Addiction Potential: Cannabis contains delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the primary psychoactive compound responsible for its mind-altering effects. Regular and excessive use of cannabis can lead to tolerance, physical dependence, and addiction. Factors such as genetics, frequency and duration of use, and individual susceptibility can contribute to the development of cannabis addiction.

Signs and Symptoms: Symptoms of cannabis addiction can vary, but common signs include an increasing need to use cannabis to achieve the desired effect, unsuccessful attempts to quit or cut down on use, spending a significant amount of time obtaining or using cannabis, neglecting responsibilities or interests due to cannabis use, and continued use despite negative consequences.

Health Consequences: While cannabis addiction may not have the same level of physical health risks as other substances, it can still have negative effects on mental health, cognitive function, and overall well-being. Heavy or prolonged cannabis use has been associated with an increased risk of mental health disorders, such as anxiety and depression, as well as memory and concentration impairments.

Withdrawal: When individuals with cannabis addiction attempt to stop or reduce their cannabis use, they may experience withdrawal symptoms. These can include irritability, anxiety, insomnia, decreased appetite, restlessness, and mood swings. While cannabis withdrawal symptoms are generally less severe compared to other substances, they can still be distressing for some individuals.
