Misconceptions About THC and Addiction.
Benefits Of Private Detox.
The main chemical in marijuana which alters brain function is known as delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol or THC for short. If you smoke cannabis, THC is absorbed quickly into your blood and carried to the brain, where it acts on cannabinoid receptors. The highest density of these receptors is in the parts of the brain influencing pleasure, memory, thoughts, sensory perception and coordination, which leads to the high and feelings of relaxation and euphoria common amongst users of cannabis.
In addition to this, if you have been addicted to cannabis for a long time, your withdrawal symptoms could be particularly severe or uncomfortable. This can be difficult to manage alone and a medical detox at Primrose Lodge means you will be in a supportive environment where we will make you as comfortable as possible.
