Marijuana, also known as “pot,” “weed,” or “cannabis,” is the most commonly abused drug in the United States. It is comprised of a dry, shredded green/brown mix of flowers, stems, seeds, and leaves of the plant Cannabis sativa. It is usually smoked as a cigarette (joint) or in a pipe (bong or bowl). It is also smoked in a blunt, which is a cigar that has been emptied of tobacco and refilled with marijuana, sometimes in combination with another drug. Marijuana can also be mixed in food or brewed as tea. In its more concentrated, resinous form, marijuana is known as hashish, and as a sticky, black liquid, hash oil. The main active chemical in marijuana is THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol). Since it is extremely difficult to quit using, if you or someone you love is addicted to marijuana, seeking help from a marijuana rehab center is advisable.

The Short and Long-Term Effects of Marijuana
Membranes in certain nerve cells in the brain contain protein receptors that bind to THC. Once the membranes and the THC bind together, the THC kicks off a series of cellular reactions that ultimately lead to the high that users experience when they smoke or ingest marijuana. Short-term effects include increased heart rate, relaxed bronchial passages, and more. Users may also experience pleasant sensations, colors and sounds, or the user may experience sleepiness and/or depression. Users can also experience anxiety, fear, panic, and distrust. Long-term use of marijuana can lead to respiratory problems, cancer, memory loss, and loss of cognitive skills. An effective marijuana rehab program can prevent worsening of these physiological and psychological symptoms; call 877-548-4794 now for more information marijuana addiction help at Clarity Way.
