What is Marijuana addiction?

The THC in marijuana affects mental processes, coordination, perception of time, memory and sensory perception- it gives users a ‘high’ and feeling of relaxation.
Despite misconceptions, marijuana is addictive. Regular use of marijuana leads to functional and structural changes in the brain, which leads to dependence on the drug and withdrawal symptoms when the drug is stopped. Tolerance to marijuana develops and more and more of the drug is needed to get the same effect.
An addict is typically unable to stop using when they try to or continues to use despite the negative consequences of using.

Signs of marijuana addiction can include:

  • Secrecy around using and/or hiding use
  • Lack of motivation
  • Reduced cognitive abilities
  • Difficulties concentrating, remembering and learning
  • Giving up or not caring about interests & activities you once enjoyed
  • Needing more and more marijuana to get the same effect
