avatar

Introduction:

Cannabis is a unique and special plant. It holds many secrets and can be grown everywhere in the world, making it one of the most versitle plants on our planet. The following book contains everything that you want to know about marijuana and hemp. Although this is not verbatim I encourage you to take notes as if it were a college lecture.

In this book you will find everything from the history of Cannabis all the way up to its many uses as well as the upcoming laws and regulations it faces now and in the future. In addition, I encourage any one reading this book who has more information to please leave a comment and I will update the post as soon as possible.

Disclaimer:

This post is strictly for information purposes only. In no way do I condone the illegal use of Cannabis as it is better to use it in a regulated way. This way the plkant medicine that is Cannabis can be used in the way it was intended. Please, if you do indulge please be safe and know your limits as well as the side effects before doing so. Remember this "Weed high" in THC can produce both euphoria and dysphoria so please use responsibly.

A quick note:

This book will include information about the many different types of cannabis as well as Cannabis's many uses. Some of these uses are "high" purposes and some have no psychoactive effects what so ever. That being said this book is not just a big list of marijuana slang, it is a very informative text that I encourage you to take notes on.

Preamble:

Cannabis is a genus of flowering plants in the Cannabaceae family. The number of species within the genus is disputed. Three species may be recognized: Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica, and Cannabis ruderalis; C. ruderalis may be included within C. sativa; or all three may be treated as subspecies of a single species, C. sativa.[1][2] The genus is widely accepted as being indigenous to and originating from Central Asia, with some researchers also including upper South Asia in its origin.[3]

Cannabis has long been used for hemp fibre, for hemp oils, for medicinal purposes, and as a recreational drug. Industrial hemp products are made from cannabis plants selected to produce an abundance of fiber. To satisfy the UN Narcotics Convention,[4] some cannabis strains have been bred to produce minimal levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the principal psychoactive constituent. Some strains have been selectively bred to produce a maximum of THC (a cannabinoid), the strength of which is enhanced by curing the flowers. Various compounds, including hashish and hash oil, are extracted from the plant.[5]

Cannabis contains more than 460 compounds; among them about 100 belong to the class of cannabinoids, which are characterized by their ability to interact with cannabinoid receptors in cells that modulate neurotransmitter release in the brain.[6] As of 2015, preliminary clinical research on medicinal Cannabis is underway. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not approved the use of Cannabis as a treatment for any condition. To conduct clinical drug research with Cannabis in the US, researchers must file an Investigational New Drug (IND) application with the FDA, obtain a Schedule I license from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration,[7] and obtain approval from the National Institute on Drug Abuse.[8][9]

Cannabis is indigenous to Central Asia and the Indian subcontinent,[10][11] and its use for fabric and rope dates back to the Neolithic age in China and Japan.[12][13] It is unclear when Cannabis first became known for its psychoactive properties; some scholars suggest that the ancient Indian drug soma, mentioned in the Vedas, was Cannabis, although this theory is disputed.[14]
