Effects of Cannabis

Cannabis is a psychoactive drug that contains more than 500 chemicals. It is often used for medicinal and recreational purposes. The primary psychoactive compound in cannabis is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and it is the responsible substance for the high that is caused by cannabis use. It makes you feel happy, relaxed, sleepy, or hungry, but it can also make you feel anxious and can also cause hallucinations at the same time. It can be consumed in various forms such as smoking and vaping. 

The effects of cannabis vary according to the individual’s age, gender, method of consumption, and tolerance capability. Common effects of cannabis are as follows;

  • Feeling a sense of euphoria and relaxation and increased sensory experiences. 
  • Your appetite gets increased and you feel hungry often, and crave some specific food.
  • Experiencing a lack of concentration and impaired coordination of cognitive functions 
  • Dryness and redness in mouth and eyes.
  • Experiencing reduced pain, anxiety, and inflammation.

Too much consumption of cannabis may lead to anxiety, paranoia, and impaired memory. It may also lead to respiratory problems and also includes a high risk of addiction. You should not consume this without consultation with a doctor and only consume moderate amounts. 

Types of cannabis

There are two main types of cannabis namely, cannabis Indica and cannabis sativa. Also, there is another hybrid type of cannabis that is a mixture of both types. 

  • Cannabis sativa; is known for its energizing and uplifting effects.
