WHAT IS MARIJUANA?

Marijuana is a psychoactive drug derived from the cannabis plant. Recreational use of marijuana can produce lightheaded feedings, feelings of relaxation and lower blood pressure. The main active ingredient in marijuana is delta-9-tetrahhdrocannabinol (THC). THC is found in the resin produced by the leaves and buds primarily of the female cannabis plant.

IS MARIJUANA ADDICTIVE?

There has been some debate as to whether Marijuana is addictive. At Bayside Private Care, with many years of experience dealing with clients that have a problem with Marijuana, we believe that it is addictive, and users find they encounter many problems trying to kick the habit.
