San Diego Marijuana Rehab
The National Institute on Drug Abuse has published that in 2017, about 1 in every 16 or close 6 percent of all high school seniors in the United States has reported being using a form of marijuana consistently nearly every day. The report also points out that among all high school seniors in the United States, the number of them who feel the use of marijuana is risky has been cut in half over the past twenty years. According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health that took place in 2013, there were 19.8 million, or nearly 81 percent of individuals who had reported to have used other illicit drugs in the United States, had also used marijuana in the month before being surveyed by the NSDUH.
Marijuana can be used in many different ways. Depending on the preference of the individual, you can smoke marijuana, inhale it in vapor-form, brew it and drink as a tea, apply it as a balm or skin lotion, or consume it orally through different foods such as brownies or chocolate bars. Some people choose to use medical marijuana to treat chronic pain, muscle spasms, anorexia, sleeping issues, and nausea.
Medical marijuana refers to either whole marijuana or its ingredients, such as cannabidiol (CBD), which has formed the base of a limited number of different medications that have been approved by the FDA. Medical marijuana is not subject to national standardization, making its ingredients and potency unknown. Seeing that positives and negatives are surrounding the subject of marijuana, the legalization of specific uses of the drug is legal in some states but remains illegal in most.
The question is, can this active use of marijuana cause addiction and is it even necessary to look into Healthy Life’s San Diego Marijuana rehab options?
