Addiction levels likely about the same or worse
by: Debbie Wicker

Dear Karen,

Research has shown that marijuana is harmful and addictive for some people. Each of us is created uniquely and are brain chemistry and function is also completely unique to us. Marijuana is addictive for some of us and not addictive for others of us, just like every other harmful drug including alcohol.

Marijuana is estimated to have up to 400 different drugs in it. How our brain with respond and react to each of those drugs is unknown and unique to each of us.

I wasn't able to find any specific research on addiction rates of vaping marijuana, but I was able to find an excellent blog from SAMHSA, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.

Their research has shown that any marijuana use has these health risks:

"Health risks associated with youth marijuana use include poorer education/employment outcomes, cognitive problems, increased likelihood of vehicle crashes, and increased addiction risk."

Vaping appears to increase those risks:

"The Drug Enforcement Agency describes marijuana concentrate as a substance containing highly potent THC (tetrahydrocannabinol, the psychoactive component of marijuana). This concentrate is often referred to as oil or "710" ("OIL" spelled upside down and backwards). THC levels in this oil could range from 40 to 80 percent, which is about four times stronger than what is found in a "high grade" marijuana plant."

The bottom line is vaping marijuana appears to be more addictive and more dangerous to your health because of the increased concentration of THC and the other drugs involved.

Hope that answers your question:)
