Cannabis refers to a group of plants where the cannabis drug comes from. These are Cannabis sativaCannabis indica, and Cannabis ruderalis. Of all those three, Cannabis ruderalis has the lowest level of THC.

Cannabis can be smoked, ingested, or vaporized. The subjective effects of cannabis vary substantially depending on the variety consumed:

  • Marijuana is the cannabis plant’s dried leaves and flowers (buds), which are smoked in a joint or a bong. This is the most typical variant.
  • Hashish is a dried plant resin that is commonly blended with tobacco and smoked, as well as added to dishes and baked products like cookies and brownies.
  • Hash oil is a liquid that is poured to the tip of a joint or cigarette and smoked (owing to its high strength).
  • Concentrates are extracts (dabs, wax, or shatter) that are often dissolved in butane hash oil and vaporized in small amounts because of the high THC concentration.
