NEWS: Cannabis Directly Linked To Psychosis Relapse

Continuing to smoke cannabis after a first episode of psychosis is causally linked to an increased risk for psychosis relapse, new research shows.
The research, entitled “Association Between Continued Cannabis Use and Risk of Relapse in First-Episode PsychosisA Quasi-Experimental Investigation Within an Observational Study”, was conducted at King’s College London, United Kingdom and shows that cannabis use is a “risk-modifying factor for relapse, suggesting that discontinuation of cannabis use after the onset of psychosis may help in reducing the risk of relapse.”
