Hashish Addiction

Marijuana use commonly becomes use disorder. Recent data suggests almost a third of all users have marijuana use disorder according to the National Institute of Drug Abuse. Those who start using before age 18 have proven four to seven times more likely to develop a marijuana use disorder than those who start in adulthood, too. Marijuana use disorder’s correlation with dependency is disputed among experts, but those who associate marijuana use disorder with dependency claim users feel physical withdrawal symptoms when they don’t use, which is the crux of the debate. 

Since Hashish is the most potent cannabis extract, its effects can arguably result in more intense dependency. The first week of quitting the substance is often cited for episodic irritability, difficulty sleeping, decreased appetite, intense cravings and restlessness.

Abuse Facts

Recent decades have seen a steady increase in the potency of the average hashish due to rising competition pushing cultivators to develop new hybrid plants.

Some hashish isn’t suitable to be eaten because it’s not always decarboxylated during its production.

While overdose is considered by many to be an impossibility for marijuana, research maintains that it’s possible with hashish, albeit not with mortal implications. Hashish overdose is characterized by severe paranoia and panic.
