About Marijuana Addiction…

Marijuana is now legal in Canada and despite it’s many health and inflammatory reducing benefits – use can lead to the development of marijuana use disorder, which can take the form of addiction in some cases. Some reports suggest that 30 percent of those who use marijuana may have some degree of marijuana use disorder.

Marijuana use disorder is associated with dependence—in which a person feels withdrawal symptoms when not taking the drug. People who use marijuana frequently often report irritability, mood and sleep difficulties, decreased appetite, cravings, restlessness, and/or various forms of physical discomfort that peak within the first week after quitting and can last weeks for some. Marijuana dependence occurs when the brain adapts to large amounts of the drug by reducing production of and sensitivity to its own endocannabinoid neurotransmitters.

Marijuana use disorder becomes addiction when the person cannot stop using the drug even though it interferes with many aspects of his or her life.


Global News article regarding cannabis addiction:

About Drug Addiction…

Drug addiction, also called substance use disorder, is a disease that affects a person’s brain and behaviour and leads to an inability to control the use of a legal or illegal drug or medication. Substances such as marijuana and prescription or recreational drugs are considered drugs. When you’re addicted, you may continue using the drug despite the harm it causes.

Drug addiction can start with experimental use of a recreational drug in social situations, and, for some people, the drug use becomes more frequent. For others, particularly with opioids, drug addiction begins with exposure to prescribed medications, or receiving medications from a friend or relative who has been prescribed the medication.

The risk of addiction and how fast you become addicted varies by drug. Some drugs, such as opioid painkillers, have a higher risk and cause addiction more quickly than others.

As time passes, you may need larger doses of the drug to get high. Soon you may need the drug just to feel good. As your drug use increases, you may find that it’s increasingly difficult to go without the drug. Attempts to stop drug use may cause intense cravings and make you feel physically ill (withdrawal symptoms).

Drug addiction symptoms or behaviours include, among others:

  • Feeling that you have to use the drug regularly — daily or even several times a day
  • Having intense urges for the drug that block out any other thoughts
  • Over time, needing more of the drug to get the same effect
  • Taking larger amounts of the drug over a longer period of time than you intended
  • Making certain that you maintain a supply of the drug
  • Spending money on the drug, even though you can’t afford it
  • Not meeting obligations and work responsibilities, or cutting back on social or recreational activities because of drug use
  • Continuing to use the drug, even though you know it’s causing problems in your life or causing you physical or psychological harm
  • Doing things to get the drug that you normally wouldn’t do, such as stealing
  • Driving or doing other risky activities when you’re under the influence of the drug
  • Spending a good deal of time getting the drug, using the drug or recovering from the effects of the drug
  • Failing in your attempts to stop using the drug
  • Experiencing withdrawal symptoms when you attempt to stop taking the drug

What Other Drugs Does Is Laser Therapy Effective For Quitting?

Besides cannabis, laser therapy can dramatically help with withdrawal symptoms with quitting:

  • Stimulants (e.g. cocaine, caffeine)
  • Depressants (e.g. alcohol)
  • Opioids (e.g. heroin, fentanyl, oxycodene)
  • Benzodiazepines (Ativan, Valium, Xanex)
  • Hallucinogens (e.g. LSD)

This image shows that laser light is very gentle and pain free versus acupuncture needles.

  • Painless. Although laser acupuncture is based on theories of acupuncture, no needles are used to pierce the skin or tissues. Only gentle, low-intensity laser is applied over acupuncture points.


  • Easy to Learn. Dave has made the process of learning to treat acupuncture points yourself using gentle laser light simple and safe with his AcuEazy Protocols. By taking an active role in your own therapy (treating yourself) versus passive (by a therapist), you empower yourself and increase your sense of control in quitting cannabis.


  • Treat Yourself Anytime. A big advantage of learning to treat yourself with laser is the ability to treat yourself at any hour of the day or night.

  • Reduces Stress. Laser therapy usually improves mood, reduces feelings of anxiety, depression and other negative emotional factors that affect a person’s stress levels. Most people experience an increased general sense of well being after laser treatment. Continuing with occasional treatment after you quit is a great way to manage stress in general and will help prevent relapse.


  • Less Dependence On Pharmaceuticals. Self Laser can dramatically lessen your need for pharmaceutical drugs like anti-depressants, anti-anxiety medications and similar. Always consult with your family physician regarding any changes with medication.

  • Limited Risk of Weight Gain. Dave’s AcuEazy Protocols include treating appetite suppression points to discourage your desire for sugar and other unhealthy foods as a substitute for cannabis.


  • Increased Motivation. Because withdrawal symptoms often diminish quickly with laser therapy, many people report that they have more motivation to make other positive lifestyle changes after they quit (a healthier diet, more exercise, etc.).



What To Expect During Your Online Consultation…

A woman is shown using a simple laser device to stimulate an acupuncture point between in the ear for relaxation.
Using laser to stimulate auricular (i.e. ear) points is an important component of Lazer Dave’s AcuEazy Protocols approach.

