What is marijuana exactly?

Marijuana is a plant that occurs naturally and is commonly referred to as cannabis. The drug itself is from dried cannabis leaves that are then ground up and smoked. The chemical that produces the key effects found from smoking marijuana is called Tetrahydrocannabinol, aka THC. THC is molecularly similar to the neurotransmitter chemical called anandamide, allowing it to easily bind to neurons and induce a state of relaxation and pleasure.

The use of marijuana correlates with a higher rate of psychosis in users compared to non-smokers, but scientists can’t necessarily agree why that’s the case. There’s a strong possibility that it activates latent psychosis in users.

Around 9% of marijuana users eventually become addicted and studies have shown that it can permanently lower IQ by an average of 8 points over time for long-term smokers. Because marijuana is one of the most used drugs, even 9% being substance-dependent represents a large number of individuals using mind-altering substances.

Marijuana use in Virginia

According to SAMHSA, in 2019 12.48% of Virginias smoked marijuana at least once over the past year. Marijuana is now legal in the state of Virginia as of 2021, but it can reasonably be assumed that somewhere around the same amount, if not slightly more, smoke marijuana compared to when it was illegal.

While the number of those addicted to a legal substance remains non-zero, it’s advised that anyone who suspects they might be dependent on marijuana should call a treatment center for options. This is where Landmark Recovery steps in to help get you back on your feet.

Marijuana detox

Detoxing from marijuana is fairly simple and straightforward, but it’s best to make sure you’re doing it under the supervision of a properly licensed individual to maximize the effectiveness. There’s no magic method to detox and it basically consists of abstaining from smoking for an extended period. For more severe cases of withdrawal, Landmark makes use of medication-assisted therapy to lower the risk of relapse and unpleasant symptoms.

To provide the best treatment possible, we make sure we treat patients with a holistic method that includes therapy and counseling to treat the root causes of addiction. Residential and outpatient treatments are available depending on your level of medical need, as are 12-step programs like AA and NA to encourage you along the path to full, lasting recovery. An alumni program is made available to graduated patients to help maintain sobriety over the long term and provide addiction education to prevent relapse.
