MARIJUANA

Origin
Cannabis, also known as marijuana or ganja, among many other names, refers to any number of preparations of the Cannabis plant intended for use as a psychoactive drug. The most common form of cannabis used as a drug is the natural herbal form.
The major psychoactive chemical compound in cannabis is Tetrahydrocannabinol (commonly abbreviated as THC). At least 66 other cannabinoids are also present in cannabis, including cannabidiol (CBD), cannabinol (CBN) and tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV) among many others.
In modern times, the drug has been used for recreational, religious or spiritual, and medicinal purposes
The possession, use, or sale of cannabis preparations containing psychoactive cannabinoids became illegal in most parts of the world in the early twentieth century.


Appearance
The typical herbal form of cannabis consists of the flowers and subtending leaves and stalks of mature pistillate or female plants. The resinous form of the drug is known as hashish (or merely as 'hash')
Hashish (which may also be spelled hasheesh) or hash is a concentrated resin produced from the flowers of the female cannabis plant. It varies in color from black to golden brown depending upon purity


Street Names
Marijuana, weed, pot, reefer, grass, dope, ganja, Mary Jane, sinsemilla, hash, herb., Aunt Mary, skunk, boom, kif, gangster, chronic, blunt.


Routes of administration
Usually smoked and sometimes eaten in cookies, brownies or brewed in like tea.
Hash is more potent than marijuana, and can be smoked or chewed. Because of THC's adhesive properties, resin builds up inside the paraphernalia when cannabis is smoked. It has tar-like properties but still contains THC as well as other cannabinoids. This resin still has all the psychoactive properties of cannabis but is more difficult to smoke due to the discomfort caused to the throat and lungs. Cannabis users typically only smoke resin when cannabis is unavailable. Glass may be water-steamed at a low temperature prior to scraping in order to make the resin easier to remove.
Hash oil, or honey oil, is an essential oil extracted from the cannabis plant through the use of various solvents. It has a high proportion of cannabinoids (ranging from 40-90%). This oil is also used in the process of making a variety of cannabis foods.
Kief is a powder made from trichomes (often incorrectly referred to as "crystals" or "pollen") removed from the leaves and flowers of cannabis plants. Kief can also be compressed to produce one form of hashish, or consumed in powder form.


Physical Effects
Cannabis has psychoactive and physiological effects when consumed. The minimum amount of THC required to have a perceptible psychoactive effect is about 10 micrograms per kilogram of body weight. Aside from a subjective change in perception, the most common short-term physical and neurological effects include increased heart rate, lowered blood pressure, impairment of psychomotor coordination, concentration, and short-term episodic and working memory. Long-term effects are less clear.
While many drugs clearly fall into the category of either stimulant, depressant, or hallucinogen, cannabis exhibits a mix of all properties, perhaps leaning the most towards hallucinogen or psychedelic properties, though with other effects quite pronounced as well. Though THC is typically considered the primary active component of the cannabis plant, various scientific studies have suggested that certain other cannabinoids like CBD may also play a significant role in its psychoactive effects.
Although the extent of the medicinal value of cannabis has been debated, it does have several well-documented beneficial effects.
The smoking of cannabis is the most harmful method of consumption, as the inhalation of smoke from organic materials can cause various health problems.
Cannabis use has been assessed by several studies to be correlated with the development of anxiety, psychosis, and depression, however, no causal mechanism has been proven, and the meaning of the correlation and its direction is a subject of debate that has not been resolved in the scientific community.


Withdrawal Effects
Marijuana withdraw symptoms include, irritability, anger, depressed mood, headaches, restlessness, lack of appetite, and cravings for marijuana. Symptoms of marijuana withdrawal first appear in serious habitual users within the first 8 hours and are the most noticeable during the first 10 days, but withdrawal symptoms may last as long as 45 days The withdrawal from marijuana is identifiable by behavioral and emotional distress.
