Author(s): Ames, F. R.

Journal/Book: Aust N Z J Psychiat. 1996; 30: P O Box 126, Karrinyup 6018, Australia. Australian Nz J Psychiatry. 179-183.

Abstract: Objective: The aim of the paper is to review the effects of Cannabis sativa on the human brain. Method: A selective literature review was undertaken. Results/Conclusions: Cannabis sativa causes an acute and, with regular a heavy ingestion, a subacute encephalopathy. There is no evidence of irreversible cerebral damage resulting from its use, although impairment of information processing might be a long-term consequence of heavy prolonged use. The precise relationship of cannabis to the functional psychoses such as schizophrenia has yet to be clarified.
