Find out what Cannabis is.
Cannabis is a genus of flowering plants in the Cannabaceae family, which consists of three primary species: Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica, and Cannabis ruderalis.
THC is the main active chemical in the plant. Cannabis is a depressant, causing your nervous system to slow down and makes you more relaxed. If large amounts of cannabis are ingested, hallucinogenic effects may occur. Cannabis has been proven to be efficient in helping patients with nausea, chemotherapy, severe weight loss, HIV/AIDS, cancer, or anorexia nervosa, pain relief, muscle spasms, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injury, glaucoma, epilepsy, and asthma.
