Smokers often have their own little nickname for marijuana. For non-users,
it may sound weird but for them, it’s a not-so-secret code that makes it
easier to identify those who are just like them. Now, quitting marijuana
has no direct relation to euphemisms because smokers come up with their
own special words during their dependency – not while they’re trying to quit.
Instead of focusing on mere words though, it’s better to tackle two real
concerns – depersonalization and hair loss.
Uncovering the Issue of Depersonalization
Depersonalization is the feeling of being detached from your own physical
self and from everything that surrounds you.
People suffering from depersonalization feels like looking into a mirror where
they see their own body. They know that there are people around them and
that there are things happening in society, but they find it difficult to relate to such. They feel alone and locked in their own mind. To them, the world is a vague dream with insignificant meaning and living feels like continuously following a pre-programmed routine.
Tetrahydrocannabinol is the reason why marijuana keeps you high. It
attaches to your brain’s cannabinoid receptors, which are responsible for
proper thinking, memory, and keeping your focus. When THC attaches to
your cannabinoid receptors, it activates them and alters their normal
functioning – preventing them from perceiving reality, exaggerating facts
Depersonalization is one of marijuana’s withdrawal symptoms. Even without
smoking, a person’s mind may stay depersonalized because “constant
mental function overdrive” takes time to subside. That’s the reason why
someone who’ve quit may remain in a depersonalized state – but with
proper support and professional help, overcoming depersonalization is
Hair Health and Quitting Marijuana Smoking
Smoking weed is related to hair loss in the sense that the carcinogenic
substances decrease the rate of cell proliferation in hair follicles, suppress
appetite which can lead to malnourishment, and interrupt hormone function.
Yes, hormones actually facilitate hair growth.
Hair Loss is among the most discussed withdrawal symptoms and yes, it
may affect a person even months after puffing the last joint. This is because
the body needs enough time to stabilize its hormones, as well as to
normalize cell proliferation and tissue regeneration. Keeping yourself
hydrated and well-nourished will help hasten the process.
You’ll be glad to know that once you’ve managed to regain your health, your
hair will once again grow normally. In a matter of weeks, you’ll look like
yourself before you’ve had your first puff – and you will definitely feel proud of your accomplishment.
Some Important Things to Remember
The severity of marijuana’s effects depends on the ingredients used in
making a roll. There are those that contain amphetamine, heroin, and other
drugs. It should be obvious that the most dangerous rolls are the ones that
contain a wide array of substances in the greatest amounts possible. Don’t
forget that Cannabis alone can send your system into overdrive. Pairing it
with other substances can have irreversible effects – depersonalization and hair loss will seem like minor concerns.
