Marijuana/Cannabis Addiction

Many people think Marijuana is not addictive. Addiction is a brain disease, meaning marijuana use chemically alters the brain to make it think THC is a necessary substance. These chemical changes could be why some have uncontrollable cravings to use marijuana, and also why many have a difficult time reducing and/or stopping use. Withdrawal from marijuana is a real phenomenon. The marijuana of the 60’s- 90’s is drastically different than the lab grown cannabis that is around today. Marijuana was a natural weed with low THC content. The marijuana of today has exponentially higher amounts of THC.
