According to a previous study, weed usage, especially excessive use, is linked to an elevated incidence of schizophrenia. While this current research cannot show consequences many specialists feel that chronic marijuana usage, in combination with various danger variables, may contribute to induce schizophrenia in some people.
Cannabis Use Linked To Increase In Schizophrenia Cases?
According to recent Danish research, schizophrenia diagnoses connected to weed usage have increased dramatically during the mid-1990s.
The use of Cannabis is quite common in the modern-day generation which is a serious concern as per experts. Its link with cases of schizophrenia has made them worry about the medical condition of such users and hence they have asked the government authorities to have stern actions in this direction. To curb this menace is necessary at this point as it may trouble the youth health and the effects of the same will be there on the whole nation said an expert with a worried tone.
As per the scientists, cannabis utilization dysfunction is characterized by users developing a sensitivity to the medication, utilizing it in bigger quantities or for lengthier periods than designed, being incapable to reduce their utilization, and spending a significant portion of their day acquiring, utilizing, or recovery from impacts of marijuana. Individuals also may skip out on crucial tasks and duties in favor of marijuana usage especially if this has severe implications.
Scientists discovered that the proportion of schizophrenia diagnosis in many areas is connected with “cannabis use disorder” increased from 2 percent in 1995 to roughly 4 percent in 2000, but have risen to 8 percent since 2010 which is again an alarming level.
Carsten Hjorthj, a lead researcher of this campaign and assistant dean at the Research Center for Mental Health told, “I think it is highly important to use both our study and other studies to highlight and emphasize that cannabis use is not harmless”. Individuals with schizophrenia experience delusions, poor thinking, and visions, which can be long-lasting, serious and very devastating leading to initial and later stages of schizophrenia.
