1 day detox programIf you have been using marijuana for some time, you should know that it takes a lot of time and efforts to get the toxin out of your system. Marijuana could stay in your system for weeks, months or even years if you are a regular user. When you make a decision to get rid of your addiction and become sober again, you will have to overcome your THC detox effects.

Detoxing can happen during the first few days or weeks after you decide to get clean and sober. When you want to get marijuana out of your system, you have to be willing to undergo possible withdrawal symptoms. Some people have to go through a difficult period of dealing with physical withdrawal symptoms when they stop taking marijuana. There is no way to be sure if you will suffer from withdrawal symptoms or not, but it is best to equip yourself with enough knowledge before attempting to quit this dangerous addiction.

The most common effect of marijuana detoxing is insomnia. You may experience insomnia for a few nights, or even few months. Some people may be able to get some sleep, while others cannot get any sleep at all. The second withdrawal symptom is depression. Next, you may have vivid dreams and nightmares. The dreams may be very emotional and scary with vivid images, and you may wake up in the middle of the dream only to come back at it when you fall asleep again. Dreaming is a very common symptom that most people experience when they quit marijuana, sometimes, the dreams will last for years.

Another common type of withdrawal symptom is anger. Anger can take the form of a burning rage to daily frustration and sudden burst of anger out of the blue. Patients may also experience a fluctuation in their sex drive, a loss of sense of humor, and feeling of fear and anxiety. Most of these symptoms will go away after three months or so, but if they continue for longer, you should consider seeing a doctor.

Since the THC chemical agent in marijuana will be stored in the fat cells of the patient, it will take a lot longer to get rid of marijuana than any other drugs including alcohol.
