What Is Schizophrenia?
Let us kick this post off by explaining exactly what Schizophrenia is. Schizophrenia is a severe, lifelong mental disorder which distorts the patient’s connection to the reality of their life. On average, only 1% of the general population is known to suffer from this condition, which makes it relatively rare.
The symptoms of Schizophrenia can be divided into three categories; positive symptoms, negative symptoms, and cognitive symptoms. Positive symptoms include hallucinations, thought disorders, delusions, and movement disorders – including repetitive movements and not moving at all (catatonia). Negative symptoms include lack of pleasure in everyday life, speaking few words even whilst engaged in a conversation, lack of motivation to begin and to finish tasks, and the overall lack of emotion in general. Cognitive symptoms include trouble focusing, poor attention span, poor executive function and problems with working memory.
How Does Cannabis CBD Oil Help Schizophrenia?
Δ(9)-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) could enhance psychotic symptoms, while cannabis oil helps relieve the symptoms that are associated with Schizophrenia. CBD inhibits the breakdown of the endocannabinoid AEA, consequently boosting the ECS. AEA might even be able to postpone the onset of psychosis.
How Can I Take Cannabis CBD Oil for Schizophrenia?
Consuming CBD pills, CBD tincture, CBD drinks, or CBD-rich edibles could help control your symptoms. However, if you take CBD oil or pills, you might want to take as much as you can afford, seeing as these products are quite expensive.
