Marijuana news from around the world

Marijuana Withdrawal

Marijuana has so many medicinal values that we cannot keep up with anymore. Not only does THC, one of the active ingredients in it help with so many illnesses but CBD, one of the biggest ones helps with even more. Cancer patients have said it helps them calm down and opens their appetite. Glaucoma patients say it helps relieve the tension and pressure on their eye. Even patients with Parkinson’s disease say marijuana has helped them sit still.


When it comes to quitting marijuana, we know for the most of us that it’s not a big problem. You come up with the conclusion that maybe you need to give it a break for a bit. Whether it’s for school, a job or just need to get things in your life back on track. So you decide not to buy again and tell yourself tonight will be the last time. After tomorrow, no more smoking weed. Then tomorrow comes and you wake up groggy, only to find yourself wanting more. You drink your morning coffee only to realize you’re still not full woken up yet. Then you keep thinking about your habitual wake and bake you would always do after bed. This only intensifies the feeling and now you’re craving another joint or just wanting to get high again.


Well this is considered marijuana dependency and according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, 9% of regular marijuana smokers are dependent on it. Many people confuse dependency with addiction. Just like addiction can lead to post-effects, marijuana withdrawals also are a common occurrence too. Unlike other drugs, withdrawals from marijuana only last a day or two at the most and are very minimal.


Lack of Sleep – Sleep is a big one that is usually prevalent after you stop using cannabis. The first night that you stop using will be difficult to fall asleep. You have been used to smoking right before bed or being tired enough before bed. Now that you try to sleep, you realize you are fully awake with so many thoughts running through your head.


Lack of Hunger – Another one that is very common is not being hungry the next day you have not smoked. The next day during breakfast you will feel that you have no appetite what so ever. By lunchtime you are still not as hungry as you usually are. By dinner you open up and start to eat a little. This only lasts one day.


Those are the two main affects you see after you have stopped smoking pot. People will tell you that dependency and cannabis withdrawals are not true. However you must remember that it only happens to 9% of regular users, not everyone. Just because it has not happened to someone, it does not mean that it can’t happen to you.


The two best ways to fight it and make sure these don’t affect you is to meditate or exercise. Exercising is great because it relaxes you, while making you tired enough to fall asleep, gets you hungry enough to open your appetite, helps the body get rid of waste by sweating and it even opens your pores. Meditating is another good way to forget about weed. It also helps you get your mind right. Meditating is often done before you get your day started or right before you fall asleep. If you smoking cannabis before sleeping, to help you sleep, it might be best to meditate before you sleep. This will get the mind to relax instead of racing while you are sleeping.
