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?
