Is Hash Addiction Treatment Required?

Hashish is derived from the flowers, stems or leaves of the cannabis plant. Hash and marijuana share a common active ingredient, delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). The concentration of THC in marijuana lies between 1%-5%, whereas hashish consists of 5%-15%. Hash oil has a 20% concentration of THC, making it the most concentrated form of hash per the drug enforcement administrations.

THC binds to the cannabinoid receptors, evoking a feeling of wee-being, sedation and euphoria. As a result, individuals get hooked on hash for the "feel-good" factor and, with prolonged use, develop an addiction. Hash addiction treatment becomes necessary for individuals to break the shackles of addiction and stop further deterioration of one’s body and mind.

Individuals often argue that "hash was addictive, it would not have been legalised in some states, hash has no side effects compared to alcohol or other drugs, etc.". Continue reading as we attempt to bust all the misconceptions surrounding hashish.

Is Hash more Addictive than Weed?

Hash and weed are derived from the cannabis plant and trigger a similar effect of euphoria, increased appetite and relaxation. Both are classified as illegal drugs by federal law, despite some states. This commonly makes individuals question the difference between the potencies of hash and weed. Let's briefly break down where these similarities end:

  • Hash and weed are prepared differently; the former requires more steps in production than the latter.
  • Both have different tastes. Hash has a complex, rich and spicy flavour compared to the fresh and herbal flavour of weed. Hash's flavour also depends on its method of production.
  • The difference in potencies - hash is more potent due to its higher concentration of THC.
  • Hash is vaporised, ingested orally in edibles, or smoked, whereas the use of weed is flexible.

Regardless of the drug, developing a cannabis use disorder is possible; an individual needs to seek a rehabilitation centre’s help if they fall prey to any addiction or dependency.

Is Hash Addictive?

The national institute of drug abuse and the American psychiatric association now consider cannabis products potent to result in substance use disorder. The American psychiatric association lists the criteria for cannabis use disorder example, hashish use disorder, as:

  • Unsuccessful attempts to cut back or control hashish use.
  • Financial issues due to purchasing hash or other hash-related reasons.
  • Facing problems at personal and professional ends due to hashish.
  • Facing mental health issues due to hashish use.
  • Uncontrollable hashish cravings
  • Continued hash use despite negative ramifications
  • Getting defensive or angry when hashish use is pointed out
  • Developing tolerance
  • Experiencing withdrawal symptoms on abstaining or reducing hashish intake 

Hashish withdrawal symptoms include: 

  • Irritability
  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety
  • Disturbing dreams
  • Cravings
  • Loss of appetite/weight loss

The withdrawal symptoms of hashish are not considered physically damaging but have distressing psychological symptoms that can give rise to relapse. Nasha Mukti Kendra offers psychotherapy to help manage this psychological distress and prevent relapse.
