Be Aware of the Marijuana Effects!

I haven't smoked marijuana but and normal tobacco and I can't say for sure which one is more addictive. However, they're both in top 10 most addictive substances on the planet so, obviously, this so called light drug is also pretty much damaging when it comes to addiction. Anyway, in case you're trying to stop marijuana addiction and you can't do it on your own, it's never ashamed to search for qualified help and follow some sort of addiction treatment So what if in that addiction group will be people which fight much more severe addictions and problems? You're basically in the same position.

Anyway, the reason I'm writing this post it to let everyone know about the risks of smoking marijuana.

1. Marijuana has considerable effects on the brain. These include hallucinations, delusions, impaired memory and disorientation. As a matter of fact, it is said that people that start to abuse this drug in their teen years will be faced with learning difficulties and a certain atrophy of the brain.

2. Marijuana has important effects on the blood pressure and heart. A couple of minutes after smoking a marijuana cigarette, blood pressure will decrease drastically, and heart begins to beat at a much higher rate. It can even increase the number of beats per minute by 50, and that is a lot. Needless to say, for a person with a weak heart, this can take to a stroke or even death.


 3. And of course, since the main method to consume marijuana is smoking, the consumers of this drug are faced sooner or later with severe respiratory issues like acute chest pain, obstructed airways they are faced with a higher risk of lung infection. Also, due to the fact that cannabis smokers deeply inhale the smoke and keep it in for longer periods of time, their lungs are much more exposed to the carcinogenic properties of smoking.

Therefore, even if this drug doesn't give a high degree of addiction, you should try to quit it as soon as possible. If you can't do it on your own, an addiction treatment program is always a good choice. Even if drug rehab sounds a bit too harsh for a marijuana smoker, this problem does require in most cases, a rigorous substance abuse treatment.