During the online consultation, Dave will guide you through your first Self Laser treatment step-by-step. This ensures you are confident in locating all  AcuEazy points to be treated and safety protocols. AcuEazy point locations are found on the face, ears, hand, wrist, arm, feet and lower legs.

You may feel a slight warm or tingling sensation in your body during treatment. As the points are stimulated with the laser, your body should begin to release endorphins and other powerful neuro-chemicals which promote a pleasant sense of relaxation.

What to Expect After Your First Self Laser Therapy Treatment…

After your first Self Laser Therapy treatment for quitting cannabis and other drugs you will likely feel relaxed, calm, and best of all your desire for cannabis will likely have diminished. Dave recommends treating yourself 2-3 times a day during the first week after you quit and to follow his habit change suggestions to the best of your ability. Doing so will maximize your results and increase your chances of quitting for good.

To support you with your treatments, you are entitled to 2 weeks of email support with Dave after your online consultation.


How Effective is Self Laser Therapy for Quitting Cannabis and other Drugs?

A woman is shown using a simple laser device to stimulate an acupuncture point in the hand for relaxation.
Here this person is applying laser to an important point in Chinese Medicine called LI4 (large intestine 4). In the AcuEazy Protocols, Dave simply identifies the point as AcuEazy point AE – 3A.

Despite what some skeptics say about laser therapy, there IS scientific evidence that supports the efficacy of laser therapy for drug addiction.

In addition, an experienced and successful laser therapist like Lazer Dave leverages an “acupuncture” approach with laser when treating any addiction including alcohol. This is a critical component Dave employ’s in both his clinical practise AND and his AcuEazy Protocols.

It is not entirely understood by the scientific community why acupuncture is effective in treating drug addiction. Lazer Dave readily admits there is an esoteric component to explaining why acupuncture helps with addiction. Despite this fact, scientific research does clearly provide evidence that acupuncture raises the level of endorphins in the body (NOTE: without the side effects of using pharmaceuticals or other substances). Endorphins are the body’s natural painkillers and scientists can all agree that elevated levels of endorphins will help alleviate cravings and withdrawal from all drugs including alcohol. Here is a study from PubMed to illustrate this point:

Chinese medicine explains the efficacy of acupuncture in a different way, describing acupuncture as a way of balancing yin and yang energies. By receiving acupuncture treatments, a person struggling with substance abuse nourishes the yin energy and brings balance back to their natural energies.

Lazer Dave subscribes mostly to scientific and strong anecdotal evidence. His approach is grounded on his training through McMaster University, via the Medical Acupuncture Program.


Is Self Laser Therapy Safe?

Any potential contraindications to treatment, risks or side effects are addressed during the email consultation. In addition, this is covered for your reference in Dave’s Self Laser Therapy Manual(s). Unlike most pharmaceutical solutions and other therapeutic options such as needle acupuncture, laser therapy is non-toxic, drug-free and non-invasive.

DISCLAIMER: Laser therapy, laser acupuncture and self laser therapy is intended as adjunct to, not a substitute for, conventional medical therapy. You should consult with a qualified practitioner before treating yourself with laser if you are taking medication or have a medical condition.


Are There Any Side Effects?

Negative side effects are very uncommon. Usually, clients report that they feel relaxed and sleep better than normal following self laser treatment. Most are surprised at the ease in which they are able to quit cannabis and other drugs with self laser therapy.


How Does Self Laser Therapy Help Me Quit Cannabis and other Drugs ?

Based on auricular therapy and medical acupuncture, low intensity laser is applied to specific energy points on the ear, hands, wrist, feet and lower leg area in order to stimulate the pleasure centres of the brain to release neurotransmitters such as dopamine, serotonin, and endorphins. Stimulating these points help break the addiction cycle to marijuana and other drugs. 

Auricular therapy is a critical component of Lazer Dave’s AcuEazy Protocols. The ear contains various energy points for influencing the addiction areas of the brain.


Dave also incorporates body acupuncture treatment with his AcuEazy Protocols.

The goal of self laser therapy to quit cannabis is to noticeably reduce withdrawal symptoms – giving you an edge over all other options to quit.

For more details on how auricular therapy works, please proceed to the Auricular Therapy Explained page. You can read more about laser acupuncture on Dave’s Laser Acupuncture Explained page. Lastly, you can read up on laser therapy on Dave’s Laser Therapy Explained page.



Is Self Laser Therapy Painful ?

Not at all. Most patients describe treatment as extremely relaxing and pleasant. Some people feel no sensations, while others feel light pressure, tingling, warmth and/or a relaxing “heaviness” in their arms and legs during or post treatment.


How Many Self Laser Treatments Will I Need ?

Dave recommends that you treat yourself 2-3 times a day the first few days after you quit. Many people will treat themselves once per day thereafter until all desire and withdrawal symptoms have subsided for cannabis.

How Long Are Treatments?

Individual self treatment duration is typically 45 minutes.
