Hello there,

Thanks for writing in.

For a person who is regularly using ganja, abrupt withdrawal can result in withdrawal symptoms like insomnia, sweating, depression, anxiety attacks etc.

Marijuana does not have an alternative substance that can be taken during rehabilitation like many drugs. Hence it is best that the person wanting to de-addict himself from ganja, be taken to a rehabilitation centre under professional guidance.

Hope this helps.

If you don't have any further queries,kindly accept my answer. Any reviews are welcome.

Regards,
Dr. Divya Kuttikrishnan.
