Get Your Marijuana Addiction Treated by Certified Therapists
From teenagers to adults, marijuana is a famous abused substance easily available in the US. Sellers obtain it from the flower, seed, stem, or leaves of cannabis. If we explain it further, marijuana is a blend of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (Cannabidiol). Both are chemical compounds available in marijuana and known as cannabinoids.
THC produces euphoria (feeling of pleasure), whereas CBD is famous for reducing pain and preventing seizures. In marijuana addiction, only THC plays a role in creating dependence and long-term feelings of pleasure. That’s what gets you addicted to marijuana. At Believe Detox Center, we help you overcome the addiction and harmful impact of marijuana on your body.
Before we explore our treatments, you must know how marijuana is destroying your health. So, let’s get started!
How Marijuana Destroy Your Health?
Marijuana addiction is a chronic disease that attacks your body as a “whole person.” It may surprise you that the addiction affects your physical, mental, and emotional health. Even some health diseases can become permanent if your addiction intensity is high. Here are some common effects of marijuana on your body.
- Mental Health
Marijuana can cause serious mental problems that may last permanently. You may face difficulty in decision making, lower IQ, memory dysfunction, anxiety, and depression. Furthermore, some patients also experience emotional imbalance, psychotic episodes, and paranoia.
- Physical Healt
Besides mental health, marijuana barely destroys your physical health as well. It causes chronic bronchitis, pneumonia, high heart rate, loss of movement and balance. Sometimes, patients also face lowered immunity, lack of coordination, and athletic performance due to the addiction.
- Daily life
Daily life includes educational outcomes, driving, career, relationships, creativity, and much more. Marijuana decreases coordination and concentration that barely affect your daily life tasks. A person with marijuana addiction may misread road signs and horns while driving which may lead to accidents.
