Cannabis can be very helpful in treating bipolar disorder. I would reccomend strains or products with a high level of CBD, as it has anti-psychotic properties. Utilize india strains when you need to get some sleep, and sativa dominant hybrids when your energy levels are low and you need some help with your depression. Experiment with various varieties of cannabis and methods of consumption. Use what works and forget the rest.
