Marijuana, also known as Weed, Cannabis or Ganja is a psychoactive product of either the plant Cannabis Sativa or more often, Cannabis Indica that is typically ingested by inhaling the smoke of the burning buds or flowers and resin of the plants (Hashish) or by consuming the plants in food products. Humans have been consuming cannabis since prehistory, although in the 20th century there was a rise in its use for recreational, religious or spiritual, and medicinal purposes. It is estimated that about four percent of the world’s adult population use cannabis annually and 0.6 percent daily. Cannabis is the world’s most often used illegal drug. The possession, use, or sale of psychoactive cannabis products became illegal in most parts of the world in the early 20th century. Since then, some countries have intensified the enforcement of cannabis prohibition while others have reduced the priority of enforcement.
The psychoactive effects of cannabis, known as a “high,” are subjective and can vary based on the individual. Some effects may include general change in consciousness (altered perception), mild euphoria, feelings of well-being, relaxation or stress reduction, lethargy (seen more towards high cbd/thc ratio plants, such as Indica/Indica dominant strains), increased appreciation of humor, music or art, joviality, metacognition and introspection, enhanced recollection of episodic memory, increased sensuality, increased awareness of sensation, increased libido, creative or philosophical thinking, disruption of linear memory, paranoia, agitation or anxiety, experiential augmentation of other psychedelics and increased awareness of patterns and color.
