Interesting that CBD appeared to reduced psychotic symptoms and apparently caused a trend toward improved performance on cognitive tasks. I have a son (56) presently in a hospital with long term schizoaffective disorder. Medication does help, but occasionally the psychotic symptoms break through. I plan to send this article to my son's doctor. Any comment?

Hi Barbara, I'm also the mother of a son with schizoaffective disorder, on multiple high dose meds with breakthrough symptoms. I'd be very interested in hearing your son's response if he did have a CBD trial (I know it's not “data” but would still appreciate hearing. Wishing you both the best.
