Introduction: Chronic cannabis use has been associated with impaired cognition and elevated psychological symptoms, particularly psychotic-like experiences. While Δ 9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is thought to be primarily responsible for these deleterious effects, cannabidiol (CBD) is purported to have antipsychotic properties and to ameliorate cognitive, symptomatic, and Cited by:

Majority of studies have suggested a significant cognitive decline in cannabis abusers compared to non-abusers and healthy controls.[8–10] A report by Bartholomew et al. suggested that cannabis use has a detrimental effect on prospective memory ability in young adults but users may not be aware of these deficits.

Cannabis is known to produce substantial acute effects. The cognitive abilities and symtoms observed earlier presented are introduced to the cannabis user.

During the first week the client generally is affected by cannabis, which makes the client unable to concentrate and keep up the attention, and hence he is entrusted to the guidance of his therapist. Context Cognitive impairments are associated with long-term cannabis use, but the parameters of use that contribute to impairments and the nature and endurance of cognitive dysfunction remain.

Rather, this paper focuses on a specific aspect pertinent to this association, that of cognitive dysfunction. Cannabis intoxication impairs cognitive processes. There is an increasing body of evidence demonstrating that cannabis users show persistent deficits in specific cognitive functions beyond the period of acute by: The pathways to cognitive dysfunction are given particular focus, including the role of the central nervous system (CNS) cannabinoid system.

Finally, the psychiatric effects of cannabis are considered in light of the idea that cognitive function may be the common denominator in the association between cannabis and psychotic disorders.

Cerebral blood flow (CBF) was measured in 12 long-term cannabis users shortly after cessation of cannabis use (mean days). The findings showed significantly lower mean hemispheric blood flow values and significantly lower frontal values in the cannabis subjects compared to normal controls.

However, the relationship between cannabis use and schizophrenia is complex. In particular, little is known about the effects of chronic cannabis use on the attention-related electric brain response in schizophrenia.

The task provides measures Cited by: the context of the similarity between cognitive deficits in cannabis users and those observed in schizophrenia14 and as specific to memory function This paper will update our knowledge with evidence from the most recent studies of cognitive function in human users with a focus on the long-term effects of cannabis use.

Disorders related to the misuse of certain drugs represent not only a worldwide public health problem, but also an economic and social issue. Adolescents and children represent the most vulnerable population for drug consumption and addiction.

Cannabis is the most commonly used substance of abuse in the United States after alcohol and tobacco (Carliner et al.

).In the US, cannabis use increased from 4% to % between and and – and the prevalence of Cannabis Use Disorder (CUD) increased from % to % in the same time (Hasin et al. ).Despite these increases in cannabis Cited by: Global evidence indicates that cannabis use/abuse acts as a risk factor for the emergence of schizophrenia, especially among early-onset cannabis users.

Similar indications were observed in animal studies, where chronic pubertal, but not adult, cannabinoid treatment resulted in lasting behavioral deficits, resembling at least some aspects of. Cannabis-induced cognitive dysfunction was found in the same group of cannabis users in another study and was likened to a prefrontal impairment.

The reduced blood flow, as seen in this study, may be a reflection of the passivity and bluntness seen in long-term users not being acutely intoxicated, and the increased blood flow observed after acute administration in other studies may reflect an effort to compensate for the impairing effects of cannabis Cited by:.

The long-term effect of regular cannabis use on brain function underlying cognitive control remains equivocal. Cognitive control abilities are thought to have a major role in everyday functioning Cited by:   Early-onset chronic cannabis users exhibited poorer cognitive performance than controls and late-onset users in executive functioning.

Chronic cannabis use, when started before may have more deleterious effects on neurocognitive by: Some studies demonstrate cognitive dysfunction in cannabis users during intoxication and for several hours following smoking, 1,2 others show impairment for a few days, 3,4 and yet others have shown lasting impairments for more than a month following cessation of use.
