Dec 4


What is marijuana's legal definition?


Cannabis is the common name of three psychotropic plants Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica, and Cannabis ruderalis.


One of the most commonly utilized drugs in the world is made from the dried flowers of these plants. People call it marijuana, while some call it marijuana or pot.


The names of the medical marijuana cards issued by Missouri are changing as marijuana becomes legal across more states. Cannabis is now frequently used to describe marijuana.


Some claim it's a more precise moniker. Some believe it's more neutral than other names such as marijuana or pot, which are often associated with its illegal use by some. Because of its history with racial groups, "marijuana” is also getting less acceptance.


Cannabis is commonly used for its relaxing and calming properties. It's also prescribed for various ailments across a variety of US states to those who have medical marijuana cards, such as chronic pain, glaucoma and the inability to eat.


Be aware that even though cannabis is made from a plant and is thus considered to be natural, it does produce powerful effects, both positive and negative.


What are the components of marijuana?


Cannabinoids comprise more than 120 compounds present in cannabis. Researchers aren't entirely sure of what each cannabinoid does but they do know the basics about two that are known as cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) (THC).


Each one has its own set of effects and applications.


CBD. CBD is a psychoactive compound that doesn't cause euphoria or intoxication it doesn't give you a "high" from it. It's frequently used to help with inflammation and pain relief. It's also helpful in treating nausea, anxiety headaches, seizures and migraines. (Epidiolex is the first and only CBD-based prescription medication accepted by the Food and Drug Administration or FDA.) This medication is used to treat epilepsy among people.) Researchers are trying to discover the best way to use CBD is for medical uses.

THC. THC is the primary psychoactive component of cannabis. THC is the principal psychoactive ingredient found in cannabis.

CBD, THC, or any combination of these two are all found in cannabis-related products. The dried flower that most people are familiar with as cannabis, on the other hand has both of the cannabinoids but some strains have far more of one than other. Hemp contains a lot of CBD but does not contain the psychoactive THC.


What are the consequences of cannabis in the short term?


There are numerous short-term consequences of using cannabis. Some are positive and some are not. Some can be alarming.


These are some of the best short-term results:


  • A greater appetite, relaxation, giddiness, and experiencing the world around you more intensely.

  • Time and perception of events changed

  • nausea\lethargy\anxiety
