What is Cannabis?
Whether you’ve used it or not, many people have heard about this popular drug and its the various effects of cannabis abuse on people. Marijuana is a form of cannabis, a derived substance from a natural source, unlike many synthetic drugs. The cannabis plant, or cannabis sativa, grows in nearly any temperate areas of the world. This product is becoming increasingly accepted by many states as a medical alternative to pain relief. Delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol is the active main ingredient, also known as THC.
People aim to achieve a euphoric “high” by recreationally using the drug in forms of marijuana, hashish, and hash oil. Marijuana is the dried flowers and leaves that are derived from the cannabis plant itself. This is generally the least potent form of cannabis as it contains less THC, and is smoked or made into edible products. Hash oil is obtained from hashish, which is a thick oil that is smoked and contains the most THC resulting in a very potent substance.
Treatment for Substance Abuse
Programs that incorporate alternative cognitive behavioral therapies that address everyone individually have better success rates. Mental health issues often stem from substance addiction. Changing thinking patterns and creating positive mindsets can help an addicted person in their recovery process. A faith-based recovery program will help keep individuals on track and keep from falling into monotony. By prioritizing, relieving stress, having a substance replacement, and a nurturing relationship, addicts can help themselves manage their addiction with a supportive network of people.
