Cannabis Health & Safety

Is cannabis addictive?

It can be. Some people are more prone to becoming addicted than others, and studies suggest that using cannabis in youth increases the risk of addiction.

Approximately one in 10 adults who have ever consumed cannabis will develop an addiction, also known as “cannabis-use disorder.” The early onset of use, long-term use and combining cannabis with tobacco increase the potential of addiction and other health risks. Initiation of use in adolescence increases risk of developing cannabis use disorder to one in six.
