Tips to Combat Marijuana Addiction

  • Extrovert your attention. Walking and spending time outside can be very therapeutic.
  • Make sure to eat healthy foods. A deficiency in vitamins and minerals can create a drop in mental and physical energy.
  • Go to the gym. Exercise can boost morale and reduce stress and anxiety.
  • Find a hobby or activity, that allows you to be in a different location than where you are using drugs.
  • Recognize the people in your environment, who affect you emotionally. They could be one of the reasons for your emotional problems.

Marijuana is a mind-altering psychoactive substance that doesn’t fall into a distinct category used to classify drugs. It has been called a depressant, a stimulant, and a hallucinogen and can be categorized as any of the three. However, Marijuana most suitably fits into a class of its own because there are no other known drugs that cause similar effects.

The part of the plant most commonly recognizable is the plant’s flowers, also called buds. It looks like dried plant material and is usually green but may also appear in shades of brown or purple. Marijuana is also made into other forms, like hash, that can look like sand or a more wet, resinous material.

Marijuana stays in the human body for quite some time. The active component, THC, is fat-soluble and can be stored in the system for months before being metabolized and released. On average, THC stays in the system for around 30 days. But this figure can vary widely depending on the amount consumed, the frequency of use, and how long the person was consuming Marijuana at that rate. Other controlling factors include the person’s body mass, overall health, and nutrition. It is not uncommon for Marijuana to take 60 days or longer to be undetectable in a urinalysis test.

This question has been highly debated, but the short answer is yes. Virtually any drug has the potential for abuse and addiction when misused, and Marijuana is no exception. Like alcohol, the drug’s legal status in many places doesn’t mean it’s non-addictive or safe. Marijuana is one of the most used substances in the US, after Tobacco and alcohol.

Marijuana is most commonly smoked. An assortment of devices may be used to accomplish ingestion in this manner, but the most common is a simple pipe or rolled into a joint. Dabbing is the practice of heating Marijuana extracts until they produce a vapor that can be inhaled. Marijuana can also be eaten. These products are commonly referred to as edibles and can have more intense and longer-lasting effects than smoking the drug.

After completing a marijuana detox and/or rehab in California, it is vital to arrange aftercare support. No one form of recovery support is the same for each person. Sober coaches, group meetings, outpatient programs, or sober living homes in California all offer excellent recovery opportunities to consider. The goal is to maintain life-long sobriety.
