What is Cannabis?


Cannabis is a popular drug that is obtained from Indian Hemp Plants like Cannabis Sativa and Cannabis Indica. The common names given to the drug are grass, pot, hash, weed, mull, ganja, cones, smoke and hooch. The main active chemical present in Cannabis is HTC (delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol), which is a mind-altering agent.

Cannabis is used mainly because it acts a depressant drug that slows down the activity of central nervous system and the messages which travel between brain and the body, thereby altering the feelings and moods of the individual. The large doses of Cannabis can result in Hallucinogenic effects.
