Schizophrenia: what’s an ‘acceptable risk level’ of developing a permanent neurosis while chasing a dopamine high?

Today’s ‘supercharged’ cannabis products being bought and sold today are nothing like what hippies were smoking in the 60s. And the NIH is warning about terrifying neurological side effects.

It’s not just the user these symptoms are showing up in, either. Children exposed in utero are having psychotic episodes by the time they’re ten.

So much for ‘harmless fun’.

That and simple poisoning are the consequences in store for many innocent children. The users themselves have something else to contend with — psychosis and schizophrenia.

President of the American Board of Pain Medicine and a vice president of the International Academy on the Science and Impacts of Cannabis, Dr. Ken Finn, said high potency cannabis use is being linked to poisonings in young children, as well as psychosis and schizophrenia in an increasing number of regular users.
“A lot of my colleagues that work in psychiatry and emergency medicine are seeing a sharp rise in marijuana-related psychosis,” Finn told NTD’s The Nation Speaks in an Oct. 1 interview.
…“The European data shows that there’s a fivefold increase risk of first-episode psychosis with what they described as high potency THC, which generally is about 10%. So we are really in uncharted waters here [in Colorado, with THC potencies of between 40 to 60 percent], with all these states going down this pathway.”
“The NIH came out with a paper last week showing that kids that are exposed [to cannabis] in utero tend to have psychotic-like episodes by the time they’re 10 years of age,” Finn warned.

The problem comes down to one of dosage.

The higher the concentration of the psychoactive component (i.e. THC), the greater the chance of producing negative side effects.

But regular users develop a tolerance and it takes increasingly stronger doses to trigger the dopamine response.

The THC content in various new cannabis products on the market has been rising in response to the demand for a stronger ‘high’.

Between that and so many ‘recreational’ drugs being dosed with fentanyl these days, the age-old question our parents asked us back in the day looms even larger: is the risk really worth it?
