Marijuana is the most commonly used illicit drug in the United States. As it becomes legalized for medical and recreational use in more and more states, it is becoming more socially acceptable. But this does not mean it is harmless; alcohol is a legally and socially acceptable substance, and the destructive nature of alcoholism is well known. While short-term, medically prescribed usage of marijuana can be safe, many use the drug recreationally. Knowing the signs of marijuana abuse is a great first step in preventing addiction and withdrawal symptoms. At Solution Based Treatment & Detox, marijuana addiction and withdrawal symptoms are treated with compassion and personalized care.

Recognizing Marijuana Withdrawal
While marijuana withdrawal may not present as severely in physical symptoms, the psychological symptoms can be just as dangerous. Depending on how long someone has been abusing marijuana or how high their dosage is, quitting “cold turkey” can affect both the body and the mind.
Physical withdrawal symptoms can include:
- Excessive sweating
- Shaking and tremors
- Elevated body temperature
Additionally, psychological symptoms can include:
- Feelings of anxiety and depression
- Low moods and short temper
- Decreased appetite
- Lethargy and fatigue
- Confusion and hallucinations
When these symptoms manifest, it is tempting to return to marijuana use to “treat” them. However, nobody should have to take a drug to feel normal or be themselves. If you have noticed these symptoms in yourself or someone you care about, don’t be afraid to reach out for help. While attitudes towards marijuana use have softened, there can be real consequences to marijuana abuse.
