The plant cannabis is among the most common drugs found in nature. It is an important ingredient in marijuana, hemp, and perhaps many other types of cannabis grown in different parts of the world. In fact, it is one of the most popularly used herbs throughout the entire world. Unfortunately, marijuana has serious side effects that can lead to serious problems, especially when it is smoked. Smoking cannabis is highly addictive, and users must be aware of how it works and what they can do to avoid addiction.
Unlike other forms of cannabis, medicinal cannabis only contains a very small amount of THC or tetrahydrocannabinols – just a little over two percent in most cannabis plants. THC is the chemical component in cannabis that produces the “high” associated with smoking cannabis. There are two primary types of THC: THC-A and THC-B. When cannabis users consume cannabis, they inhale the smoke and take in the small amounts of the two chemicals in the smoke. However, some medical cannabis users also use another type of cannabis – CBD – which has very little or no THC and is extracted from the plant in a way that does not affect the user’s perception of having high levels of THC. This type of cannabis is called CBD and is increasingly becoming popular for its various medical benefits.
Hash oil is another popular method of ingesting cannabis – but not solely because hash oil is made from cannabis. Hash oil refers to CBD oil, but it also has a great deal of other substances added to it to make it more pleasant to smoke. It typically contains things like vegetable oil (the main ingredient), butter, molasses, sugar, and even protein supplements. But although hash oil has many mind-altering substances, it is also noted for having powerful anti-anxiety and anti-spastic properties.
Medical cannabis users who use hash oil will sometimes experience an altered state of consciousness, or “clarity,” which is experienced as a result of the patient falling into a sleep-like state. Some people have reported having an out of body experience when using hash oil, wherein they report actually seeing themselves lying on top of the cannabis plant, or feeling as if they are walking through a tunnel. Another common effect from CBD is that it can be an opiate-like substance with the ability to cause euphoria when used excessively. So, even though there is a chance of dependency with hash oil, recreational users still report feeling much more “high” to use it.
One of the most common side effects from using marijuana is the inability to focus on tasks. This is especially true for those who are starting to become addicted to marijuana. This inability to focus can cause problems in one’s professional and personal life, and can even lead to depression in some cases. The most common symptoms of this mental blockage our inability to complete even the simplest tasks, and difficulty focusing. Many who suffer from this mental disease are unaware that their addiction to marijuana is the culprit – until it is too late to change their ways.
There are many other side effects from cannabis use that are less noticeable, but have far reaching effects on the mental health and well being of those who use it. The lack of physical dependence makes cannabis use less of a physical addictions problem, but it can create mental health problems with its constant mental stimulation. As more information about cannabis addiction becomes available, it is clear that it should be treated as an addiction just like other drugs such as nicotine, alcohol and caffeine. With all the negative side effects associated with cannabis use, it is surprising that so many people continue to partake in its use on a daily basis.
