Cannabis Withdrawal Symptoms: How Do They Affect You?

May 05, 2018

Just like cannabis affects different people in different ways, alleged withdrawal symptoms from it also differ great from person to person…

Many long-term cannabis users swear down that they feel no withdrawals when ceasing cannabis, other than perhaps a few sleepless nights. On the other hand, there are those who feel groggy and out of sorts when they stop saturating their CB Receptors with THC on a daily basis.

The fact is, it’s subjective and what works here for the goose doesn’t necessarily apply to the gander. Every person reacts differently to cannabis, in the same way that folks react differently to the withdrawals. Some people report sleeplessness, moodiness, vivid dreams, changes in eating habits, some anxiety, and host of other effects.

No one really disagrees, despite which side of the fence they fall on this one, that cannabis withdrawal is no way near as bad as withdrawal symptoms from pharmaceutical drugs, even the over-the-counter variety. Some of those meds will leave you feeling more than groggy, and may include liver and even brain damage. Cannabis does none of that.

The other widely reported factor here is that any symptoms felt when withdrawing from cannabis are short-lived, and usually only last about a week. Another factor is how much cannabis you are withdrawing from and how often you took it. A milder user will often feel less withdrawals than a daily toker, who has been going strong fro years.

The science explains cannabis withdrawals simply and logically enough, noting that those CB Receptors need to adjust to normal levels, and that can take some time to regulate.

According to Dr. David Gorelick, a professor of psychiatry at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, “A minority of individuals who experience cannabis withdrawal – about 10% experience physical symptoms, such as muscle aches, muscle twitches, and GI upset, such as nausea or vomiting.”

Whichever side of the fence you fall on, there is no doubt that cannabis withdrawal affects some people quite badly, and is not to be underestimated. A solid regime of plenty of sleep, some green smoothies and an abundance of liquids should see anyone through their cannabis withdrawal period, whether they are just on a break or quitting for good.

Cannabis policy changes in Africa are welcome. But small producers are the losers by Clemence Rusenga

Cannabis is a drug crop with a long history in Africa. Alongside coca and opium poppy, it has been subjected to international control for nearly a century. The International Opium Convention of 1925 institutionalised the international control system and extended the scope of control to cannabis. In 1961 a new international convention was adopted to […]
