Many people mistakenly believe that there are no symptoms associated with stopping marijuana use. While this may be true for a person that rarely consumes cannabis, heavy users do tend to experience withdrawal symptoms. Over 50 percent of heavy cannabis users enrolled in treatment programs report having withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms include:
- Sleep disturbance
- Decreased appetite
- Depressed mood
- Abdominal pain
The greater the usage and the greater the withdrawal symptoms tend to be. The symptoms typically begin within the first 24 to 72 hours and can
last for several weeks.
