CBD oil for psychosis?

Hey guys so I think I got ill from smoking LOTS of marijuana back in my 20s. I used to love the heavy THC brain high.

Fast forward, I ended up having an episode of psychosis. Mostly bad auditory hallucinations.

My psychiatrist has me down as schizophrenic. I also suffer from GAD. I suffered from anxiety a good 10 years before my psychotic episode. I have read many good things about CBD oils for psychosis and especially my anxiety disorder but when I asked my psychiatrist about a year ago , she said it might not be for me.

What do you guys think? Maybe one super low on THC or no THC at all?!

Thank you in advance.

Hi Etiene,

This forum is for parents and caregivers. I suggest that you instead post to the Diagnosed forum over here:

Marijuana / cannabis is a known factor in increasing risk of psychosis / schizophrenia - here is a recent summary of the research:

You want to avoid all THC products - its bad news, from what I’ve read.

CBD oil without THC might be helpful - I think the research is continuing
