Discover how hypnosis can stop you smoking weed

With the continued legalisation of marijuana around parts of the world, more people are smoking weed than ever. However, while most medical experts consider marijuana to have mild effects compared to stronger drugs, it still possesses addictive qualities which affects millions of people around the world. It is estimated that three out of ten people who smoke weed, will become addicted and the long-term effects are still being studied.


The good news is that you can stop smoking weed if you use the right method for breaking your addiction. Over the years, few techniques have proven to be as effective as hypnosis for helping people gain control of their actions and get addictive substances such as weed out of their lives. As powerful as hypnosis is, it does take the willingness and drive for it to work.

How hypnosis works

You have seen the basis of how hypnosis treatments work throughout your lifetime thanks to hypnotists who practice their profession as entertainment. While the general principles are the same, the effect that hypnosis has on curbing addictions is remarkable as it addresses the core of why people become addicted to marijuana, alcohol, tobacco and hard drugs.

Addiction is both a physical and mental state which makes it very difficult for anyone to quit without assistance. While the physical addiction to substances can be ended relatively quickly, it is the mental aspect that is more difficult to overcome. This is where hypnosis comes in to break the mental addiction to substances and replaces them with good habits.

Hypnosis directly addresses the mental habits people form when becoming addicted to substances like marijuana. By breaking the habits through direct mental suggestion, the person gains control over their actions and takes measures to stay away from the addictive substance. In addition, hypnosis techniques can be taught to the patient so they can be used when needed to avoid tempting situations.

Why choose hypnosis to stop smoking weed

There are good reasons why hypnosis is the method of choice to end your addiction to weed. First, hypnosis has been proven to break addictions that come from many sources, including alcohol, smoking, hard drugs, and more. The same principles are used to end your addiction to marijuana in a safe, effective way.

Benefits include:

  • no drugs
  • addresses the source of the addiction
  • short treatment periods
