A marijuana addiction is no different than many other addictions that plague people nowadays. Marijuana can be deceptive, as it appears the most benign on the pecking order of illegal drugs. Unfortunately, marijuana can produce some negative consequences and some dangerous side-effects that can wreak havoc in the users life.
Addictions are usually defined as a pattern of use over time with a substance and or behavior that is usually associated with increased usage, and negative consequences. If I can’t go a day without a particular substance and or behavior, that usually indicates a problem, indicative of an addiction. I know what you might be saying, “but I only use on weekends.” Well unfortunately, “binging” so to speak, like using cannabis on Friday a nd Saturday only, does not remove the “addictive” label Delta 8 for pain relief
Marijuana addiction is part physical, and part psychological. What the user has to be concerned about with smoking marijuana is the primary chemical T.H.C. that is inherent to the cannabis. T.H.C. or chemically known as (delta-9-tetrathydrocannabinol) is the main psychoactive substance in weed. T.H.C. is stored in the users “fatty tissue”, sometime up to ninety days. This could be a problem if you are currently working, and your employer decides to give a “random drug screen.” If I am aware of that possibility, along with the negative consequences that would follow, yet I continue to smoke weed, then it would be safe to assume that I either don’t need a job, or am struggling with an addiction to marijuana.
A marijuana addiction can create negative consequences similar to other drugs. Loss of employment, misuse of finances, relationship and family struggles, D.U.I., and many more. Smoking cannabis on a regular basis has also shown signs of impaired learning ability, decreased motivation, and insomnia. Other side effects of marijuana include general anxiety, leading into panic attacks, weight loss, and nervousness.
