Skunk Cannabis – UK Parents Concerned As Super Strength Weed Addicts More British Teenagers

Skunk Cannabis – It is here and it is making its presence felt across the spectrum of society. Poor or wealthy, educated or illiterate, working class mum or high society darling – there is no hiding place from this high power version of the ‘fun relaxation’ drug we all once knew as marijuana THC gummies for sale. In my practice as a Cannabis Cessation Specialist I witness the unpleasant side of Skunk on a daily basis – and the trend looks set to continue. So what can you do as a concerned parent when you discover that one of your offspring has begun an association with Skunk?

Don’t Panic – The natural parental reaction can be loosely classified as ‘panic’. It can take several forms (outrage, despair, anger and then swiftly lead to inappropriate action (confrontation, blame, punishment). You need a plan – as the parent you are beginning a journey (albeit not one of your choosing) and if you want to get to the destination quickly, painlessly and with all the passengers safe and well, then you’d better get the map out before you start driving.

You are the Adult – Yes your son may well have stubble on his chin, and your daughter is probably 3″ taller than you now she is 19 years old, but during this whole journey on which you have unwillingly embarked you must never forget that they are just kids. Of course they are disappointing you at this moment in life, and it hurts like crazy that they have made a terrible error of judgement despite the two decades you have spent nurturing them, however you have to act as an adult consistently throughout. There will be times when you’ll feel a tremendous urge to blow your top, the temptation to scream and punch the wall will be extreme, but fight it every step of the way whilst the source of the frustration is within earshot.

Plan Intelligently – Setting goals and benchmarks is crucial in the initial stages of any cannabis based family trauma. In simplistic terms these can be classified as; ‘Where are we now’ ‘Where do we want to be’ and ‘What are we going to do to get there’. This is not a time for unrealistic expectations or delusions regarding the seriousness of the situation. Unfortunately 95% of families will fail to structure their approach and therefore are doomed to dramatically increase the length of time that it takes to reach a suitable solution, and greatly intensify the collective pain felt during the process.
