What are cannabis and marijuana – and what happens in a seminar?
Cannabis and marijuana are also called weed, herb, pot, grass, bud, ganja or skunk, as well as a vast number of other slang terms.
The active ingredient is Tetrahydrocannabinol. Some users smoke marijuana in hand-rolled cigarettes called joints; many use pipes, water pipes (sometimes called bongs), or marijuana cigars called blunts (often made by slicing open cigars and replacing some or all of the tobacco with marijuana). Marijuana can also be used to brew tea and is frequently mixed into foods (‘edibles’) such as brownies, cookies, or candies.
In addition, concentrated resins containing high doses of marijuana’s active ingredients, including honey-like ‘hash oil’, waxy ‘budder’, and hard amber-like ‘shatter’, are increasingly popular among both recreational and medical users.
