204. here's a link for you to read

doctors have long listed cannabis as an antidepressant b/c of its mood-elevating qualities. Those doctors in the U.S. who have done the most research into this substance refer to it as an antidepressant.

There is now research that indicates the way in which it may function like an SSRI to alleviate depression - doctors also do not know the exact way that SSRIs function but they can demonstrate the way in which the brain seems to respond in ways that may indicate the route by which it and cannabis alleviate depression (and also the way it may help PTSD sufferers as well.)
