Does this sound like an experience you’ve had?
While depressive feelings and clinical depression are different, their symptoms can overlap. Depressive feelings can include sadness, extreme lethargy, disinterest, or feeling excessively tired.
It’s important to note that there are a host of factors that may contribute to depressive feelings, including environmental, genetic, and epigenetic influences.
Feeling down from time to time is a normal part of life. But when depressive feelings begin to make life unmanageable, it’s time to talk to a professional.
Cannabis is personal.
Learn how Justin’s endocompatibility helped him choose a cannabinoid formulation that worked for his unique genotype and health goals.
A few years ago, Justin got divorced from his first wife. He spent a tremendous amount of money on an attorney and moved into a small apartment. After he settled in, Justin started weekend visitations with his five year old daughter.
Justin had trouble adjusting to his new life. He started calling out from work and told his friends he didn’t like his apartment because it was too quiet. Justin felt sad and alone.
When he didn’t feel like himself after two months, Justin decided to try cannabis to lift his spirits. He enjoyed smoking marijuana when he was younger, and he wanted to feel better about how things turned out with his ex-wife.
Justin told the local budtender he wanted a product that would make him feel happy and giggly, like he felt when he smoked in high school. The budtender assured him he knew the perfect product and recommended a Sativa strain.
“I went through a similar situation,” the budtender said. “I lost nearly everything in my divorce. This strain made me feel like myself in no time.”
Justin gave the budtender an extra tip and went home happy. He was relieved he found something to help him feel like himself again. He turned on a movie, put a bag of popcorn into the microwave, and smoked the cannabis in his backyard.
After smoking what the budtender recommended, Justin didn’t feel better. In fact, he felt worse. The next morning, Justin had trouble getting out of bed. Small things like showering and putting on a pot of coffee felt hard.
Determined to feel better, Justin tried more cannabis. He thought his experience the night before was a fluke. When Justin started to feel hopeless later that night, he called his friend Bobby and told him he was depressed.
While they were on the phone, Bobby told Justin to visit Endo·dna’s website. Justin hopped on his computer and was intrigued by what he found.
Justin had no idea that genetics had so much to do with his cannabis experience. He realized his genetics were responsible for his adverse event with the budtender’s favorite strain.
Justin ordered an Endo·dna DNA kit to his house. It arrived within a few weeks and he quickly performed the DNA swab in his living room. He mailed the kit to the lab and waited for his results.
When Justin received his Endo·Decoded Report, he was surprised to see that he was genetically predisposed to depressive feelings. His Endo·Aligned suggested formulations included cannabinoid ratios and terpene profiles to match his genetics. His suggested formulations were much different than the strain the budtender sold him.
After Justin discovered his endocompatibility and Endo·Aligned formulations, he no longer felt depressive feelings as an effect from cannabis.
Justin is feeling optimistic about his future and looks forward to building a new life and visiting his daughter every weekend.
