Feel drained or sad after use of marijuana

Hey to give some background I’m 16 years old and depressed sometimes I use marijuana as a way to feel better and numb my depression for a while. And to be honest it works all my anxiety and hatred to myself goes away and I become happy however I always noticed the next day my depression is back with much greater force for about a couple of hours. Does anyone else feel sad after using marijuana the next day or is it a mind thing because I was happy the day before the next day I am no longer under the affects and feel even shittier because I am back to reality can anyone help me clarify my situation thanks.

  1. My personal opinion is that people shouldn’t use cannabis recreationally until they’re well into their 20s. There is still a lot to be learned about how it affects a developing brain. That’s not to say if it’s the best medicine it shouldn’t be used, but that we shouldn’t approach it as if we’re 100% certain that it won’t affect certain areas of cognitive development.

  2. You are only treating a symptom of the underlying problem. If you just continue to sweep the dust under the rug eventually the dust can’t help but seep back out again. I highly suggest speaking to a professional regarding your anxiety and depression to find the root cause and get some help.
