The effect of the cannabinoid agonist, Nabilone, was evaluated to determine its influence on individual physiology, temporal binding windows, and the subjective effects of the moving projected hand illusion (PHI) in comparison to the dopamine-releaser dexamphetamine (DEX) and schizophrenia (SCZ) patient studies. We found no correlation between physiology and subjective effects. Nabilone had no effect on temporal binding windows in the PHI, but increased the sense of self-agency, opposite to DEX and SCZ. This study shows that a cannabinoid agonist has differing effects on perception compared to DEX and SCZ, furthering our understanding of cannabinoids and their relation to psychosis.
