REMISSION/RECOVERY FROM CANNABIS USE DISORDERS: UPDATE

  1. Full remission from cannabis-related problems is possible and probable (67-90% rates in short-term and lifetime rates).
  2. CUD remission rates are similar for men and women, but women experience a more rapid onset and stabilization of remission than men.
  3. Remission takes time‚Äďan average of 32.5 months from CUD onset to one year of remission.
  4. CUD remission styles vary, with some people with CUDs achieving remission through deceleration of the frequency and intensity of cannabis use rather than through total abstinence.
  5. Abstinence styles of CUD remission are more likely to produce greater enhancements in global functioning than non-abstinent remission patterns.
  6. CUD remission can be fragile during its early stages but strengthens over time, suggesting the need for assertive and continuous management, particularly during the first months and years of remission
