The use of marijuana can be one of the most challenging addictions. Marijuana can be legally smoked in some countries. And most of the smokers, it is believed that smoking marijuana is not harmful and you can not get addicted to it. As a result, a person who is smoking marijuana does not understand the problem of addiction, and the treatment is delayed, often after 5 to 10 years of regular consumption. People who regularly smoke marijuana often have typical symptoms of addiction, one of which is the inability to control consumption, despite the various negative consequences of consumption. The cessation of marijuana can lead to dangerous abstinence, which is often assimilated to other severe drug withdrawal symptoms.
Marijuana’s smoking may increase into problematic use or different forms of addiction. Recent studies show that about 30% of marijuana users have a particular form of consumption disorder. Individuals who start marihuana before the age of 18 has a 4- to 7 times to increase the addiction to marijuana than starting as an adult. Marijuana disorder is associated with physiological dependence – when a person experiences abstinence if they do not take drugs.
Persons who often use marijuana indicate abstinence such as:
- mood and sleep disorders
- decreased appetite
- need to smoke
- various forms of physical discomfort that are particularly intense during the first week after cessation and can last about 2 weeks
Marijuana’s addiction occurs when the brain adapts to a large amount of drug that reduces the natural production and sensitivity of chemicals. When this happens, the person can no longer take the drug, despite all the negative consequences of consumption.

If you do not have any motivation or reason to quit smoking marihuana, here are some bad things that weed causes to your body:
Scientists have found that this substance has the most significant impact on the psyche when investigating the effects of THC on the human body. When smoking marijuana, the concentration of THC in the blood reaches the maximum in a few minutes. If the body ingests this active substance, the amount of THC in the blood reaches a peak at half an hour or an hour.
Studies have shown that after smoking marijuana, THC hurts the human capacity for up to 24 hours. THC products are excreted via the liver and kidneys, but the cleavage products of this active substance in the urine can be detected six weeks after smoking marihuana.
Marijuana addiction develops rapidly
Marijuana’s smokers can have a dual effect. Humiliation, joy and relaxation are the emotions begun by the beginners. Abuse of these substances also causes thinking disorders, distorts emotions, perception, and sensations, disturbs memory, concentration, and coordination, may result in hallucinations and illusions, and aggression may occur. Researchers say that for people with at least one smoke of marijuana, the risk of developing an addiction is 10% bigger. Often, marijuana smokers can no longer control themselves and continuously seek to be dizzy: people become addicted to these drugs.
Marihuana is especially harmful to the following groups of people:
- For pregnant women, because the active substance THC reaches the baby through the mother’s blood.
- For adolescents who even accidentally smoked marijuana, as a result of the harmful effects of THC, they could become victims of mental and physical development.
- For people with a tendency to mental illness, smoking marijuana can trigger and delay the onset of mental disease or disrupt their treatment.
- Smoking marijuana can be the cause of acute mental illness, cannabis psychosis, depression or even suicide.
New treatments are being developed
Particularly worrying are the symptoms of marijuana and alcohol at the same time. The findings of the research confirm that the use of these substances together represents a danger not only to the person but also to the public. Mainly these people are often accused of accidents. The high number of marijuana smokers and their ever-younger age reveal the growing demand for treatment-dependent marihuana clients.
Specialists, recognizing that treatment for marijuana addiction requires different methods than those that are currently applied, encourages scientists and doctors from different countries to develop new therapies and methodologies to help them recover from their dependence on marijuana use.
Long-term consumption of marijuana darkens memory
For a long time, people who smoke marijuana are becoming more and more eager to learn and remember in time, according to a new study author. “It certainly arouses the brain,” said Lambros Messinis, director of the study at Patras University Hospital in Greece.
Newscientist.com reports that L.Messinis and his colleagues have examined twenty long-term users of marijuana mental abilities.
These people used drugs on average for 15 years and smoked at least four marijuana’s joints per week. Their brain became harder to learn than twenty short-term marijuana users who smoked an average of seven years and were significantly more difficult than the 24 control groups who only consumed the drug occasionally or did not use it at all.
According to Wayne Hall, MD, counsellor of the World Health Organization’s Drug Prevention:
1. One in six adolescents from time to time is becoming addicted to marijuana.
2. Cannabis doubles the risk of developing schizophrenia and other mental illnesses.
3. When a teenager smokes marijuana, he becomes less successful at the school since marijuana consumption slows down intellectual development.
4. One in ten adults who do not stop smoking marijuana becomes addicted. Then there is a way to try harder drugs.
5. To drive while smoking marijuana is not the best idea. Also, as with drinking alcohol, the chance of an accident increases.
6. Smoking marijuana during pregnancy is common due to the weight of a newborn baby.
