Marijuana Withdrawal Symptoms

Marijuana withdrawal symptoms can occur when a person stops using marijuana. Though symptoms of marijuana withdrawal vary from person to person, they typically start within the first 24 to 72 hours after cessation of use and usually peak within the first week.

While the withdrawal symptoms are generally not life-threatening, they can be uncomfortable and make it difficult for individuals to stay abstinent. It’s essential for individuals seeking to quit marijuana use to have a supportive and understanding environment during the withdrawal process. Marijuana addiction treatment can make a difference for individuals working toward recovery.

THC Withdrawal and Withdrawal Symptoms

Marijuana use disorder is often associated with dependence rather than addiction. Individuals who frequently use marijuana may develop a tolerance and need more of the drug to achieve the same effects, which is how dependence occurs. Those frequently using marijuana may experience a variety of withdrawal symptoms when trying to quit, including:

  • Irritability
  • Moodiness
  • Sleeping difficulties
  • Decreased or increased appetite
  • Cravings
  • Restlessness

Long-term use and withdrawal from marijuana can also be related to mental health concerns, such as:

  • Temporary hallucinations
  • Temporary paranoia
  • Worsening symptoms in patients with schizophrenia

It’s worth noting that while marijuana withdrawal symptoms may be uncomfortable, they are not life-threatening. However, seeking support and guidance during this time can be incredibly helpful in managing symptoms and preventing relapse. At Woodland Recovery, we offer a variety of programs and therapies to support clients on their recovery journey, including group therapy, motivational enhancement therapy, and medication-assisted treatment.

How Long Do Weed Withdrawal Symptoms Last

One common question we receive is: how long do weed withdrawal symptoms last? It’s important to note that everyone’s experience with withdrawal will differ, as a person’s biology and history with substance use will play a role. However, there are some general facts and trends to keep in mind.

Firstly, many people who use marijuana do not experience withdrawal symptoms at all. However, for those who do, symptoms can start as early as a few hours after last use and can last for up to two weeks. Common symptoms include irritability, insomnia, decreased appetite, anxiety, and depression. Physical symptoms such as headaches, sweating, and tremors may also occur.
