I have noticed that my moods are much more stable since starting cannabis. I use it once in the evening. I've got both oils and dry herb. I purchase 2 products, one high in THC and one in CBD. They have different but complimentary effects. I end up combining them roughly CBD:THC = 1:1 or 2:1.

Without the THC, I don't get as much brain 'reset'. The THC is also what seems to lower my obsessiveness / rumination.

Overall, the biggest improvement is in things like sleep, appetite, anhedonia and brain overactivity. I would agree with the notion of it being a mood stabilizer. It really helps me 'let go' in the evenings (I have a problem with 'sundowning' - or becoming more active towards bedtime).

The is evidence of excessive inflammation the brains of bipolars. Many mood stabilizers have anti-inflammatory effects. Cannabanoids are particularly effective at lowering brain inflammation, and in many studies, they exhibit neuroprotective effects.

I still find that I need the low dose of lithium. Suprisingly, it seems to work a lot better, and I have fewer side effects when I'm using cannabis.
