Cannabis and the brain.
Aust N Z J Psychiatry 1996; 30(2):179-83AN

Abstract

OBJECTIVE

The aim of the paper is to review the effects of Cannabis sativa on the human brain.

METHOD

A selective literature review was undertaken.

RESULTS/CONCLUSIONS

Cannabis sativa causes an acute and, with regular heavy ingestion, a subacute encephalopathy. There is no evidence of irreversible cerebral damage resulting from its use, although impairment of information processing might be a long-term consequence of heavy prolonged use. The precise relationship of cannabis to the functional psychoses such as schizophrenia has yet to be clarified.
