What is Schizophrenia?
Schizophrenia is a severe, lifelong mental disorder that disrupts a patient’s connection to the reality of his/her life. This condition is relatively rare, with only around 1% of the general population affected. It generally emerges in early adulthood and continues throughout the person’s life, with changing degrees of intensity.
Schizophrenia symptoms can start off in the initial phases as hallucinations, delusions, thought disorders, movement disorders(including not moving at all / catatonia and repetitive movements). These symptoms happen inwardly and are not often obvious to the naked eye or to those who are the observers. Outward symptoms include speaking few words even when engaged in conversation, lack of pleasure in everyday life, changes in self-care and school or work performance, lack of motivation to begin and finish tasks, and lack of emotion in general. Cognitive symptoms include poor attention span, trouble focusing, problems with working memory and poor executive function. When people close to the patient see these symptoms, they know something is wrong.
How Does Cannabis CBD Oil Help Schizophrenia?
Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) may enhance psychotic symptoms, while cannabidiol (CBD) helps relieve symptoms. CBD inhibits the breakdown of the endocannabinoid AEA, thus boosting the endocannabinoid system (ECS) which is responsible for managing the balance within the body’s immune processes. AEA may even postpone the onset of psychosis.
How Can I Take Cannabis CBD Oil For Schizophrenia?
Taking CBD tincture, CBD pills, CBD drinks, or CBD-rich edibles orally may help control your symptoms. If you take CBD oil or pills, you may want to take as much as you can afford as these products are expensive.
