Within the last few years marijuana has been one of the most debated topics. Whether it should be legal or not. One topic that has been virtually ignored is if marijuana has withdrawal effects.
What is withdrawal?
Withdrawal is a group of signs and symptoms that result from the abrupt end to the using of a substance. These symptoms also occur when people decrease their dosages.
Can marijuana abuse lead to withdrawals?
According to a new study by the Journal of Addiction Medicine those who use marijuana heavily, especially in their teens, can experience withdrawal symptoms. In this study teens receiving outpatient treatment for drug abuse about 40% of the clients experienced symptoms of withdrawals when they stopped using marijuana.
What are marijuana withdrawal symptoms?
Unlike other drugs where addicts in withdrawal experience excruciating pain marijuana withdrawal is more subtle. Some symptoms you may experience are:
- Being irritable
- Being anxious or worried
- Experiencing depression
- Low appetite
Other symptoms people experience from marijuana withdrawal they often confuse for a common cold or even just bad day.
- Stomach pain
The longer and heavier your marijuana abuse is the more likely you are to experience
