Cannabis is usually smoked, either in cigarette form or using a pipe. It can also be consumed orally, either by brewing it in tea or by cooking it in food. Understanding the different methods of consumption can be essential in creating a tailored cannabis addiction treatment plan.
Cannabis contains the active ingredient THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), a chemical similar to one produced naturally by the brain. The substance interacts with brain regions responsible for various functions, emphasizing the need for a well-rounded approach during cannabis rehab.
THC affects the areas of the brain that influence pleasure, memory, movement, concentration, and coordination. It can also have an effect on the functioning of the nervous system, which can be monitored and managed effectively during a cannabis detox process.
