CBD or Cannabidiol is the non intoxicating compound from marijuana which still remains under attention as new study suggests its benefits for psychosis. CBD is said to have positive effects for psychosis treatment as its single dose can reset the brain activity and reduce symptoms of the disorder.
CBD has been studied to explain through evidence how it works to coubteract psychosis. This may also help in the generation of treatment of other brain disorders.
What is Psychosis?
Psychosis cannot be characterized as a condition affecting single aspects of the brain as it is a symptom resulting from other disorders. It shows detachment from reality which makes a person believe in what is not real. Psychotic episodes can also make the person believe in hallucinations ans the causes are still not studied well.
Psychosis can be triggered by other mental disorders such as trauma, abuse, stress, and even lack of sleep. It takes any of the health disoders to spark an episode of psychosis. Psychosis is unbelievably common in the United States as around 100,000 people are affected with it every year.
Schizophrenia is the term often associated with psychosis and can bring the onset of a psychosis episode if the cause is triggered.
Study About Psychosis to Reveal CBD Effects
A study was carried out to see if CBD has an effect on psychosis treatment. Patients with psychotic symptoms were examined in comparison with a control group. A 600 mg dose of cbd was given to the patients and made to perform brain tasks involving the three parts of brain affected by psychosis. The brains of psychotic patients and control group were then examined through an MRI.
The brains of psychotic patients were seen to have an abnormal activity in their brains whereas cbd dose showed improvements in the brain activity in those who took it. The placebo was not as effective as cbd dose.
CBD was therefore seen to reset the brain activity to reduce abnormal functioning. The results have unravelled the unique properties of the CBD drug that works unlike any other anti psychotics.
The study also stated that it cannot be assured if CBD will have the same effects in long term and if it will not cause the same rapid changes in the brain like other psychoactive drugs do.
Psychosis is a condition that needs to be treated urgently and CBD allows that with its advantages by being tolerable by the body. It does not cause muscle tremors or sedation effects like other medicines that were used for the treatment.
CBD is also well known for the treatment if epilepsy which brought the medicinal form epidiolex for it. Also, it is studied that CBD can counterbalance the unwanted effects of THC. If CBD is so effective in taking control of THC, (psychoactive compound of cannabis plant) it can take control of psychosis effectively.
Moreover, CBD has now become a cash crop as farmer begin to grow cannabis instead of other crops they used to before. Farmers from the United States are shifting their focus on earning through this cash crop after the farm bill was signed by their president, Donald Trump.
Farming CBD has become the new trend now as the drug has gained lots of attention over the past few years. Let it be anything from psychosis, epilepsy, pain relief, inflammation, or anxiety, CBD is the cure for all.
CBD is being infused in products such as shampoos, beauty creams, and food treats to let customers reap and enjoy all benefits of the drug. Standijlng ahead of al other drugs, CBD is now taking lead in every industry successfully.
