The psychiatric research journal JAMA Psychiatry has just published a new study suggesting CBD could have antipsychotic effects in individuals at clinical high risk of psychosis.
For this study, researchers wanted to try to isolate the specific chemical alterations that give CBD its therapeutic and potentially antipsychotic effects.
The investigation revealed that all three brain regions experienced modulated activation because of CBD.
While the study’s findings have implications for psychiatric medicine and treating individuals at high risk for psychosis, it has wider importance for anyone interested in the effects of cannabis on mental health.
