What Are The Symptoms And Signs of Marijuana Use?

Long-Term and Short-Term Signs

The answer to this question falls into two different categories, long and short-term.

Short-Term Signs of Marijuana Use

In the short term, the question relates to how you can identify if someone is loaded on marijuana. There are certain classic giveaways such as red eyes and the smell of marijuana. The latter is often substituted for the smell of breath freshener if the person feels that they need to conceal their marijuana use.

Other less obvious giveaways can include a slowed-down and overly sensate affect, a strange and inappropriate sense of appreciation and wonder for totally mundane things, sudden flashes of esoteric insight into connections between seemingly unrelated events, and an intensely poetic depth of understanding of certain words and phrases.

Long-Term Signs of Marijuana Use

The symptoms and signs of long-term marijuana use vary greatly depending on the person’s physiology and psychology, the ways that they’ve used marijuana and how long they’ve used it for. For specific details on long-term marijuana affect, please refer to the symptoms and signs of marijuana use and marijuana syndromes articles on this website.

Going Beyond Stereotypes

Whatever your beliefs are about ‘the kind of people who take marijuana,’ it’s a good idea to let them go right now. There are people who are deeply involved with marijuana at every level of the social spectrum. There are no racial, economic, social, religious or political boundaries in this game. If you have any preconceptions, reservations, judgments or biases around people who take marijuana, it will harm your ability to diagnose and treat them with accuracy.

Balancing Marijuana With Accuracy

Each marijuana syndrome identifies very accurately exactly where a person is in her/his dance with marijuana. Once you know this code, then you can learn exactly what to do to balance it.

If you want to know the real symptoms and signs of marijuana use, then dive in to studying marijuana syndromes. They contain a treasure trove of information on the psychophysiological terrain of human beings and their relationship with marijuana.
