Marijuana Withdrawals and How To Cope

Can You Suffer from Marijuana Withdrawals?

Even though Cannabis is illegal on the federal level, it doesn’t mean it’s not used often. Marijuana is used for recreational fun and even medicinally. Actually, up until 1937 before America enacted the Marihuana Tax Act of 1937, it was legal for everyone to experiment with it. Before that time, it was simply a plant being grown and no attention was really paid to it. Until America’s “who’s who” found a way to have the government stop its citizens from using it so they can profit off other endeavors. The government started spreading false lies saying that entertainers, which consisted mainly of African-Americans and Latinos, were smoking pot and raping white women. (Learn about Refer Madness here.) This worked to scare people away and paved the way for more propaganda and lies for the following 80 years.

The truth is, medical marijuana has untold uses. Hemp is a strong tool that can be used for foods, crafts and ropes. Marijuana can be used to help sick patients with cancer and other serious illnesses. Upon making it illegal, the government and big corporations (including Big Pharma) could now benefit and profit from people who are caught using marijuana while the pharmaceutical companies line the politicians’ pockets.

However, with all the talk on the benefits of marijuana, there are also a few drawbacks. With daily pot usage, comes some minor and minimal effects. For a lack of better words, we will call them marijuana withdrawals. The withdrawals are not what you’re used to, which is why “withdrawals” is not the perfect word. You don’t go into cold sweats and get nauseous. Rather, the marijuana withdrawals are very small and only last a day or two.

Bud Says: There are a few herbs to help you quit if you are looking to stop altogether.

Lack of Sleep – You will notice, the first day you don’t smoke weed, it will be hard to sleep. Your body is not relaxed like it is used to so you’re generally up longer with a ton of thoughts running through your mind constantly while you try to sleep. A nice warm chamomile tea right before bed might help with this.

Lack of Appetite – The one marijuana withdrawal people find when quitting is that they’re not that hungry the next day. This is common and usually lasts only until dinner time. A good way to combat this is to exercise during the day. Not only will it make you hungry enough to eat a good amount, but it will also get you tired enough to sleep more quickly.

Anger – Some people have said that, after smoking marijuana every day for a long time, they tend to get aggressive for the first couple days when they stop. This marijuana withdrawal could be because you’re not as relaxed as you were previously or because you’re less mindful of what’s going on. Either way, meditation is a wonderful way to help with this. Meditation helps you become more mindful, but relaxes you at the same time. It’s good to meditate right after waking up and/or just before sleeping.

Marijuana is nothing like the lies would have you believe, but there are some minor withdrawals that can linger for a couple days after you stop using it daily. Use the tips provided above to make things easier for you if and when you ever decide to quit or take a break.
