Cannabis is a drug that comes from Indian hemp plants such as Cannabis sativa and Cannabis indica. The main active chemical in cannabis is THC (delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol).
Cannabis is a depressant drug. Depressant drugs do not necessarily make you feel depressed. Rather, they slow down the activity of the central nervous system and the messages going between the brain and the body. When large doses of cannabis are taken it may also produce hallucinogenic effects. You can buy marijuana Kitchener in our store.
Hemp has many uses; its fibers can be used for canvas, paper, rope, and other textiles, it is an incredibly efficient bioremediator (it pulls toxic substances out of the soil while growing), and its hurds are increasingly being used as a construction material and a fiberglass alternative. Hemp seeds have long been used in many cultures for their nutritional benefits to humans and other animals alike. They are now also being explored as a source of biofuel. And the hemp flowers are now wildly popular for the production of CBD-rich oils. The flower portion can also be used as a smokable tobacco alternative.
Many laws have been created based on this percentage based definition of hemp. It’s the level of THC the plant variety produces that differentiates it from cannabis’ intoxicating variety, “marijuana,” and allows for its legal classification as a commodity crop.
“Marijuana,” or “drug cultivars” are the terms used in reference to the variety of cannabis that produces more than 0.3% THC. There is a staggering diversity of molecules that plants in this legal category are capable of producing. Among these are cannabidiol (CBD), cannabigerol (CBG), and cannabichromene (CBC), cannabinoids which are valued for their medicinal properties.
In fact, cannabis produces more than 100 unique cannabinoids that mimic compounds produced in the human body. These plant-based cannabinoids, or phytocannabinoids, can work in place of the body’s endogenous cannabinoids, or endocannabinoids, when the body experiences a deficiency in its endocannabinoid system (ECS).
