There is a huge research facility in the UK that grows cannabis, aiming to treat psychosis with cannabis oil. Many people are wary of using cannabis for mental illnesses as cannabis has caused psychosis and paranoia, anxiety and depression. But the good news is that you can definitely treat psychosis with cannabis oil – just read on to find out how.
There are plenty of useful cannabinoids in the cannabis plant and the one that makes you high, that is psychoactive, is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). This cannabinoid is a useful medicinal compound – but if used incorrectly (smoking too many joints, for example), it can affect the user negatively. Phytocannabinoids are able to cling to cannabinoid receptors in the brain, assisting the body’s endocannabinoid system to keep its balance regarding moods, pain, memory and appetite. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a good cannabinoid that calms the mind, fights anxiety and depression and can treat psychosis. Take it in a cannabis oil for immediate effect.
Pure CBD is anti-psychotic and can relieve pain and inflammation. Use CBD-enriched cannabis oil to treat psychosis and feel better almost straight away. Strains of cannabis have changed over time and people are breeding plants rich in THC or CBD so you can choose your cannabis oil according to your needs. There is definitely a link between using cannabis oil and schizophrenia – the cannabis oil decreases symptoms of schizophrenia with continued use. Studies have shown how CBD works with the brain’s cannabinoid system to decrease schizophrenia symptoms.
Scientists found that people with schizophrenia had more anandamide in their brains, a neurotransmitter that also stimulates the same receptors that are stimulated by THC. This seemed to cause hallucinations, confusion about reality and other side effects – the patients are on a continuous high from their own THC, the anandamide! When you take CBD instead, this medicinal compound stops the anandamide from being wrecked compltely so that it cans till reduce stress and psychotic effects in the brain.
CBD is a gentler form of anti-psychotic medication than THC and other drugs. It has no side effects and can be used long term. CBD is also a known pain killer, inflammation fighter, stress reliever and anti-depressive. This immediately helps alleviate the symptoms of psychosis and schizophrenia. And patients then do not have to take serious drugs which affect their bodies negatively.
