BACKGROUND Whether cannabis can cause psychotic or affective symptoms that persist beyond transient intoxication is unclear. We systematically reviewed the evidence pertaining to cannabis use and occurrence of psychotic or affective mental health outcomes. METHODS We searched Medline, Embase, CINAHL, PsycINFO, ISI Web of Knowledge, ISI Proceedings, ZETOC, BIOSIS, LILACS, and MEDCARIB from their inception to September, 2006, searched reference lists of studies selected for inclusion, and… Expand
Effects of cannabis use on outcomes of psychotic disorders: systematic review
TLDR
Confidence that most associations reported were specifically due to cannabis is low, and it remains important to establish whether cannabis is harmful, what outcomes are particularly susceptible, and how such effects are mediated. Expand
Cannabis use and mania symptoms: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
It is suggested that cannabis use may worsen the occurrence of manic symptoms in those diagnosed with bipolar disorder, and may also act as a causal risk factor in the incidence of manic Symptoms. Expand
Does giving up substance use work for patients with psychosis? A systematic meta-analysis
TLDR
It is suggested that substance use contributes to both the symptoms and the burden of disability experienced by patients with psychosis. Expand
An overview of systematic reviews on cannabis and psychosis: discussing apparently conflicting results.
TLDR
It is concluded that there is insufficient knowledge to determine the level of risk associated with cannabis use in relation to psychotic symptoms and that more information is needed on both the risks of cannabis use and the benefits of preventive interventions to support evidence-based approaches. Expand
Cannabis Use and the Risk for Psychosis and Affective Disorders
TLDR
The evidence that heavy use of high-THC/low-CBD types of cannabis increases the risk of psychosis is sufficiently strong to merit public health education and the possibility that CBD may be therapeutically useful. Expand
Meta-analysis of the Association Between the Level of Cannabis Use and Risk of Psychosis.
TLDR
Current evidence shows that high levels of cannabis use increase the risk of psychotic outcomes and confirms a dose-response relationship between the level of use and the risk for psychosis, and sufficient evidence to justify harm reduction prevention programs. Expand
[Cannabis and mood].
TLDR
The relationship between cannabis use and mood changes are observed both in the epidemiological research and in the clinical settings. Expand
Brief interventions for cannabis use in emerging adults: A systematic review, meta-analysis, and evidence map.
TLDR
It is indicated that BIs targeting non-treatment seeking emerging adults result in significant reductions in symptoms of cannabis use disorder and an increased likelihood of cannabis abstinence, however evidence is of low quality. Expand
Cannabis and Psychosis: A Review of the Risk Factors Involved
TLDR
A significant inverse relationship exists between cannabidiol (CBD) and psychosis: cannabodiol is associated with less psychotic symptoms and manifests antipsychotic properties. Expand
Cannabis use and psychosis: a review of reviews
TLDR
A systematic review of meta-analyses and systematic reviews to evaluate the impact of cannabis use on the onset and course of psychoses found that cannabis use is associated with a dose-dependent risk of developing psychotic illness, and cannabis users have an earlier onset of psychotic illness compared to non-users.

Cannabis as a risk factor for psychosis: systematic review
TLDR
The available evidence supports the hypothesis that cannabis is an independent risk factor for psychosis and the development of psychotic symptoms, particularly in vulnerable populations, and is likely to have beneficial effects on psychiatric morbidity. Expand
Cannabis use and psychosis: a longitudinal population-based study.
TLDR
Results confirm previous suggestions that cannabis use increases the risk of both the incidence of psychosis in psychosis-free persons and a poor prognosis for those with an established vulnerability to psychotic disorder. 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
Causal association between cannabis and psychosis: examination of the evidence
TLDR
Cases of psychotic disorder could be prevented by discouraging cannabis use among vulnerable youths and research is needed to understand the mechanisms by which cannabis causes psychosis. Expand
Cannabis abuse as a risk factor for depressive symptoms.
  • G. Bovasso
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • The American journal of psychiatry
  • 2001
TLDR
In participants with no baseline depressive symptoms, those with a diagnosis of cannabis abuse at baseline were four times more likely than those with no cannabis abuse diagnosis to have depressive symptoms at the follow-up assessment, after adjusting for age, gender, antisocial symptoms, and other baseline covariates. Expand
Cannabis use in adolescence and risk for adult psychosis: longitudinal prospective study
TLDR
This is the first prospective longitudinal study of adolescent cannabis use as a risk factor for adult schizophreniform disorder, taking into account childhood psychotic symptoms, and the Dunedin multidisciplinary health and development study has a 96% follow up rate at age 26. Expand
Cannabis dependence and psychotic symptoms in young people
TLDR
The results show that the development of cannabis dependence is associated with increased rates of psychotic symptoms in young people even when pre-existing symptoms and other background factors are taken into account. Expand
Psychological and social sequelae of cannabis and other illicit drug use by young people: a systematic review of longitudinal, general population studies
TLDR
Available evidence does not strongly support an important causal relation between cannabis use by young people and psychosocial harm, but cannot exclude the possibility that such a relation exists, and the lack of evidence of robust causal relations prevents the attribution of public health detriments to illicit drug use. 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
Exploring the association between cannabis use and depression.
TLDR
Heavy cannabis use and depression are associated and evidence from longitudinal studies suggests that heavy cannabis use may increase depressive symptoms among some users, but it is still too early, however, to rule out the hypothesis that the association is due to common social, family and contextual factors that increase risks of both heavy cannabis Use and depression.
