects: happiness, euphoria, invigoration. However, it’s great for combating depressive thoughts and feelings and its sweet pine aroma is quite pleasant.
