The functional differences between antipsychotics and psychedelics substances are important. Psychedelics substances like cannabis does not appear to alter intrinsic brain activity.

Atypical antipsychotics genotoxicity appears to alter intrinsic brain activity and lipid peroxidation in vivo: Cannabis appears as non-genotoxic substance and an antioxidant.

Polyphenols/Vitamin C may have neuroprotective effects on lipid peroxidation induced by atypical antipsychotics.

"Polyphenols/Vitamin C may have neuroprotective effects on lipid peroxidation induced by atypical antipsychotics"  ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19225991

That citation is exclusive to en vitro research. Resveratrol would be literally annihilated in transit via extensive intestinal and/or hepatic glucuronidation/sulfation prior to reaching plasma, and I don't believe there's any conclusive data indicating that oral vitamin c can permeate the blood-brain barrier.

Vitamin C has been shown to cross the blood-brain barrier in the oxidized form, dehydroascorbic acid:

While I won't disagree that vitamin C is an effective compound to counter lipid peroxidation, I'm pretty sure intracerebral dehydroascorbic acid concentrations are tightly regulated however, the inclusion of the thiol-antioxidant NAC would be of significant importantance for a myriad of reasons - one of which being the abillity of GSH to reduce dehydroascorbic acid back to ascorbic acid.
