Up until relatively recently there was a general misconception in the medical community that there were no physical withdrawals from cannabis. However now we know that even though those symptoms are not life threatening, they do exist. They start usually  24 40 48 hours after cessation of use and last for up to two weeks. Most can be described as depressed mood and appetite and increase in anxiety and sleeplessness. He should try to stay active during the day, eat small healthy meals and stay  well hydrated. It will get better in a few weeks and he will be so proud of himself for doing this and so grateful to be done with it. Good luck to both of you.
