Antipsychotic Effect Of Cannabidiol


CBD short for cannabidol is derived from the hemp plant, it is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid considered the most researched of the cannabinoid compounds. Numerous studies have identified cannabidol as an antipsychotic agent. CBD is a highly promising tool in the treatment of both psychotic disorders and substance use disorders. The FDA has approved an oral solution of pure CBD called Epidiolex, this is the first cannabis plant-derived medication that has been approved. Epidiolex, is being used to treat seizures associated with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and Dravet syndrome in patients aged 2 years and older. The potential benefit of CBD on patients that suffer with cognitive impairments proves critical importance especially since there is minimal response to current pharmacological treatments. For example, studies have indicated CBD is just as effective as the antipsychotic medication amisulpride this drug is used to treat schizophrenia, research has shown cbd has fewer risk of side effects, including less pyramidal symptoms including continuous spasms,d muscle contractions and weight gain.
