Is Marijuana Really Addictive?
THC, or delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, in Cannabis is a chemical that produces the psychotropic affects many people come to rely on. What may have started as a “safer” way to get high becomes an easy go-to in times of stress or anxiety instead of healthy coping mechanisms.
Pot, Weed, and Mary Jane are just some of the “street names” people have come to call this drug.
You’re Making The Right Decision
In addition to replacing healthy coping mechanisms, marijuana addiction can cause many other physical and mental issues. A few of these are life-threatening. Many of these can be lifelong.
- The inability to sleep regularly or cope with emotional problems without the drug.
- Cancer and lung disease in those who smoke weed.
- The development of cannabis-induced psychotic disorder.
- The development of cannabis-induced anxiety disorder.
- The need to meet physical cravings for the drug.
- Permanent damage to concentration, memory, and critical thinking abilities.
- Chronic depression from damaged pleasure centers in the brain.
- Difficulty getting pregnant and male infertility.
- Erectile dysfunction.
How Long Does Marijuana Stay In Your System?
You may have read that THC stays in your system for 30 days on average. However, the time it takes for this drug to leave your system can actually vary. It will depend on how long you’ve been using, how much you used, the type of weed, genetic factors, and body weight. THC is stored in body fat.

Marijuana dependence causes withdrawal symptoms just like any other drug. Insomnia, depression, anxiety, stomach pain, aggression, nightmares… Nobody wants to experience uncomfortable and unpredictable THC withdrawal symptoms alone.
