A link between Left-Handedness and Depression

I had an ah-ha moment the other day when I was discussing with someone about their depression and how they never feel they are good enough. This person has tried many different medications and treatment for their condition with no help whatsoever. Even being off medications was slightly better than being on them but they will always suffer from their mental illness. My ah-ha moment however is when I thought “I wonder if it is because they are left-handed”. I, myself, is left-handed and I know the struggle of trying to get your brain to work harder when you live in a primarily dominate right-handed world. Not only am I or this person I know left handed, we are also ambidextrous, which means we can use both sides either equally or one side is dominated for certain things; that makes things way harder for us when it comes getting our brain to work properly.

According to a Danish Study, 28% of people pass away from a stroke within the first 28 days of suffering from it; no one thought Luke would pass and so suddenly.

I have expressed in previous posts just how important legalizing Hemp/CBD in the state of Idaho and how legalizing (at least medicinal) marijuana in Idaho would be a great benefit. We have seen in studies that CBD (even THC in small forms) can reduce tumors, help with seizures, bring down symptoms of Parkinson’s, ADHD, ALS, Bipolar, and so many more issues out there. It is now a world wide debate on if (and when) should Marijuana be legal in the US; especially when people are sick of Big Pharma and are tired of the side effects it can cause.
