Other names for Hashish
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.
