Every Brain Matters Speakers Meeting- Kobi Russell – recovery cannabis psychosis

Online Zoom Meeting

In this new era of industrialized THC, families need support and hope. Please join us on the second Wednesday of every month for messages of healing from the impacts of marijuana and the expanding drug crisis.  There will be a Q&A at the end of each meeting. This meeting may be recorded at the presenter’s discretion.

Kobi Russell is a recent graduate of Brandeis University who currently works in the fields of conflict resolution and accessibility. In late 2018, due to a “perfect storm” of triggers, including stress, lack of sleep, medication, and, most importantly, daily high-potency cannabis usage, Kobi had a severe and prolonged episode of cannabis-induced psychosis, CIP. During his recovery, a relative told him, “Kobi, you’ve gone to a place [mentally] that most people will never go.”

As he began speaking publicly about his experience with psychosis, sobriety, and recovery (both online and with his community), Kobi quickly reached the painful realization that he was far from alone. Kobi hopes that this talk and, ideally, future collaborations with Every Brain Matters will show that young people who experience CIP are not alone, that there are others who understand their experience on a deeply personal level, and that recovery is a journey––and it is absolutely possible!

Kobi is 25 years old and lives with his family in Somerville, MA. He enjoys getting active in nice weather and hiding inside when it snows!
