Effective and Affordable Marijuana Addiction Treatment for Malaysians at The Cabin Chiang Mai
Marijuana is the most commonly used illicit drug. It is a dried mixture of the leaves, flowers, stems and seeds of the hemp plant Cannabis sativa, while hashish is a potent resin extract of the same plant. They are generally smoked or consumed as food. The main active ingredient in marijuana and hashish is delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC enters directly into the bloodstream and goes straight to the brain, influencing brain cell receptors to create altered senses of sight, sound and time. It also creates feelings of euphoria and increased relaxation.
There is much debate about its effects, and changes in legislation are making it legal in more and more parts of the world. Due to the fact that it is not perceived as an addictive drug, many users fail to notice the warning signs until they’ve already developed a physical dependency. Marijuana addiction affects millions of people worldwide and has a negative impact on them psychologically, financially, socially and professionally.
