Psychosis on its own is not a disorder but in-fact it is a symptom that can be caused by:
-Major depressive disorder
-Substance abuse/Substance withdrawl
A person displaying psychosis is defined as an individual that has sensory experiences of things that do not exist and/or carries beliefs that have no basis in reality. Some other symptoms can be disorganization, scattered thoughts and speech, catatonia and difficulty concentrating.
There is currently a major need for an alternative way to treat psychosis because current available prescription anti-psychotics all have severe negative side effects. This results in many people experiencing psychosis to be less inclined to medicate. Some side effects from anti-psychotics include:
-Hormonal imbalance causing decreased libido
Many recent studies have shown that CBD is a promising alternative for treating psychosis. A study was done with over 500 psychosis patients where some were treated with CBD and others with placebo. After the 8-week trial had completed, the researchers found significant changes in the CBD group when compared to the placebo group. Psychotic symptoms had significantly decreased from baseline by the end of the study. Most notably, patients from the CBD group were rated as “improved” by their treating physicians significantly more often than those from the placebo group. Another study was done on several psychosis patients where half were dosed with CBD, half with placebo and then they preformed cognitive tasks under a brain scan. The CBD group showed that brain activity had been successfully regulated in 3 different sections of the brain; the striatum, the medial temporal cortex and the midbrain. While there is still lots of research to be done surrounding CBD for the treatment of psychosis is has been proven that it is helping and CBD as a method of treatment for psychosis is already being recommended by physicians.
