Young people are more likely to develop an addiction among cannabis users. Studies show the importance of understanding cannabis use in adolescents as their brains are still developing.

Other factors that increase the likelihood of developing marijuana addiction include whether people can cope with mental illnesses such as depression and anxiety, as well as the influence of genetics.

It can be difficult to spot symptoms of cannabis withdrawal, although some include irritability, nervousness, aggression, insomnia, and headaches. People who are addicted to cannabis may have similar experiences to those who are addicted to cigarettes, fidgeting or having to increase their dose over time to have the same experiences they had before.

As with all addictions, it is entirely possible that a person has a problem when dealing with family members or putting themselves in dangerous situations because of cannabis.

To manage this condition, it is important to stop using it for a period of time and monitor the body’s response. If you can’t get through a week or two without cannabis, professional help from a psychologist or psychiatrist may be appropriate.

Common treatments include the use of cognitive behavioral therapy, which is seen as the first resource in treating various addictions.
