The #CannabisAndPsychosis: Exploring the Link aims to help raise awareness about the relationship between psychosis and cannabis from the youth’s point of view. This project is supported by the Drug Strategies Community Initiatives Fund of Health Canada. The website provides unbiased tools and information to help everyone better understand the subject and make an informed decision regarding cannabis use.

About Us

The Cannabis and Psychosis: Exploring the Link was launched by the Schizophrenia Society of Canada and sponsored by the Drug Strategy Initiatives Fund of Health Canada to increase understanding and awareness about cannabis use and psychosis. What sets the site apart from the rest is that it tackles the issue from the viewpoint of young people.

We provide community partners, youth, educators and families with scientific, innovative and unbiased information to help them make knowledgeable decisions regarding cannabis use. We have a team of youth researchers who investigate the key issues today about cannabis and psychosis. We plan to work together with clinics from various areas of the country that deal with early psychosis intervention to learn more about the subject from the viewpoint of youths who have already visited these clinics.

Interactive e-Learning

Parents Module

If you are worried that there’s something wrong or a loved one has been diagnosed with psychosis, this module will give you tips and advice on how you can give them proper support. You can review the parts which you think are most applicable to your situation and read the module as many times as you want. There are additional resources that you can access, so you can find the information you need right away.

Educators Module

This module explores the symptoms of psychosis and provides resources to educators who want to learn more about the topic from the youngsters’ perspective. The first part of the Parents’ module provides a deeper youth perspective regarding the issue. Just like the Parents’ module, you can check this module as many times as you want. You are also given access to more resources, so you can find the information you need right away.

Here’s the list of our available modules.

Research

What is the Relationship Between Psychosis and Cannabis Use?

The increasing number of studies investigating the link between psychosis and cannabis use has attracted the interest of the research community, popular media and general public. Cannabis use can create momentary hallucinatory or psychotic symptoms, but it’s been suggested that there’s a link between some youths who are suffering from psychosis and using cannabis on a regular basis. Recent studies show that regular use of cannabis during adolescence is linked to a clinically substantial higher risk of developing mental disorders that feature psychosis.

Some of these studies may be leading the average reader to believe that a direct casual relationship between psychosis and marijuana exists such as that the regular person who uses cannabis may become psychotic. Although there are some studies suggesting this causal link, various forms of information and scientific literature suggest that the nature of the relationship between cannabis and psychosis is more complex than this. The Cannabis and Psychosis: Exploring the Link aims to explore this topic and help people better understand this link. Youth researchers explore the most important issues and present unbiased information to all interested individuals.

We will #legalize, #regulate, and #restrict access to marijuana.

Canada’s current system of marijuana prohibition does not work. It does not prevent young people from using marijuana and too many Canadians end up with criminal records for possessing small amounts of the drug. https://buyweedonline.blog/2017/04/27/the-truth-about-marijuana-legalization-in-canada/

Arresting and prosecuting these offenses is expensive for our criminal justice system. It traps too many Canadians in the criminal justice system for minor, non-violent offenses. At the same time, the proceeds from the illegal drug trade support organized crime and greater threats to public safety, like human trafficking and hard drugs.

To ensure that we keep marijuana out of the hands of children, and the profits out of the hands of criminals, we will legalize, regulate, and restrict access to marijuana.

We will remove marijuana consumption and incidental possession from the Criminal Code, and create new, stronger laws to punish more severely those who provide it to minors, those who operate a motor vehicle while under its influence, and those who sell it outside of the new regulatory framework.

We will create a federal/provincial/territorial task force, and with input from experts in public health, substance abuse, and law enforcement, will design a new system of strict marijuana sales and distribution, with appropriate federal and provincial excise taxes applied.
