In the context of addiction, both opponents and proponents of medical marijuana have numerous studies to support their arguments. However, one distinction is usually agreed upon. If dependency occurs, it is an addiction in psychological terms rather than in the physical realm, as is the case with many other substances such as tobacco, alcohol, and heroin.
Switching from a cannabis chemotype III (abundant in THC) to a chemotype II (with relative equal amounts of THC and CBD) or to a chemotype I (containing primarily CBD) have shown to mitigate symptoms of cannabis dependence.
