Cannabis Addiction Treatment and Rehabilitation

Marijuana, Skunk and Cannabis Addiction Treatment

Cannabis, also known as marijuana is one of the most popular recreational drugs in the world. It is seen as a low-risk drug and many users claim it offers a high without any negative side effects. New research shows that, while much of the hysteria around cannabis is a myth, it can still cause problems. Cannabis has been shown to be addictive. It can also cause paranoia, damage brain development in young people and cause issues with memory. It has even been known to bring on psychological issues in people who may be predisposed to certain mental illnesses.

Cannabis has also changed a great deal since it first rose to popularity. In the 50s and 60s cannabis, which was often called “weed” and was just that. It was a wild strain of plant that, when smoked or eaten produced a mild high. Since then, genetic modification by growers and selective breeding has drastically changed the nature of cannabis. Modern cannabis is often referred to as skunk, which is a much stronger and more potent form of cannabis. This new skunk gets users higher but it also magnifies any negative effects on the user. People are often not prepared for how much the stronger skunk cannabis will affect them.

It is important to remember that, while cannabis is not as physically addictive as some other drugs, users can still develop a psychological dependency. People may use cannabis as a means of dealing with stress, escaping reality or handling negative emotions. This can lead people to feel that they need cannabis to get through their everyday lives.
