Things To Avoid



  • Avoid using cannabis regularly at an early age. Human brains are not fully developed until a person reaches their mid-20s, so cannabis can impact the growing brain, and this may be associated with longer-term negative consequences.


  • Avoid using cannabis daily or almost daily. Regular habitual use can lead to dependence, meaning you feel you need to use it just to feel normal.


  • Avoid using cannabis as your main way of having fun or coping with stress. It is beneficial to explore other ways to enjoy yourself or deal with negative moods, such as going for a walk, playing a sport, spending time with friends, participating in cultural activities and relaxation practices such as yoga and meditation.


  • Avoid using cannabis with alcohol or other drugs. The effects of cannabis are intensified and may last longer than expected or wanted if you drink alcohol or use other drugs at the same time.
