Some facts about marijuana you might want to be aware of, for starters it causes a reaction in the amygdala
which ends up releasing half a dozen stress
hormones in your hippocampus- this effects your short term memory, and can cause anxiety/paranoia
. Luckily if you have a damaged hippocampus (from excessive stress) this is actually the process of neurogenesis at work. No pain no gain eh.
Secondly- since you most likely get your pot from a illegal dealer, the strain of marijuana you get is often going to change over time. The different mix of cannabinoids inherent to each strain will naturally effect you differently. Sativa is known to cause anxiety while Indica strains relax and soothe for example.
Lastly you might need some therapy- but be warned atleast in the US tens
of billions of dollars are handed out annually to rehabs/hospitals/therapists treating "marijuana addiction" If the first question you ask a prospective psychologist/psychiatrist
is if you should stop marijuana- an they say something like "yes" or "in time" they might be on the take putting their wallet before your health. A responsible and true example of doctor would want to know how it is actually effecting you. Self medication
is fine- if it is warranted and marijuana is often safer, and even cheaper (if you can believe that) than the alternatives. Plus there is a wide list of preventive effects concerning several major prevalent health problems.
