Recent studies by the University of Oxford, University of Leeds have been disproving the widespread myth that cannabis causes psychosis in users (primarily teens). In a study of 4830 16 year old twins (to rule out genetic factors) scientists found that the link between cannabis and psychotic episodes is correlative, not causative. That means that sometimes cannabis use and psychosis are caused by the same things, but cannabis use DOES NOT cause psychosis. Rather, environmental factors such as poor socioeconomic status (being poor) or being bullied will lead people to have psychiatric breaks and sometimes to self medicating with cannabis.

So chances are, you’re not crazy. You’re just under a lot of stress and using cannabis to mitigate that.
