Cannabis is a psychoactive drug from the Cannabis plant. It is also called as Marijuana.
Cannabis contains substances that affect the brain and body, including THC and CBD. THC causes the intoxicating effects of cannabis. CBD is not intoxicating and may reduce some of the effects of THC; however, it does have an effect on the brain.
Everyone's response to cannabis differs and can vary from one time to the next. To minimize your risk or if you are a new consumer, look for a product containing 2.5 mg of THC or less or 10% THC (100 mg/g) or less, and an equal or higher amount of CBD.
Some effects can last as long as 24 hours
If you or someone you know has accidently consumed cannabis or consumed too much cannabis and is not well, contact your local poison center or seek medical attention.
