What is Cannabis (Marijuana)
Cannabis (Marijuana), which can also be called weed, pot, or, dope, is the dried flowers and leaves of the cannabis plant.
Chinese legend attributes Emperor Shen Neng as one the first healers to prescribe cannabis as a medical treatment–in 2737 BC.
There are many different components to the cannabis plant.
In fact, there are over 400 different chemical compounds in cannabis or marijuana – and they are just the ones we know about.
Although cannabis contains many active constituents, the compounds that most modern science is concerned about are cannabinoids called CBD’s. (see CBD’s for more information)
