Are deficits in cognition associated with psychotic-like experiences after cannabis?

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Not all individuals who smoke cannabis report psychotic‐like experiences. Given that risk factors

    for psychotic disorders are multifaceted, precipitating factors to psychotic‐like experiences after

    cannabis are likely to be equally complex. Reduced neurocognitive performance is associated

    with both psychosis risk and cannabis use. Therefore, it is possible cognitive performance may

    differentiate those who report psychotic‐like experiences after cannabis from those who do

    not. We determined whether those reporting psychotic/dysphoric experiences after cannabis

    had reduced neurocognitive performance compared to those reporting primarily euphoric

    experiences.
