Genetic variation within the endocannabinoid system may explain why some survivors of childhood adversity go on to become dependent on marijuana, while others are able to use marijuana without problems, suggests new research.

Interesting that a person with a genetic endocannabinoid problem is more likely to be dependent on cannabis following childhood trauma.  That is not very surprising and is akin to saying “people with breathing difficulties are more likely to be dependent on bronchial-dilating inhalers”, or “a person in pain is more likely to become dependent on pain pills”.  In other words, it seems pretty natural for a person who suffers from an endocannabinoid deficiency is more likely to be dependent on cannabinoids to restore the balance.
