Research on paranoid feelings associated with cannabis consumption

In an effort to find the right reason for the frequent occurrence of paranoia across cannabis users, the Oxford University and King's College London in Manchester have embarked on joint research. The specific focus during the study was the THC cannabinoid and its association with paranoia. Thus, researchers found 121 experimental subjects who received 1.5 mg THC. An important addition here is that THC was administered in isolation, i.e. without additional cannabinoids and terpenes. The dose strength was roughly one joint.

Subsequently, each of the participants was tested using several scenarios, during which the investigated subjects were tested in virtual reality, in real social situations, in interviews and also in questionnaires.

Suitable environment (set & settings)

Smoking cannabis is often part of social activities and parties. While the party sometimes offers unforgettable experiences, for some it is also a source for all kinds of anxiety and paranoia.
