Cannabis and mental health

"Clearing the Air" examines the links between mental health and substance use, particularly cannabis use among youth under 25 years of age. We summarize expert opinions as well as the results of a non-systematic search of the research and grey literature available at the time of writing, with the caveat that knowledge on evidence-informed practices will continue to evolve over time.

Since the literature summarized here represents only one type of evidence, we have integrated these findings with insights from mental health and addictions service providers along with the experiences of children, youth and families into a learning resource.
