Is medicinal cannabis addictive?
Medicinal cannabis is usually prescribed in low doses, which greatly reduces the chance of people becoming addicted to cannabis. Furthermore, medicinal cannabis is prescribed by a doctor or specialist who is closely involved in the patient’s health issues.
There is a chance of addiction if cannabis is taken in high (or higher) doses. Patients who abruptly stop using cannabis may suffer withdrawal symptoms such as restlessness, irritability, insomnia and nausea.
