I have been using medical cannabis now for 1.5 years at (more or less) the exact same dose. I have not noticed a loss of effect (although some days I need a slightly higher dose)

The idea of memory loss is actually what I am going for! My depression is often associated with major rumination, racing thoughts, and inability to see the big picture.

I take cannabis at night and it slows my mind down to the point I can sleep. The 'memory wipe' literally makes it impossible for me to remember my problems. I can get a mental break for 10-12 hours and then get back up and face the day again.

As for amotivational syndrome, again this is a positive for me. At night, I need something to slow me down (as I often having sundowning, where I want to do more at night, which throws off my sleep).

After the dose wears off, my motivation, memory, concentration, focus all return (AFAIK) back to baseline. I just get a nice 10-12 hour vacation from my problems, which leaves me more able to tackle my problems upon return.

Many antidepressants indirectly work via a cannabinoid mechanism. The TCAs for example, require an intact endocannabanioid system in order to reduce HPA axis responsiveness. Cannabinoids also have antidepressant effects in animal models.

Interestingly, I also notice a mild psychedelic effect whereby I feel that something has changed in me 'spiritually' where I feel like I see a higher reality. I see my problems in a new context. I detach from them and see them like I would see somebody else's problems. When I return, I feel like my life is in a better position. Traditional meds don't do anything to enhance a spiritual recovery. For me at least (I know it sounds hokey) feeling connection to a higher reality is important for my mental health.
