The more science studies, the more cannabis impresses

Cannabis Could Reverse Psychosis

AUSTRALIAN researchers believe cannabis, a drug believed to increase the risk of psychosis, may also be able to reverse psychotic behaviour.

Scientists at Melbourne’s Monash University say they have found a chemical compound in cannabis, cannabidiol, that reverses drug-induced behavioural disturbances in mice.

The marijuana-psychosis links have always been questionable, due to methodology and self-medication issues. Now it may be that there are also countering elements within marijuana.
Just like marijuana smoke has carcinogenic compounds, and yet marijuana itself counters with anti-cancer properties.
Every bit of evidence so far seems to show cannabis to be the most amazing plant in creation. If only we weren’t so afraid to study it.
