Objectives

There is a growing movement across the U.S. legalizing the medical and recreational use of marijuana (cannabis). Medical cannabis has been approved for a number of psychiatric conditions. Exposure to cannabis may be associated with a number of neuropsychiatric consequences. Converging lines of evidence suggest that exposure to cannabis and other cannabinoids might be associated with a range of psychosis outcomes suggesting an exocannabinoid hypothesis. More recent data also suggests endocannabinoid dysfunciton in schizophrenia.

1. Describe the temporal relationships between exposure to cannabinoids and psychosis outcomes

2. Discuss the strengths and limitations of the evidence

3. Discuss the clinical implications of evidence

4. Discuss the endocannabinoid hypothesis
