Let’s face it. Being depressed sucks. Some days are way harder than others, and for times when you might need a little extra boost in the absence of having someone to talk to, a gentle puff of low-THC strains might buy you a few minutes of solace. It’s an important reminder though, that cannabis shouldn’t be the answer, and that talking to a professional or loved one is the best way to remove yourself from a dark place. With that said, these strains might help provide some relief in a pinch.
