UK: What is the long-term effect of cannabis?



---
It helped her relax for a decade, but five years after kicking the habit
she suffers sleepless nights and anxiety. Is the weed coming back to
haunt her? Three experts have their say

For about 10 years I smoked cannabis regularly if not excessively. In
the evenings I'd get home from work and have a joint to unwind, and I
smoked about the same amount at weekends. I used it to help me relax and
sleep better. About five years ago I stopped doing it - I just got out
of the habit. Now I keep reading about the effect that strong grass like
skunk can have on mental health and all the reports have got me worried
about the long-term health implications of dope. I'm a 39-year-old woman
and recently have had quite unpleasant bouts of anxiety and insomnia -
might this be caused by my smoking? Can you have a delayed reaction, and
are there any other long-term effects?

The psychiatrist: Robin Murray

The risk of smoking cannabis is a bit similar to that of drinking
alcohol. Most people who drink alcohol, and most people who smoke
cannabis, don't come to any harm. However, just as drinking a bottle of
whisky a day is more of a hazard to your health than drinking a pint of
lager, so skunk is more hazardous than traditional forms of cannabis,
such as herb or resin, because it may contain three times as much of the
active ingredient tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

The adverse effects of cannabis use are different to those you describe.
They usually start with either memory difficulties or paranoid and
suspicious ideas, and can progress to psychotic symptoms such as
hallucinations and delusions. These symptoms usually come on while the
individual is still smoking, and there is no good evidence that smoking
cannabis can cause either anxiety or insomnia.

· Professor Robin Murray works at the Institute of Psychiatry

The nurse: Chris Hudson

It's unlikely that there's a direct link between your concerns and your
history of smoking cannabis. While some insomnia and anxiety may be a
common experience for those who have recently given up using the drug,
there's little evidence to suggest these symptoms continue after the
body has eliminated it from the system - which is between four to six
weeks in the case of cannabis. Your complaints could be caused by
stress, side-effects from prescription drugs, alcohol use or exposure to
allergens.

Recent reports on the damage to lungs caused by smoking cannabis - that
one joint can be equal to five cigarettes - are probably true, though
it's not helpful to get hung up on numbers. The good news is that even
after five years, your lungs and other organs have made much progress in
repairing damaged tissue. Your GP will be able to recommend strategies
for managing the anxiety and insomnia.

· Chris Hudson is a nurse and operations manager at Respond, the drug
treatment centre

The consultant: Dr Ken Checinski

Evidence suggests a delayed reaction is unlikely. However, cannabis -
especially skunk - can lead to acute and severe psychotic episodes
(including believing strange, often fearful things and seeing or hearing
things that aren't there), or trigger an underlying vulnerability to
mental illness, most typically in cases of schizophrenia.

When long-term users stop taking a drug, it's quite common to replace it
with something else. Are you substituting cannabis with alcohol or other
drugs? Substances like these may mask underlying problems such as
depression or anxiety.

Your symptoms may be a response to everyday stresses and are likely to
get better on their own or respond to psychological treatments available
through your GP. Don't self-medicate and resist any temptation to start
using cannabis again in order to relax.
