There are lots of reasons why people start using cannabis. One such reason is to escape from their problems. Occasionally, it’s a result of long term problems, such as panic, depression, and difficulties relating with friends and family. The fact is that cannabis is able to only distract them from their problems for a small period of time but that stretch of time is usually enough to form a dependency. So just how can marijuana users beat their addiction?
First, we will start with some simple information regarding cannabis. It can be found in numerous different forms and with varying levels of potency. Including forms like cannabis oil, weed, skunk, hash or grass. Even though they come from the same plant it’s the breed and cultivation of the plant can determine its potency. Cannabis can be prepared as a tea or baked into cakes but in the main it is smoked as a joint or pipe.
A great number of people find that the substance assists them to relax, cuts back pain levels and helps them sleep much better. Many people smoke socially which can normally form part of the dependency as the social element of taking the drug is sometimes just as pleasant as the overall effects.
Other effects can include; anxiety attacks, panic attacks, fear, cravings for food, light-headedness, nausea or vomiting, hallucinations, psychosis, and the loss of trust in those around you while under the influence. Plenty of people struggle to quit using cannabis despite the fact that it starts to affect them negatively both physically and mentally. Sadly, it is only at this time that the cannabis user may appreciate they have become dependent.
Also, there are physical effects that come with smoking or eating cannabis. These could include increased high blood pressure, increased pulse rate, permanently restricted fertility in both sexes, permanent problems with short term loss of memory, lack of coordination, lack of balance, and the increased prospect of developing a mental illness.
