Dr. Shari Corbitt, founder and director of Awakenings Treatment Center, discusses the ongoing research into the dangers of Cannabis Induced Psychosis on The Broken Brain™ Podcast, with Host Dwight Hurst.
Shari Corbitt returns to the show to discuss ongoing research into the dangers of chronic long-term use of marijuana. With the legalization of recreational and medical cannabis, and the positive impact it can have, some have leaned into chronic or daily use of high concentrate THC.
In some cases, individuals with high levels of long-term overuse experience a psychotic break from reality, as well as those who’ve never had psychosis before. This alarming correlation needs further research, but is already observable in patients. Shari explains how this information is used in her work with patients with chronic pain and long-term medical needs.
