Reduced Cognitive Performance with Marijuana Use


A new study published in the journal Human Psychopharmacology: Clinical and Experimental examined whether individuals experiencing psychotic-like effects from cannabis use suffered reduced neurocognitive performance.

Results showed those who experienced psychosis or dysphoric effects from marijuana use also had subtle inefficiencies in their cognitive processes.

This study adds to the literature showing that marijuana use may have detrimental effects on cognitive performance.

Individuals who experience psychosis or dysphoric effects (i.e., restlessness, anxiety, dissatisfaction) when using cannabis may be at greater risk for reduced cognitive performance and should therefore avoid marijuana consumption.
