Schizophrenia is a mental illness – or psychotic disorder – when a person experiences severe misrepresentation about daily life which forces them to get an incorrect idea about their living context. They often hear voices and see things and are very paranoid about certain people or issues. They can get very depressed and battle to stick to hobbies or work or social groups. They lack motivation and concentration. When they take conventional medicines, they often experience terrible side-effects. People with Schizophrenia need help – not only from drugs, but also from loved ones who need to be patient and to draw them into their lives gently.
How Can Cannabis Oil Benefit Schizophrenia?
Schizophrenia sufferers reported feeling less psychotic and calmer when they took cannabis oil (CBD). While the disease does not simply disappear, its effects are reduced. The consumption of CBD helps with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) as it contributes to that system where the body is trying to constantly maintain a healthy balance as it produces its own cannabis-like chemicals. It does this to balance emotions, moods, sleep patterns and keep the immune system strong. Some research has shown that when some patients took CBD, it assisted them to remember things and they were able to function normally in a social context. Scientists say that Schizophrenia has links to a chemical disparity in the brain related to neurotransmitters.
CBD is therefore an attractive option for those with Schizophrenia as it is a non-invasive way to control this mental illness and has no side effects. CBD is the perfect cannabinoid for people with mental issues as it is anti-psychotic and can calm the mind down. A CBD enriched cannabis oil will relieve psychosis as it interacts with receptors in the brain which manage moods, emotions and the ongoing healthy balance of the immune system. When CBD is taken daily in large doses it allows Schizophrenic patients to come out of their shells again and be social. CBD can improve memory and help mental illness patients to recognise objects and people. CBD can also relieve the hallucinations experienced by Schizophrenia sufferers. The body’s endocannabinoid system regulates the immune system and psychotic behaviour arises if there is too much change.
