Cannabis Rehabilitation

The Haven runs a successful Marijuana rehab programme

Marijuana is one of the most commonly abused drugs in South Africa. Users may also experience pleasant sensations, colours and sounds, or sleepiness and/or depression. Users can also experience anxiety, fear, panic and distrust.

Marijuana is made from the shredded and dried parts of the cannabis plant, including the flowers, seeds, leaves, and stems. It’s also known as dagga, pot, weed, hash. While many people smoke marijuana, it can also be consumed as an ingredient in food,tea, or oils.

The method the drug is introduced may affect your body differently. inhalation allows the drug to be quickly released into your bloodstream it then makes its way to your brain and other organs. It takes a longer to feel the effects if you eat or drink marijuana.

Some of the negative effects of marijuana use are:
Distorted perception (sights, sounds, time, touch)
Problems with memory and learning
Loss of coordination
Trouble with thinking and problem-solving
Increased heart rate
Increased anxiety, fear, distrust, or panic.

Long-term use of marijuana can lead to respiratory problems, similar to those of tobacco smokers, including cancer of the respiratory tract and lungs. Marijuana smoke contains 50 to 70 percent more carcinogenic hydrocarbons than tobacco smoke.
