While each person’s marijuana withdrawal period will vary based upon the scope and duration of abuse, some of the more common symptoms include trouble sleeping, irritability, loss of focus, anxiety, headaches, cravings, sweating, chills and depressed feeling. If these symptoms have escalated to the point at which they’ve disrupted your life and have made it hard for you to stop using marijuana, you may need professional help.

Marijuana withdrawal symptoms typically start about 24 hours after the last cycle of use. Early stages of withdrawal include difficulty sleeping, anxiety and irritability, anxiety and the inability to focus. These symptoms may last for as long as two days, depending upon the level of abuse that has taken place.
