Cannabis can be enjoyed responsibly in moderation. Use a safe, regulated cannabis product and pace yourself. Frequent or long-term cannabis use can have consequences for brain health and your lifestyle.
Cannabis is now legal for recreational use in Canada, and available at select NSLC stores. Like alcohol, you might enjoy cannabis in a social, recreational setting. Cannabis also has medicinal uses when prescribed by a medical professional. However, cannabis is not without its risks. Cannabis users should buy from a government-regulated source and use in moderation. Frequent use can impact your brain development and harm your overall well-being.
Just like alcohol, many students overestimate how many of their peers use cannabis, or how often they use it. In an October 2018 study, nearly half of surveyed Acadia students had never used cannabis. The majority of Acadia students who did use cannabis were occasional users who used it about once a month or less.
