Good morning. Thank you for your inquiries.

For your information, cannabis addiction can be treated by various ways which includes psychological, emotional, pharmacological therapy that can be applied step by step.
Below are the withdrawal therapy that should be taken accordingly in order:

  • Rehabilitation programs and consultation
  • Psychological and behavioral therapy
  • Motivational enhancement therapy
  • Cannabinoid detoxification
  • Use of anti-depressants
  • Using synthetic THC (not recommended) for slowly withdrawal on cannabis
  • Other anti-anxiety or anti-stress medication
  • Cannabinoid antagonist medication
  • Family and friends, environmental support.

However, we strongly we suggest that you refer this to your nearest medical doctor regarding your friend’s addiction as they may require frequent medical and psychological montioring on cannabis withdrawal.
