Eliminating The Effects Of Synthetic Cannabis From The Body?
Hello. One month ago I used synthetic marijuana, I already used synthetic marijuana from the end of October. But for the beginning of December I stopped because I felt that my body was easily fatigued, fast heartbeat, sometimes irregular, paranoid, restless, anxious, dizzy, and painful in the joints. What do I have to do to restore my condition to normal? Thanks.
Hello Fauzi Maulana,
Synthetic cannabinoid is a substance that is made can occupy the same cannabinoid receptors in the body as cannabis / cannabis. Therefore synthetic cannabis can have the same effect as cannabis when used. Synthetic cannabis is commonly found because it is difficult to get cannabis from plants.
Marijuana abuse aims to obtain a psychoactive effect arising from the content of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in cannabis. Marijuana overdoses are rare, but overdoses to death can occur with synthetic marijuana. Some negative effects arising from the use of synthetic marijuana include:
Nausea and vomiting
Impaired body coordination
Heart disorders: heart rate is fast or becomes slow
Decreased consciousness to coma
Abuse of synthetic cannabis can also cause addiction (dependence) and dose tolerance, so a person will tend to increase the amount of consumption to get the same pleasure. As a result, the danger of overdose will be higher.
When someone who has an addiction to a substance and stops suddenly, a withdrawal reaction can occur in the form of:
Tremors, especially hands
Patients who experience drug withdrawal reactions will definitely think of using these drugs again. Symptoms of withdrawal from this drug can last up to 2-3 weeks after the cessation of synthetic cannabis. However, drug craving can still last longer than that. There is no specific therapy that has become part of synthetic marijuana addiction therapy. The desire to re-use drugs (drug craving) can be treated with a combination of behavioral cognitive therapy and treatments such as benzodiazepines or quetiapine showing the benefits of overcoming drug withdrawal symptoms due to synthetic cannabis.
Consult further about this problem with a psychiatrist so you can get appropriate treatment. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
