My brother is suffering from paranoid schizophrenia, with no adherence to medications. I have been doing a lot of research online, and have recently come across the many studies being done on CBD oil/cannabis (Cannabidiol) as a treatment plan for psychosis. Has anyone here tried this? I would love to know if anyone saw positive results.

I am on CBD I am taking it for anxiety and depression,it has helped the anxiety.I have had psychoses in the past but didn't try CBD for that,I don't know whether it helps more severe psychotic states,Please let us know if you use it what effects it has.I have taken CBD for about six months during this time I was found to have precancer or cancer and continued with CBD and an anti cancer diet and am now free from cancer after biopsy,I think the CBD cured me.I have heard it helps epilepsy and so far don't know of any progress with it for schizophrenia.I would be interested if you try it on how you get on.

Thanks for the reply Nikita - I also take it for anxiety and I think it has helped me a lot. Congratulations on being cancer free - that's incredible. I am trying to find CBD in dried form that can be smoked for my brother - since he is already a cannabis smoker and this wouldn't require introducing a new 'medication' to him. I will let you know how it goes.

Thanks so much!
its not legal where I live YET but its going to be.

Its important to remember everyone reacts differently to a substance, even something like a Panadol will send me to sleep.

You can buy hemp tea legally in uk, I got off Amazon and you can smoke that. Just bear in mind hemp is a lot more seedy than marijuana

I started vaping CBD a couple of weeks back. I have diabetes and it has improved the circulation in my legs. My blood glucose level is still elevated. As far as schizophrenia is concerned I don't have many symptons at the moment so its hard to say what affect its had. However, I feel less anxious. I feel relaxed and I am sleeping better. I wasn't experiencing psychosis when I started so can't say if it would help for that or not.
