Cannabis for treatment in bipolar disorder ?
Yes please says Betty who 4 weeks ago was suicidal enough to telephone the crisis team. Now anyone with mental health problems know how scary the men in white coats can be.
Betty has bipolar but only realised 4 weeks ago at the ripe old age of 50.
Betty decided that the only thing that would help was cannabis .. she’d used it before, about 6 years ago and it worked then too.
Betty was suicidal and now Betty is writing a book, she’s blogging, she has basically turned that mania and depression into something she can manage. After only 4 weeks of using the illegal drug she is a fully functioning member of society again. Well maybe not fully but she’s happy and that’s all that matters.
