Marijuana, also known as cannabis, pot, or ganja is genus of flowering plants from the family Cannabaceae. These plants originate and spawned from landraces in Central Asia and the Indian Subcontinent. Marijuana plants grow in many different families and phenotypes including sativa, indica, ruderalis, and hemp.

Marijuana plants contain several psychoactive and non-psychoactive cannabinoids like THC and CBD. There are over 80 known cannabinoids in the modern marijuana plant and they all produce a unique and complimentary effect. Marijuana can be dried, extracted into concentrate, or infused into foods or beverages. It can be consumed via smoking, vaping, or ingesting.

Marijuana strains and phenotypes exhibit a variety of qualities and effects and continues to be decriminalized or legalized across the globe. Recreational drugs, like recreational cannabis, are used to deliberately alter one’s state of consciousness, frequently giving rise to sensations of joy and enthusiasm.

In the cannabis industry (especially throughout American states such as Colorado and Washington), marijuana can be bought at a dispensary by anyone (either from the state or from outside the state) who is over 21 years of age. They will need to provide a valid government-issued Identification. Cannabis is considered to be the world’s most widely used recreational drug.

Cannabis is also commonly used as a medical product for people with ailments. Medical marijuana strains generally have higher CBD content levels, whereas recreational marijuana strains normally have higher THC content levels. In other words, CBD is the primary cannabis ingredient which makes it medicinal.

The higher the CBD content, the lesser strength of high the consumer will get. THC is another ingredient in cannabis and this is what makes it psychoactive. It is the primary compound (cannabinoid). Consumers who use strains rich in THC are widely believed to use cannabis for its psychoactive effects as a recreational drug.
