What Happens To Your Body When You Quit Smoking Weed After Long Term Use, According To Science

Date:

What is classed as long-term marijuana use varies, but, generally, using weed daily or close to this would fall into the long-term use category. Speaking to Integris Health, Jedidiah Perdue, M.D. stated, “Generally speaking, heavy use refers to daily or near-daily use of cannabis at an amount sufficient to lead to intoxication.” Among those in this category, a report by Deborah S. Hasin, PhD., Tulshi D. Saha, PhD. and, Bradley T. Kerridge, PhD. published by JAMA Psychiatry in 2015 found that three in 10 people developed a marijuana use disorder.

Marijuana use disorder is when using marijuana becomes addictive to a person and they cannot stop, even if it is having a detrimental effect on their life. A key sign of this disorder is needing stronger marijuana to experience the “high” feeling experienced with weed in comparison to when a person first started using the drug. If you decide to stop using marijuana as a result of developing a marijuana use disorder, your body is highly likely to face some unpleasant symptoms as it gets used to being without the drug it has been dependent on.
