Recent research suggests that smoking high-potency marijuana every day could increase the chances of developing psychosis by nearly five times compared to people who have never used marijuana.
he proportion of schizophrenia cases linked with problematic use of marijuana has increased over the past 25 years, according to a new study from Denmark.
In 1995, 2% of schizophrenia diagnoses in the country were associated with cannabis use disorder. In 2000, it increased to around 4%. Since 2010, that figure increased to 8%, the study found.
According to another study conducted in the Netherlands, pot-smoking subjects with schizophrenia are more sensitive than healthy individuals to both the positive and negative effects of the drug. Although smoking weed made the subjects with schizophrenia feel better temporarily, it markedly worsened their psychotic symptomology.
