Marijuana addiction treatment

There is no such thing as soft drugs

Any drug affects the brain and changes consciousness. Marijuana is no exception.

Effect on human body

Marijuana (officially – cannabis, hashish) is a psychoactive substance (cannabinoid) extracted from dried cannabis leaves and buds.

 


Marijuana use is most popular among young people. The desire to assert oneself, to experience unusual sensations and banal interest “put” weed in a person’s hand.

 


Marijuana affects the human brain and tissues of various glands. Cannabinoids especially accumulate in brain tissues and cause impaired coordination of movement, affect memory and consciousness in general, cause euphoria, subtle senses, color and sound perception. These obsessive states further become a problem in the treatment of smoking weed.

Methods of use

There are several ways to use marijuana, depending on the type of cannabis processing:

 

  • smoking crushed pieces of weed;
  • inhaling steam using a special device for the evaporation of psychoactive substances from dry weed;
  • chewing hashish;
  • eating foods with the addition of weed and its derivatives.

 


The clinic develops treatment management for smoking marijuana based on its method of use.

Signs of marijuana addiction

At the initial stage of smoking weed, the signs may be undistinguished and quite similar to mild intoxication. However, once a specific smell of weed or unusual behavior is noticed, it is a reason to consult with a specialist in narcology. Doctors strongly recommend being attentive to people at risk.

 


Here are some signs of using weed and its derivatives that worth attention:

 


changes in behavior:

 

  • unreasonable excitement;
  • mental imbalance;
  • insomnia;
  • distorted perception of time and space;
  • irritation;

 

 

physical changes:

 

  • unreasonable smile and fits of laughter;
  • bloodshot eyes, swollen eyelids;
  • dry mouth;
  • increased appetite;
  • hyperhidrosis;
  • high blood pressure;
  • rapid pulse;
  • the smell of burnt weed from the body and breath;
  • dizziness and headache;
  • blackouts, hallucinations, delusions;
  • mental disorders;
  • impaired coordination of movement;
  • heart problems, etc.

 


social changes:

 

  • change of social environment;
  • conflicts in the family;
  • problems at school, work;

 


criminal changes:

 

  • property theft;
  • car theft;
  • robberies.

 

 

In case of any suspicions, do not hesitate to contact a narcologist. Our specialists will dispel your concerns or facilitate and help the patient to give up smoking weed.

Negative effects and consequences

Smoking cannabis affects primarily the respiratory and circulatory systems.

 


Inhaling high temperature carcinogens can cause chronic diseases and even cancer of the mouth, bronchi, and lungs. Narcotic substances are absorbed into the bloodstream and enter every human organ, causing malfunctions and complications. Here are just some of the effects of smoking marijuana:

 

  • brain – cell death, disorders of the speech centers, memory, consciousness;
  • cardiovascular system – heart palpitations, high blood pressure, changes in the structure of the heart muscle;
  • psyche – panic attacks, development of addictions, schizophrenia, psychosis, delusions, hallucinations;
  • reproductive system – infertility, hormonal changes.

 


Marijuana has been scientifically proven to have an extremely negative effect on the fetus: it inhibits the fetal development, negatively affects the reproductive function in boys, interferes with the formation of the nervous system, vision and healthy psyche of the fetus. A child can become a drug addict involuntarily with his/her drug addicted mother’s milk.

 


The consequences of smoking weed are dangerous not only by direct complications on the body, but also by growing psychological dependence. The elusive state of “high” forces to increase the dose and take up harder drugs (opiates, barbiturates, psychedelics, etc.).
