Such a seemingly harmless word has many pseudonyms and false opinions. And yes, there are no soft drugs. Anything that distorts consciousness and affects the human brain is a disaster with unpredictable consequences.
What is weed?
Weed (Cannabis Sativa, Hashish, Marijuana) is a narcotic substance – tetrahydrocannabinol and cannabinol (a group of cannabinoids), obtained from the marijuana leaves and buds.
Cannabinoids accumulate most in brain tissues, where they cause impaired coordination of movement, affect memory and consciousness, increase the feeling of euphoria, sharpen the senses, and distort the perception of color and sound. The deceitfulness of these intense sensations and the thirst to experience them again becomes a problem in the treatment of addiction to “smoking weed”.
Affordability and accessibility make this drug popular among young people, and its effect gives false desires: the opportunity to assert oneself, experience unusual sensations.
How to quit smoking weed?
Quitting weed begins with recognition of the problem. The desire to quit smoking, supported by the help of clinic specialists (narcologists, psychotherapists) will give a confident result. The main thing is not to postpone the first appointment with a narcologist, which will be a good motivational stimulus.
Signs of smoking weed
At the initial stage, the signs of smoking weed are not obvious enough and are similar to alcohol intoxication. Here are some of them:
- changes in behavior: mental imbalance, anxiety, unreasonable excitement, distorted perception of time, unreasonable fits of laughter, insomnia;
- physical changes: the smell of burnt weed from the body and breath, bloodshot eyes, dry mouth, irregular appetite, hyperhidrosis, high blood pressure, blackouts, hallucinations, impaired coordination of movement, increased fatigue, daytime sleepiness;
- social changes: change of social environment, dubious friends, family and professional conflicts, problems at school/university;
- criminal changes: loss of valuables, debts, loans, property and car theft.
In case of any suspicions, do not hesitate to contact a narcologist. Our specialists will help you to diagnose the true condition, dispel your concerns or facilitate treatment and help the patient.
Narcotic substances enter with blood every organ and cell of a person, causing disturbances and complications.
The effect and some consequences of smoking weed:
- brain – disorders of speech, memory, consciousness, dying off of brain cells;
- cardiovascular system – high blood pressure, changes in the structure of vessels and the heart muscle;
- respiratory organs – chronic diseases of the bronchi and lungs, cancer of the oral cavity and larynx with metastases into the lungs;
- psyche – panic attacks, addiction, hallucinations, psychosis, delirium, schizophrenia, dementia;
- reproductive system – hormonal disorders, infertility.
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” and “euphoria”, the fear of not experiencing it again forces us to increase the dose and choose heavier drugs.
