Calming effects of cannabis can help psychotics

Calming effects of cannabis can help psychotics

The Province

Letter To The Editor

A recent Province editorial brought to mind my experience as a young counselling intern working in the mental-health-services field.

I had observed that my clients were tobacco consumers at a rate several times that of the general public.

I wondered if it was possible that something in tobacco actually caused schizophrenia? Turns out the phenomena had already been well studied.

Results showed that nicotine wasn't causing mental illness. Instead, clients who were already mentally ill were using nicotine to self-medicate their symptoms.

The same is true for cannabis. One limited New Zealand study documents a slightly higher rate of psychosis in daily users of cannabis when compared to non-users.

The calming effects of cannabis are well known. So, is it surprising that persons suffering a psychosis would be more likely to use this natural herb to reduce their own symptoms of anxiety and disorientation?

The only thing the New Zealand study demonstrates is the danger of using raw data to justify pre-conceived biases.

Wow so all this talk about cannabis leading to more psychotics might be BS. Good to know. Hope they do some follow-up studies.
