Its true that marijuana triggers psychotic activities in some people who have a gene marker for it and based on the potency level – it can boost chances of getting schizophrenia to upto 60%. THC causes psychedelic experiences but CBD is known to have high levels of curing mental disorders such as schizophrenia. So when taking marijuana without knowing to petency level of THC, know that you’re risking big time. However, recovery from schizophrenia is definitely possible. I like the mental health recovery works of Will Jiang, who suffered from it and wrote an ardent autobiography called, “A Schizophrenic Will: A Story of Madness, A Story of Hope” which is quite inspriational, just as his book, “Guide to Natural Mental Health: Anxiety, Bipolar, Depression, Schizophrenia, and Digital Addiction: Nutrition and Complementary Therapies”. Find some time to read more about how he recovered fully from schizophrenia http://www.mentalhealthbooks.net. And, as it turns out, he earns a living as a designer and refused to allow his condition take away everything he loved to do. I believe this is his web design firm. http://www.newyorkwebdesign.nyc It is hard to believe this man suffers from schizophrenia. Schizophrenia is recoverable and patients can move on to live normal lives. On the other hand, drugs such as weed and alcohol makes things difficult and can lengthen the condition to last for good.
