Cannabis withdrawal symptoms

Are the cannabis withdrawal symptoms severe?
No, but...

Increased tolerance to marijuana may increase the severity of the thc withdraw. The basic cannabis withdrawal symptoms are decreased appetite, irritability, anxiety, nervousness, and may even cause temporary sleeping problems.

In most cases of marijuana withdrawal, the symptoms kick in within a few hours after your high. For those who are heavy users, or those of whom that are more tolerant to marijuana, these symptoms may last up to two or three days, maybe even a couple weeks depending on the personality.

The hardest part about quitting marijuana is to forget how good you think it is, or how bad you think you need it.

Once you kicked the craving, you have gotten over the worse part, which normally happens fast. Marijuana soon becomes a thing of the past.

If you compare a withdrawal from marijuana abuse to an alcohol abuse, or even prescription drug abuse, you can safely conclude that the marijuana withdrawal symptoms are much less severe, almost to a point of non existence.

It is said that the marijuana withdrawal symptoms are comparable to that of cigarettes.
