What Causes Marijuana Psychosis?
Marijuana Psychosis is caused by habitually using marijuana or attempting to stop using marijuana suddenly, without tapering off. Ingesting large amounts of THC with some frequency over an extended amount of time makes a person more likely to experience psychotic symptoms. This consumption can trigger underlying mental health conditions or exacerbate existing mental health disorders.
There is no standard quantity of THC that will conclusively cause a person to enter into a THC Psychosis. Nor is there a guarantee that this psychosis would not have eventually emerged without the use of marijuana. But a recent study has shown that high-volume, habitual use of marijuana makes a person five times more likely to develop psychosis than a person who doesn’t smoke marijuana.
