Are You Battling Marijuana Addiction?

Treating Patients in Washington, Alaska, Oregon, & Beyond

Known more commonly as marijuana, cannabis sativa is a hemp plant that is commonly used to provide a desired “high” to individuals. This drug is also often called pot, grass, weed, and numerous other names. Unfortunately, it can also often be mischaracterized as a benign, harmless drug that has no potential side effects once the high has worn off.

However, marijuana contains 61 known relatives of Delta 9 Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), including more than 400 chemical toxins. When marijuana is burned, it produces additional toxic compounds. Though people often try to paint marijuana as a peaceful, free spirited drug from the ‘60s and ‘70s, the drug sold today often contains much higher THC content. This is due to vast hybridization of marijuana plants, creating a much more serious potency over the past 30 years.

The cannabis most commonly used today, especially when obtained illegally, frequently contains this higher potency. That means users face a much higher risk of addiction, health threats, and even psychological damage.
