Among nicotine and alcohol, marijuana is easily one of the most popular recreational drugs in the world today. Unlike most other drugs around the world, marijuana is still climbing in popularity. Also rising is the strength of marijuana itself. People have been constantly researching and updating ways of growing stronger weed. More THC content means stronger effects, which makes weed more valuable. This has led to new levels of potency in marijuana.
Marijuana today is twice as potent as the stuff people were smoking in the 70s and 80s! When you smoke marijuana, THC enters your blood via the walls of your lungs and quickly flows to your brain. THC is then stored in fatty tissues and can effect users for weeks or sometimes months.
The effects of THC in your brain and body vary depending on the potency of the weed, the person smoking & how tolerant they are of marijuana (the more you smoke the more tolerant you become). Although it is not a major cause of mental illness we all know marijuana can alter your thinking and judgment. It has also been known to cause strong paranoia, extreme anxiety and psychosis.
To be honest, if you decide to smoke weed occasionally you will probably not have any of these problems. I'm not saying you're all clear to smoke weed, but statistics show that it is illegally. So forget all that stuff for now, I would like to talk about what actually will happen to the common marijuana smoker.
A Huge Lifestyle Change.
This is the most common problem the average weed smoker is going to encounter. You may be surprised to learn that nearly every long-term marijuana smokers behavior will eventually cause his or her very own lifestyle change.
As 'smoking weed' slowly increases on your priorities, some of the more valuable things in life start to slip you by. Slowly, you become detached. Your relationships end up shallow and your motivation nose-dives. A long-term smokers lifestyle will eventually take a sharp turn for the worse.
Why does this happen? Basically, if you have smoked weed for years – you are no longer seeking fulfillment. The marijuana delivers it to you. Heavy stuff I know! Strong marijuana smokers can be quite content without seeking further fulfillment. Smoking on the regular, this can go for years. Often a smokers recreation, studies, or personal development are abandoned. This is the most common side effect of smoking weed. It is also underestimated as to how serious and life changing it really can be.
Long-term users of marijuana also feel dependent. Contrary to common belief marijuana has recently proved both psychologically and physically addictive. Some people do not quit smoking weed until years into their lives. When they do try to stop using it they discover many physical symptoms that can quickly stop their attempts to quit weed.
So next time you smoke marijuana please remember that this little plant has an addictive hold of thousands of people. It is causing many of them harm through stealing their motivation to seek fulfillment. Stealing their life ambition.
To help diminish the ill effects of marijuana abuse, there are some weed detoxification products that are available in today's market. There are even some natural remedies available for people who want to flush out the harmful toxins in the body, natures way. Marijuana is addictive; even it's not impossible to stop using any drug.
