A new study published in the Lancet Psychiatry this week suggests that today’s marijuana and the many different strains of today’s marijuana pose much more of an addiction risk than the marijuana from the past.
Now strains are being sold with total THC as high as 30%, meaning there are 300 milligrams of THC per gram after the product is heated. In the 70’s, it registered according to publicly available information at about 2% in total.
Last year alone in places like Europe government watchdogs logged a 76% increase in people going to a medical facility for addiction treatment related to marijuana use.
