Medical Marijuana For Schizophrenia

When someone has schizophrenia, it can be difficult for them to differentiate reality vs. hallucinations. Schizophrenia is a chronic brain disorder that affects the way someone acts, thinks, expresses themselves, and perceives reality. It can often lead to issues with school, work and relationships and unfortunately, it’s a lifelong disease. But, there are ways to help treat this disorder and be able to live more comfortably and confidently.

What Causes Schizophrenia?

The cause still remains unknown, but researchers know it starts in the brain. Changes occur in dopamine levels, serotonin levels and the neurotransmitters, but there are several other regions that may be affected too. Unfortunately, there is still no cure and the disorder will require lifelong treatment. Approximately, one percent of the Canadian population is diagnosed with schizophrenia and it most commonly appears between the ages of 20 to 30.

Early Schizophrenia Symptoms

Symptoms can begin in the teenage years, although it may be harder to diagnose because the symptoms can be quite similar to other conditions, but they can include things like:

  • A poor change in grades
  • Difficulty paying attention/concentrating
  • Lack of motivation
  • Anxiety
  • Distancing themselves from friends and family
  • Mood swings – irritability, anger outbursts, depression, etc.
  • Change in speech – sentences don’t make sense
  • Suicidal thoughts
