Marijuana is often described as a safe and non-addictive recreational drug that causes people to feel relaxed. However, this description is usually said by people who use it, and who might be unknowingly addicted to it. The truth is that marijuana can be addictive, and a marijuana addiction can be destructive to your day-to-day life, health, and happiness.
Atlanta Treatment can help you break the painful cycle of marijuana addiction. Our Marietta drug rehab center can create customizable treatment plans and therapies to help you regain sobriety. We’re in this together, so let’s proceed down the path of sobriety together.

What is Marijuana?
Marijuana is a naturally growing plant that some states allow people to grow themselves within the limit of the law. When it is smoked and inhaled or ingested, it can cause a “high” feeling, among other side effects. Because it occurs in nature and has been partially legalized in some states, many people are misled to believe that it must be safe. Like all drugs, recreational or not, marijuana can lead to serious physical and mental health issues.
Marijuana Addiction Symptoms & Side Effects
Side effects of marijuana use include:
- Memory loss
- Inability to focus
As marijuana addiction worsens, the user will feel a strong urge to use more and more marijuana than before. Some people will find that they cannot relax unless they have had marijuana recently. Others begin to spend all of their money on marijuana and related paraphernalia.
You might be addicted to marijuana and not realize it because it hasn’t caused any outward physical symptoms. Ask yourself how often you use marijuana and, perhaps more importantly, how often you feel the need to use it. If you are concerned at all that you might be developing a marijuana addiction, then please reach out to us today by dialing (678) 379-3111. We would be happy to talk to you about how we can help.
How is Marijuana Addictive?
The primary chemical component in marijuana and cannabis is THC, which is what creates the psychological effects of the drug. THC is not an addictive chemical, so marijuana use does not cause a physical dependency like opiates and other drugs. Instead, marijuana use can cause psychological dependency, especially in people with addictive personalities. With this said, marijuana can be highly addictive to certain people.
