Marijuana

Bob Marley Smoking Ganja Marijuana and Hashish (cannabinoids)

Both don’t fall into any drug category: they are considered to have hallucinogenic properties but they are not hallucinogens.

People who use cannabis report a range of experiences and feeling states: relaxation, sedation, hilarity, reduced stress, altered time perception, less aggression, anxiety and agitation.

Cannabis can be used to intensify sensory experiences. It can create conditions for greater creativity and increase the connection between mind and body. And cannabis can do the opposite.

Marijuana is used medicinally to treat a range of health problems: glaucoma, multiple sclerosis, nausea and vomiting from chemotherapy, to increase appetite and to manage chronic pain syndromes.

The DEA classifies marijuana as a schedule I controlled substance and considers it to have high abuse potential and no accepted medical use.
