What Is A Cannabis Addiction?

Cannabis addiction has increased throughout the United Kingdom and isn’t spoken about enough due to the stigma behind it. Known under several different names on the street such as weed, mary jane, bud, grass and green. Its original name Cannabis comes from where it originates ‘Cannabis Sativa.’ It is a mixture of stems, dried leaves and flowers.

 

It is an illegal substance, though it is highly attainable. The most common way of consuming the cannabis substance is by smoking it in a rolled cigarette form or smoking on a pipe or ‘bong.’ You can also consume cannabis baked in food or even brewed into drink form.

 

Many people seek out cannabis as it gives out a relaxed, ‘chilled’ feeling, this is due to the effect on the brain’s nervous system. Cannabis gives individuals an increased hunger that causes them to consume food and it is known in popular culture as the ‘munchies.’ The ‘euphoric’ feeling that the drug gives off can cause people to lose their surroundings.

 

One of the main reasons that cannabis addiction is overlooked in society as many people believe cannabis to be a harmless, mild drug that can be consumed to take the ‘edge’ off. It is a mistake to think of this drug as harmless as consuming cannabis frequently in large doses for long periods of time can seriously affect your physical and mental health.

Signs Of Cannabis Addiction

Different types of signs can vary depending on the individual and this is through a number of reasons such as time of use, how much they are using and many more but there are common signs that you can spot early so you can get help through rehabilitation.

 

The cannabis substance can stay inside your body’s system for a long period of time so you might start to discover signs earlier and later than others depending on the person.

 

These are some of the most common signs that you can look out for when dealing with a cannabis addiction or if you are starting to suspect you have a cannabis addiction:

Cannabis is a highly addictive substance which gives an effect on the brain’s nervous system that they need to smoke or consume cannabis in order to feel ‘normal’ and helps them get on with their everyday life.
