Brain scans show how cannabis extract may help people with psychosis - Cannabis News

Cannabidiol reduces the brain activity linked to hallucinations, delusions and other forms of psychosis, research has found.

Brain scans have revealed for the first time how a substance found in cannabis plants may help people with psychotic disorders by dampening down abnormal brain activity that arises in the patients.

A single dose of cannabidiol, an non-intoxicating extract of the plant, reduced unusual patterns of neural behaviour linked to hallucinations, delusions, and other symptoms of psychosis, researchers found.
