All they want to have is a good time or a cure
for whatever illness, regardless of what they
have to do to get it. It is best when using
marijuana to treat it like a drug which has side
effects psychological and physical. If you do so
and control your use, you will be safe for a very
long time. Short term side effects of marijuana
include Some side effects of using and
overdosing on marijuana could be temporary and
short, but they trigger long term side effect
which could be dangerous to the user if not
checked immediately. These symptoms
include Depression. This could be an issue for
those using marijuana for PTSD and other
depression related disorders. Marijuana works in
a very funny way. It can be used to treat
depression, if only it is used in a controlled
and supervised manner. But if abused, it could
lead the patient into deep depression. Sensory
distortion sensory distortion can be an easy
side effect, affecting marijuana users. This
could lead to the brain rearranging and
interpreting visuals, thoughts or noise
differently. Anxiety and panic attacks. Panic and
anxiety attacks could be experienced when a user
gets too excited and uses more than he can
control naturally.

Long term side effects of marijuana Most short
term effects of marijuana leads to long term
effects. These effects could lead to severe
damage of organs in the body and worst case
scenario, death. These long term effects
include Suppressed immune system The immune
system is wired in a way to prevent the body from
falling ill at exposure to pathogens. When this
is compromised, the immune system becomes dormant
and this is what marijuana use could lead to.
Once noticed, this should be dealt with
immediately. Growth disorders this usually
happens to teenagers who use marijuana. At this
point they are growing and need all to ensure
this is successful. Marijuana could impede
growth, leading to growth disorders. Reduction
of the male sex hormones and sexual capacity
Testosterone the male sex hormone production can
be reduced when marijuana is abused. Learning
disabilities The psychoactive nature of
marijuana can lead to a slower learning process
because it might take a longer time for the brain
to process new things. Lack of motivation
marijuana is known to cause body weakness this
eventually leads to lack of motivation. It is
best to use marijuana when users have nothing
much to do and needs to relax.

Swift mood changes Happy-sad-happy
again-sad-angry can be the mood swing pattern of
a marijuana user and it could happen in a very
swift manner. This could be avoided if marijuana
use is controlled. Lung issues This is the
number one issue health practitionershave with
marijuana when smoked anyway. Though lung issues
due to marijuana smoking is not as prevalent as
it is for tobacco smoker, but it happens. To
prevent this, a user can change the method of use
to ingestion. Marijuana can be a source of
healing and pleasure only if used in a controlled
manner to prevent the side effects associated
with it. Users should be careful to know when
they have overstepped their boundaries when it
comes to marijuana use and retrace their steps to
a to a healthy marijuana lifestyle.
