Smoking One Joint Can Induce Psychiatric Symptoms

A single THC dose can induce psychotic side effects, new review finds

Some people associate smoking marijuana with waves of euphoria or pain relief. But for certain individuals, consuming cannabis can lead to a far worse experience: According to a recent research review, a single dose of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), one of the major active compounds in marijuana, can induce a host of psychiatric symptoms in people without a history of mental illness.


Understanding Opioid Use Disorder

Early initiation of marijuana (before 18 years) emerged as the dominant predictor. Decision trees revealed that early marijuana initiation especially increased the risk if individuals: (i) were between 18-34 years of age, or (ii) had incomes less than $49,000, or (iii) were of Hispanic and White heritage, or (iv) were on probation, or (v) lived in neighborhoods with easy access to drugs. Conclusions: Machine learning can accurately predict adults at risk for OUD, and identify interactions among the factors that pronounce this risk. Curbing early initiation of marijuana may be an effective prevention strategy against opioid addiction, especially in high risk groups.
