OCD

Introduction

OCD is an Anxiety disorder characterised by the obsessive urge for repetitive behaviour.

There is substantial overlap between OCD, Anxiety, PTSD, ADHD and other autism spectrum disorders and possibly also between the therapeutic potential of cannabinoids in the treatment of these disorders.

To date, CBD shows the most promising results in the treatment of OCD. As with many psychiatric disorders there is a clear correlation between the use of cannabis and the occurence of OCD.

Although this might suggest that cannabinoids can induce psychiatric disorders, there is increasing evidence that cannabinoids actually suppress obsessive behaviour.

This opens the possibility that patients are, consciously or unconsciously, self-medicating. More research is required.
