Is there a common vulnerability in cannabis phenomenology and schizotypy? The role of the N170 ERP

Sub-chronic impact of cannabinoids in street cannabis on cognition, psychotic-like symptoms and psychological well-being
TLDR
CBD attenuates the psychotic-like effects of cannabis over time in recreational users, and raises concerns for the harms stemming from use of varieties such as ‘skunk’ (sensimillia), which lack any CBD but currently dominate the supply of cannabis. Expand
Patterns of cannabis use, psychotic-like experiences and personality styles in young cannabis users
TLDR
The cumulative levels of lifetime cannabis exposure, trait schizotypy and hopelessness were associated with PLEs in young cannabis users and Trait hopelessness was found to have a moderating effect on the relationship between the recency of cannabis use and the frequency of PLES. Expand

ABSTRACT Heavy cannabis use is associated with an increased risk of psychosis. However, the psychological mechanisms involved, and interactions with established risk factors for cannabis-relatedExpand
Do AKT1, COMT and FAAH influence reports of acute cannabis intoxication experiences in patients with first episode psychosis, controls and young adult cannabis users?

Effects of cannabis and psychosis vulnerability in daily life: an experience sampling test study
TLDR
Cannabis use interacts with psychosis vulnerability in their effects on experience of psychosis in daily life and there is no evidence that use of cannabis is increased following occurrence of psychotic experiences as would be expected by the self-medication model. Expand
Cannabis-Induced Psychosis-Like Experiences Are Associated with High Schizotypy
TLDR
High scoring schizotypes who use cannabis are more likely to experience psychosis-like phenomena at the time of use, and unpleasant after-effects associated with cannabis use, consistent with the hypothesis that cannabis use is a risk factor for full psychosis. Expand
Schizotypy and psychosis-like experiences from recreational cannabis in a non-clinical sample
TLDR
It is suggested that cannabis use may reveal an underlying vulnerability to psychosis in those with high schizotypal traits, as well as high-scoring schizotypes who used cannabis experienced more psychosis-like symptoms during and after use. Expand
Cannabis use and psychiatric and cogitive disorders: the chicken or the egg?
TLDR
Combined cognitive-behavioural therapy and motivational interviewing seems a promising psychological intervention to achieve a cessation of cannabis use in patients suffering from schizophrenia. Expand
Prospective cohort study of cannabis use, predisposition for psychosis, and psychotic symptoms in young people
TLDR
Cannabis use moderately increases the risk of psychotic symptoms in young people but has a much stronger effect in those with evidence of predisposition for psychosis. Expand
Cannabis use is associated with schizotypy and attentional disinhibition
TLDR
It is suggested that cannabis use can mimic attentional deficits seen in acute schizophrenia and is associated with schizotypal personality, thus setting the stage for a possible cannabinoid model of SZ. Expand

The Psychotomimetic States Inventory (PSI): Measuring psychotic-type experiences from ketamine and cannabis
TLDR
The Psychotomimetic States Inventory is a potentially useful measure of the nature and extent of the phenomenological effects of psychotropic drugs in schizophrenia-related research. Expand
Tests of causal linkages between cannabis use and psychotic symptoms.
TLDR
The present study suggests that the association between cannabis use and psychotic symptoms is unlikely to be due to confounding factors; and the direction of causality is from cannabis use to psychotic symptoms. Expand
