If You Have Suffered From Psychosis, You Probably Shouldn't Smoke Weed

Weed And Psychosis

Now, understand, we're not saying that smoking weed CAUSES psychosis.

We're saying that if you've suffered from it, smoking weed afterwards causes problems with recovery.

The effects weren't catastrophic or anything, but the findings did support conventional wisdom that people who have ever suffered from psychosis shouldn't be hitting the bong.

Also, results seemed to be limited to social life and financial independence as well.

Here's what's being said:

"I would advise patients who've suffered from a psychosis and still use cannabis to stop using it. The message is clear that marijuana is not helping people with a history of psychosis."

The study was small, though, and none of the smokers were what they'd call heavy users.

But, that didn't stop the results which were: bottom line, don't smoke weed if you've had psychosis.
