Marijuana Addiction Treatment
Marijuana is one of the most controversial drugs in the world today. As of October 17th, 2018, the recreational use of Marijuana is legal in Canada. Canada is not just the only country that started to implement federal legislation allowing the usage of Marijuana to become prevalent and normal. Many countries have legalized its use and more people can access it for medical and recreational purposes. Nevertheless, marijuana abuse and addiction can be a problem for individuals and loved ones.
Marijuana is the dried seeds, stems, flowers and leaves of the Cannabis Indica or the Cannabis Sativa plant. Cannabis has a chemical called THC which produces psychedelic mind-altering effects on an individual.
Marijuana can be consumed by/through:
– joints/ hand-rolled cigarettes
– water pipes/ bongs
– blunts/ cigar wraps
Weed, which is another term for marijuana, is the most common drug being used, especially for young adults. Which is not surprising because THC has been steadily increasing in the past decades.
Marijuana Addiction Symptoms
An individual suffering from Marijuana cannot function on a daily basis without the need for the high and relaxation from Marijuana. There are many different effects that can be experienced after the usage of Marijuana. On a physical basis, when marijuana is consumed through inhalation, it can irritate the lungs which may lead to asthma attacks, bronchitis, and chronic cough. When smoked, the THC passes from the lungs into the bloodstream, blood then, takes the chemical to the brain as well as to other organs in the body. It can affect specific brain cell receptors that react to natural chemicals like THC and replace them. These chemicals are important in the normal development and functioning of the brain, and THC can over-activate certain areas that can leave an individual feeling high.
Marijuana use is also known to affect the brain development of younger brains. THC can affect the learning, thinking and memory functions of the brain. In addition, the brain is the conductor of the body, THC affects an individuals concentration, reaction to stimuli and coordination – making simple tasks like driving a car or riding a bike difficult.
In worse scenarios, marijuana in higher and larger dosage throughout development could result in psychosis and hallucinations that make an individual paranoid. In addition, an individual can see changes in mood, impaired memory, altered senses, inability to focus, difficulty in motor and body movement and delusions.
