Cannabis is a product of the cannabis sativa plant ( also known as marijuana, pot, bud, green, herb, or flower), and comes in many forms, including dried flowers, hash, extracts (honey oil, phoenix tears, shatter), edibles.
Cannabis contains hundreds of chemical substances. More than 100 chemicals, called cannabinoids, have been identified as specific to the cannabis plant. THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) is the main psychoactive cannabinoid and is most responsible for the “high” associated with cannabis use. Another cannabinoid is cannabidiol (CBD). CBD has little or no psychoactive effects, so you do not feel high. CBD counteracts some of the negative effects of THC.
