Hey guys
I was just wondering if anyone knew any good strains for people suffering with schizophrenia. I’ve heard both arguments (good and bad) when it comes to weed and schizophrenia, but I wanted to get y’alls advice. Maybe a high CBD low THC strain? Or should I just look into buying the CBD oil itself.
Sorry if this is a dumb question. I’m just tired of feeling like a medicated zombie all the time and thought I’d try something new.
Thanks in advanced. Have a rad day
I have a lot of experience with Medical Cannabis and the word is High THC strains of weed are a big no no. CBD might be promising for Schizophrenia but not all CBD Strains will have the same mental effect. Yes CBD has a strong mental effect depending on strain. Most CBD strains will make you nervous in high doses but some are the opposite.

Ok you guys are not talking apples to apples. Been in medical cannabis for 8 plus years. First off commercial cbd is not derived from a thc performing plant. Its from the hemp plant with with thc levels usually under 1%. Commercial cbd really only benefit from natural anti-inflammatory and a little relaxation which in turn can help with anxiety. A commercial cbd oil will not produce psychosis properties and will have no real effect on a schizophrenia patient. Now a THC plant producing cbd will bring a psychosis effect with the benefits of cbd and can change a chemical imbalance in the brain until the thc wears off. Now remember schizophrenia is a brain condition and self medicating it can be dangerous for the person and people around. Everyone is different as 1 may be relaxed and another goes into psychotic episode. You just don't know with schizophrenia. Dont play God. Now this thc level where lower is better is pretty funny. We can beat this bush all day long on that subject. Reason why. The old saying. The more you smoke the more you can toke. So a new smoker doing 12% will get stoned where a long term smoker would smack the dealer in the head and say whats this bullshit. Your body will get a tolerance the more you smoke. Just like alcohol when a friend can pound a 6 pack in a cup hours and be totally functional but a new drinker will be drunk at 3 beers. Its all tolerance. If I wanted to make someone relax and help with pain I would do an all indica strain with cbd and for new smokers 12% thc and experienced 18 plus thc. Especially for schizophrenia I wouldn't give a sativa strain with cbd. Might make em wired.

Even commercial CBD Strains of Cannabis vary a lot. These "Hemp" strains probably have different chemotypes and the High CBD and .3 THC or less. But there are many things in Cannabis that work in conjuction with CBD or THC. When someone takes a commercial CBD they never know the strian it's derived from so the exact effect may vary if you switch brands of CBD as each strain has it's own chemotype and therefore it's own specialized usage.

Of course it's been three years but it's great that you have experience with medical cannabis and are aware of the differences between high THC strains and CBD strains when it comes to schizophrenia.

It's important to note that not all CBD strains have the same mental effects. Each strain can have a unique impact on individuals, and it's crucial to find the right one that works for you.
You mentioned that most CBD strains can make you nervous in high doses, but some have the opposite effect. It highlights the importance of finding the strain that suits your specific needs and preferences. It's always a good idea to consult with a healthcare professional to ensure you're making informed choices.
By the way, what are intrusive thoughts...they are unwanted and often distressing thoughts or images that pop into our minds involuntarily. They can be repetitive, negative, or even violent in nature. If you're experiencing intrusive thoughts, it's essential to reach out to a mental health professional who can provide guidance and support.

The relationship between CBD and schizophrenia is an ongoing topic of research. While some studies show potential benefits, it's crucial to approach it cautiously.

If you or someone you know is dealing with schizophrenia or any mental health concerns, it's important to consult a healthcare professional before considering any treatments. They can provide personalized advice based on individual needs. Also, if you're feeling overwhelmed or need support, don't hesitate to contact mental health hotlines in your area.

If you're looking for strains, you could try high CBD, low THC ones. These strains have less of a "high" feeling but still contain the potential benefits of CBD. Another option to consider is CBD oil, which comes in different forms and can be taken orally or applied topically. There are even special CBD treats for dogs https://joyorganics.com/products/cbd-dog-treats/. Have you heard about that?

I would not consider taking CBD under that condition, very risky because it's known that overall THC could potentiate the effects as many psychotropics. Many people think that CBD is the solution for all the problems but it is not. It has good uses, but limited, and less within research range.
