    Hi all,

    Bit of a sensitive subject but i have had a voice in my head for as long as i can remember which isnt my own and in all honesty has made life hell at points.

    Doctors tell me that weed causes voices , but i argue that for many years it has been the only thing that has helped me but dismiss it as they do not see it possible.

    I am trying to round up some (evidence based) research as to what is going on and potentially helping to prove cannabis can treat Audio hallucinations.

    In a recent study scientists found voices are created in the sub regions of the left temporal lobe (the same place that sorts through sound, sight ect).

    In other tests scientists believe that your brain foes not send the right signal to your ears to tell you that the voice is internal and MUST be a real sound.

    So obviously the part of your brain which makes a internal thought fails to tell your temporal lobe that its not a real sound and one believes they are hearing a external voice.

    But how does this happen. What does cannabis do to make these signals run smoothly ?

    I wouldnt blame you if you didnt have a clue as im struggling but if you have any info that will help me connect the dots please comment :)

    the doctors told you weed causes voices in your head? what doctors? you need to tell them that they're full of shit. tell them to read some recent medical research, especially the study that was done recently that said weed doesn't significantly contribute to any recognized mental illness, or cause them.
    if you're hearing voices in your head, you need to be under treatment. weed isn't going to be enough to help you, but feel free to use it, because it's not causing or adding to anything you have
