Find Addiction Rehabs Post Article On Getting Cross Faded
Boca Raton, Florida -
The team at Find Addiction Rehabs recently released a new blog post about the growing trend of getting “cross faded”, which generally means mixing a combination of substances in order to experience a more intense high. This is most commonly done by mixing cannabis and alcohol, which can enhance the effects of both drugs and increase a person’s level of intoxication, leading to a heightened feeling of freedom and loss of inhibitions that a person might obtain from alcohol or weed alone. The article from Find Addiction Rehabs details the risks inherent in getting cross faded through an in depth explanation of the effects of both alcohol and cannabis and how they can work together to affect the body in a variety of ways. The post also discusses what might indicate a need for therapy or rehab treatment for their alcohol or cannabis use.
Along with alcohol, marijuana and related cannabis products are fast becoming legalized across the US. This means that cannabis products are in the hands of more and more people each year, and in some cases could lead to them mixing alcohol and cannabis even when they’ve been obtained legally. Some people, of course, might be wondering: can marijuana be addictive? Alcohol acts on the body by depressing the central nervous system and can cause very significant health effects when used excessively over a long period of time. Ongoing abusive alcohol use can make it harder for someone to maintain control over their motor skills, memory, speech, and judgment abilities. Many people who struggle with abusing alcohol find it hard to maintain relationships and keep up with responsibilities, and continued impairment can lead to more frequent injuries and accidents.
Cannabis is a psychoactive substance that acts on the cannabinoid receptors in the brain. Using too much cannabis can overstimulate the body’s cannabinoid receptors, causing a number of extremely uncomfortable effects. These can include extreme anxiety, dizziness or disorientation, poor coordination, shaking and chills, sweating, dilated pupils, racing heartbeat, trouble breathing, an upset stomach, or nausea and vomiting. Fortunately, when using cannabis alone, these effects are incredibly unlikely to be fatal, and usually fade with a combination of rest, water, and time. Using cannabis and alcohol together will enhance these effects and make it significantly more likely that a person experiences the unpleasant symptoms of having too much of one substance or both. For example, the presence of even a small amount of alcohol will elevate the THC levels in the bloodstream, causing a much more intense high.
Most people who try to get cross faded do it because they are interested in the desirable effects of mixing alcohol and cannabis. For example, some people can have feelings of euphoria, relaxation, spiritual enlightenment, or increased sociability. With too much alcohol and THC, however, being cross-faded can become an uncomfortable or even dangerous experience. Some people, for example, experience increased anxiety, paranoia, or even psychosis while cross faded. Physical consequences can also occur, such as nausea and vomiting, dizziness, and an abnormal heart rate. Because both cannabis and alcohol tend to loosen inhibitions, people who are cross faded can end up consuming way more alcohol and cannabis than they might have otherwise. If someone is combining alcohol and cannabis too often, they might be addicted to getting cross faded, which is where an organization like Find Addiction Rehabs can help.
