What Are
The Marijuana Syndromes?



Searching For Patterns

Physicians and health care workers think and diagnose in patterns. No person will exactly fit any of these patterns, yet they are useful and essential as clinical guidelines.

Each marijuana syndrome is a unique and unmistakable pattern with very specific qualities and characteristics.



Non-Linear Maps Of Processes

The marijuana syndromes are maps of the processes that can happen anywhere in the spectrum from first-time use to long-term, repeated marijuana use and abuse.

The marijuana syndromes represent very large and expanded processes. The deeper levels of these processes normally take a very long time to play out, if they play out at all. They are patterns of clinical probabilities.



Vital Clues

The presence of marijuana in conjunction with these specific symptoms and signs is what qualifies them as marijuana syndromes.

The quality of information contained within each syndrome gives us vital clues to where the marijuana is acting in a person’s mind, body and soul.

Once we know that information, we can use it to bring her/him into a state of optimal balance. That point of balance is the place where s/he can access and activate optimal potential for healing and growth.
