Can Cannabis Help Mental Illness? – De-Natured

In this De-Natured segment of Nature League, Brit breaks down a recent scientific journal article about the effect of cannabidiol on brain regions associated with …


  1. I think it amplifies the sickness in the pothead's brain. Unnecessary drug. It's been legalized but it's only a good excuse to get high. That's what cannabis really is. The whole world needs to go to rehab now. The producers of medical Marijuana are making a killing on sales. And it's to our expense. We the people are the ones who get our lungs and brains polluted with this trash crop. If it stops other people's seizures like they claim it to be, it is still not good. The seizure stopped because the guy is high as a kite now. It's not good being high. It fries your brain. Hey, I don't smoke shit like cigarettes and pot. So I am not pro pot. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  3. Question: how is "Clinical High Risk" determined?

    Happy to have a brief answer here, or a pointer to where I could learn more (I googled and found some papers that talked about it, but they were talking about it from a perspective of existing familiarity with the concept)… or… a pointer to a SciShow Psych episode (either already extant or newly created) would delight me greatly. ๐Ÿ™‚ (You (and other SciShow folks) do a wonderful job of explaining things.)

  4. Okay, I have ADHD extremely bad, so I'm not really sure what I just watched or what I just heard. But, could someone please tell me what this video said in a nutshell?!!? Can THC actually cause psychosis, schizophrenia, and things like that?!!? I have bipolar disorder, ADHD, PTSD, severe anxiety, etc., so could I get schizophrenia or something like that because I already have mental problems?!!? Please and thank you!!! ๐Ÿ˜Š

  5. geez, i hate it when the "financial gains" get emphasized. i'm from canada and we're going full legal on marijuana oct 17 and already i can see how "financial gains" is going to lower the quality of the pot i smoke. to sum it up: i want plants grown outside without manufactured fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, etc ad nauseum. guess i'll go back to growing mediocre medicine in my backyard.

  6. Scholarly journal article titles are always the best/worst ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ

    This is a great show and I love all the topics you guys choose! Thanks for the education ๐Ÿ˜Š

  7. thank you for breaking down this study! very interesting. also really loved how you pointed out what was good from the study and what can be improved.

  8. oh my god, sorry it took me a second to get here. here are my reactions.

    love when you talk about journals.
    ooooh i didnt know the double blinding.
    thank you for explaining the types of research!

  9. I have been using cannabis to combat my anxiety and panic disorder for over three years now. I generally take one breath off a vape pen every morning, and use strains with a mix of thc and cbd. This is enough to keep my brain from spinning from one worry to another to another and spiraling through invasive thoughts (thanks to SciShow Psych now I know thatโ€™s called rumination). I donโ€™t like the feeling of getting high, so I keep my intake very low. I wish it could be more standardized though, as certain strains have made me paranoid or made my mind jump from topic to topic to topic in quick succession. Others have made me mellow, while others make it easier to focus on a single task for a long time. No matter what Iโ€™ve tried, they all keep me awake (Hence taking it in the morning), and Iโ€™ve tried my fair share of indica, sativa, and hybrid strains. I also go to counseling and wouldnโ€™t recommend simply self medicating. (Iโ€™ve also been on commercial anti anxiety meds – lorazepam made my heart race and my tongue spasm on half the lowest dose I could be prescribed – cannabis hasnโ€™t had these kinds of side effects)

  10. I love this segment of the show ๐Ÿ™‚ Even with a scientific background, articles are often so hard to read on your own and really understand what they're talking about. And it's exciting that we're finally getting some solid studies about the benefits of cannabis!
