People often say the first time they get high from marijuana ... they love it.
But HLN’s Dr. Drew says "loving it” is a very different experience.
“It turns out, it activates a part of your brain that's associated with the love and nurturing experience. The receptors for anandamide where the cannabis binds, for some people, will trigger a severe addiction."
He adds, “When you come off of it, you can feel paranoid, irritable or can’t sleep."
In the video clip above, Dr. Drew explains what he does to get people through their withdrawal period and where to go to handle marijuana addiction.
