Dysthymic disorder or dysthymia is a mood-related disorder that causes many of the same symptoms as depression. Although dysthymic disorder is generally less severe than what is commonly known as clinical depression, it does tend to last longer. In some people, a single episode of dysthymic disorder can last for two years.
As with most type of depression, patients with dysthymic disorder can benefit considerably from ingesting marijuana regularly. If approved by a doctor, marijuana can help lift the spirits of people with dysthymic disorder.
