Time - Daily users of high-potency marijuana are five times more likely to suffer psychosis than those who never touch it
One in four new cases of psychotic disorders could be directly linked to the use of high-potency “skunk-like” cannabis, a new study has found.
However, the team found that milder varieties of cannabis such as hashish did not increase the risk of psychotic illness.
Psychosis refers to hallucinations or delusions that can be found in certain psychiatric conditions such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder.
