Marijuana detox symptoms are something people don’t really like to talk about very much. When I first started writing about withdrawal, it wasn’t a common topic but the response that I received in email and on my old blog showed me that I wasn’t alone.
So, what are those symptoms? Here are a my top 4 most common acute symptoms. And by acute, I mean the symptoms that appear most quickly, usually withing about 24 to 48 hours after you stop smoking weed. This isn’t a complete list, fewer people experience things like panic attacks from weed withdrawal.
1. You sweat madly.
That’s the first thing you’ll notice when you get through detox. You really won’t be able to stop sweating. I don’t just mean a regular hot-day type of sweating. I mean the wake-up-in-the-middle-of-the-night-all-soaked kind of sweating. I still remember when it first happened to me. Fortunately, I am clean now, but when I first got the sweats, I really thought there is something very wrong with me. Fortunately they always go away after a few days in most cases during the first phase of withdrawal.
2. Would you like to stay up all night?
Well, you will now. That’s one of the marijuana detox symptoms that almost everyone will suffer from. I mean, just think about it. Your body wants to smoke, your mind wants to smoke, but you force it on them and tell them that you won’t. I wouldn’t necessarily expect to sleep like a baby if I were you.

3. Marijuana Detox Symptoms are All About You, you, you.
Well, don’t feel too alarmed when you realize that you can’t stop thinking about yourself in this tough time. I mean, you’ll want to smoke and that’s all you’ll be able to think about. You’ll be concerned with how YOU feel, what YOU do and what YOU need to do to get through this. It might be that you’ll yell at someone for no reason only because you’ll be very upset. That’s perfectly normal. Just let them know beforehand that a thing like that might take place so that they are more prepared for it.
That’s another one of those marijuana detox symptoms that no one really likes or talks about much. You’ll probably get really introverted and won’t have a desire to talk to anyone at all. That will lead to loneliness and in some cases self pity or even depression. If you know yourself enough to know that you might have suicidal thoughts, then go and get some professional help. Otherwise, this will pass and you’ll be fine.
Those are the few marijuana detox symptoms I wanted to tell you about. They will all pass and you won’t remember them soon. For now, just hang in there.
