Yes, I have been using medical cannabis with very good success (almost 1 year now).

My depression is improved (basically in remission) as is my anxiety and insomnia. The biggest improvement is in my insomnia. I use a combination of CBD and THC. Probably in the ratio ratio CBD:THC = 2:1.

I still use 300mg of lithium and occasionally a bit of mirtazapine. I have not used benzodiazapines in about a year (I was previously a chronic user).

The main issue for CBD is cost. For THC, it is cheap to get a large effect. For CBD, doses in the 100's of mg could cose you $10+ a day, without coverage, which is too high for me.

I use between 20-50mg a day of CBD and 1-2mg of THC a day. However, I don't use THC daily.

Cannabis has don't wonders for my sypmptom profile: undersleeping, overthinking, anxiety, low appetite, anhedonia etc. I can use a higher THC product 2-3 times a week and have not had any issues with tollerance or withdrawal.

Suprisingly, the most significant effect is on rumination. After using THC, I just want to move forward. I can 'see' how the rumination isn't helping me and I can very easily chose then to let go.
