If you are experiencing symptoms of paranoia or hallucinations when you use marijuana this is not a good sign. Please consider either using a different strain with a different THC/CBD ratio. You may find that a low THC strain can help your mood and pain symptoms but without accompanying paranoia or hallucinations.
DON’T TAKE CHANCES!!!
PARANOIA AND HALLUCINATIONS ARE SERIOUS PSYCHIATRIC SYMPTOMS THAT REQUIRE TREATMENT WITH ANTIPSYCHOTIC MEDICATION IN A PSYCHIATRIC HOSPITAL!!! Sadly, even with treatment, these symptoms may persist indefinitely. This is no joke!
There is much discussion in the medical/scientific community about the risk of developing psychotic disorders in the pot-using population. Multi-site, international studies have clearly shown an increase in the occurrence of psychotic disorders in the pot-using population. The mechanisms causing this are unclear. Dopamine, dopamine metabolites, glutamate, neuronal calcium levels, and many other neurochemical suspects are being investigated. Unfortunately there is no currently available genetic test to identify those individuals at higher risk of developing Cannabis-Induced Psychosis.
