There is new research coming out in the next couple of weeks which will demonstrate that it does help some people with ADD and bi-polar problems. There are many medical marijuana users at this time who report using it for those problems. There is no evidence yet that it helps with OCD disorders.

I have bi polar. When i smoke weed i am very relaxed and very mellow. I never get into fights or go crazy or nothing. I stopped smoking for 5 months. I became much more angry , i spent money like crazy, and i had trouble sleeping. Those are not marijana withdrawl symptoms those are bi polar symptoms but they became worse.

My opinion, marijuanna will help with bi polar, when i stopped i was horrible like i used to be. With marijuanna i sleep alot more, and am more focused. I say yes because i am proof lol. As far as add, i am not sure.

Additional notation not by original author... You must be careful to get the dosage right. Too much and you will have an episode too little and the same thing. Just like other psych medication. The problem is that all marijuana is different and different doses may be needed to get the same effect. The same is true, that all people are different and will need different size doses. Thankfully research is occurring at the current time into isolating THC and making it in liquid form so as to get proper medical dosing and improve the stigma behind medical marijuana.

Not likely, considering it already causes them, i.e. you can get mental disorders from marijuana.
