Researchers studied a group of people who were dependant on cannabis and did not want treatment to help them give up this habit. They found that a 10-30minutes of exercising on the treadmill over a period of 2-weeks helped curb the craving for the use of cannabis by almost 50%. This study is of great importance since presently there is no way to treat cannabis dependence.
