STUDY: CBD may have an Antipsychotic Effect and Normalize Brain Function


We know CBD has a calming effect on the brain but science is now beginning to understand the complexities of why this occurs. New psychiatric research has shed light on the calming effects of CBD on psychosis and how exactly this cognitive calm is produced (1).


"The results have started unravelling the brain mechanisms of a new drug that works in a completely different way to traditional anti-psychotics,"

said the study’s lead author Dr. Sagnik Bhattacharyya from the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience at King’s College, London (2).


The randomized clinical trial was titled: Effect of Cannabidiol on Medial Temporal, Midbrain, and Striatal Dysfunction in People at Clinical High Risk of Psychosis. Published by the research journal JAMA Psychiatry, it focused on the underlying causes and neurocognitive mechanisms of CBD’s influence on psychosis.


According to the National Institute of Mental Health, psychosis refers to conditions that affect the mind, where there has been some loss of contact with reality (3).


The study confirmed CBD’s beneficial influence on all three brain regions associated with psychosis and that it normalized dysfunction in these regions. The results suggest CBD may have an antipsychotic effect in high-risk individuals.


"One of the main advantages of cannabidiol is that it is safe and seems to be very well tolerated, making it in some ways an ideal treatment.”

-Dr. Sagnik Bhattacharyya (2)


While this study focused specifically on psychosis, it’s another significant step toward understanding CBD’s therapeutic abilities for mental health as a whole.
