Description

Cannabis is the most used substance nationwide after tobacco and alcohol (NIH, 2020). Approximately 16 million Americans report regularly using cannabis (NIH, 2020). The vast majority of cannabis users begin using during their teenage years (NIH). Problems have arisen with the broad legalization of pot, including a failure to account for increased toxicity and the dangerous effects on early teens and young adults. Rapid increases in anxiety, paranoia, and psychosis-related hospitalizations from cannabis are causing alarm.

Cannabis has been shown to increase early-onset schizophrenia by 3 years. As well, the spectrum of psychotic disorders, including schizoaffective disorder, schizophreniform disorder, brief psychotic disorder, delusional disorder, and substance-induced psychotic disorder have been stark and concerning. Cannabis is found to be linked to the onset of bipolar disorder with psychotic features and increases in the onset of symptoms of mania.

Learning Objectives

  1. Understanding and discussing the trends and increase in cannabis use amongst adolescents and young adults.
  2. Understanding and discussing the difference between traditional cannabis and high concentrate THC oil.
  3. Understanding the impact of chronic cannabis use on anxiety, depressive disorders, and reduction of social and occupational functioning.
  4. Understanding the correlation of cannabis use related to early-onset psychosis and initial psychotic breaks.
  5. Understanding and discussing interventions of cannabis use disorder and how to treat it.
