Danish researchers estimate that 15 percent of schizophrenic conditions in young men, aged 21-30, who heavily use potent marijuana could be halted if they had avoided overuse of the drug.
The study, published this week in the journal Psychological Medicine, claims that “cannabis use disorder”- which is roughly defined by heavy usage despite the experience of negative consequences – is directly related to early onset schizophrenia in some young men who are already genetically predisposed to the condition.
The study analyzed close to 7 million health records looking for links between the psychological condition, characterized by a dissociation with reality, and cannabis use disorder.
The study says that in 1995, only 2 percent of diagnosed schizophrenia cases could be linked to problematic cannabis use, with the figure rising to 8 percent since 2010. Cannabis use and the potency of cannabis have also significantly increased during the past two decades.
The study says cannabis use disorder is linked to only 4 percent of preventable schizophrenia cases in young women, as compared to 15 percent of preventable cases in young men.
