Marijuana Addiction & Detox

Marijuana addiction or abuse of marijuana can lead to addiction in some people.  Although many people argue that marijuana is not addictive others argue that physical or psychological addictions are real.

THC or delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol is the main active ingredient in marijuana.  Marijuana potency has increased over the last 20 years.  It is common for marijuana THC to be from 1 to 7%.  THC acts on specific cannabinoid receptors in the brain, some brains have more receptors than others.  This area of the brain influences memory, thoughts, concentration, time perception and coordinated movement.

Abusing marijuana can cause learning problems, memory problems, decreased concentration, increased appetite, decreased coordination and difficulty solving problems.

Marijuana is a mind and mood altering drug and although it is viewed as safe, even recreational chronic use can lead to addictive behaviors.
