Cannabis, commonly known as marijuana, is a psychoactive plant that has been used both recreationally and medicinally for thousands of years. The plant originates from Central Asia and is characterized by its broad leaves and a glandular hairs known as trichomes, which contain cannabinoids—chemical compounds that interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system. The most well-known cannabinoids are tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is primarily responsible for the plant’s psychoactive effects, and cannabidiol (CBD), which is non-psychoactive and has been studied for its potential therapeutic effects.
