The effects of cannabis depend on the dose of THC, not the type of cannabis. The hemp plant can be used to make various types of medicines. The following three types can be distinguished.
In common parlance, marijuana also means grass, hay, pot, kif, ganja, Mary Jane.
Marijuana is made from hemp flowers and leaves. These are dried, shredded leaves and shredded parts of the cannabis plant. Sometimes you can also find mixed seeds.
Marijuana contains 0.5 to 5% THC. However, specially grown plants have much higher THC levels. For example, Skunk from Holland contains up to 20% THC. Accordingly, the effect is stronger, and with it the risks.
Marijuana consumption is the most common form of cannabis consumption today.
In common parlance, hashish is also called hashish, bolle, lump, cloth or dope.
Hashish is dark and chocolate-like. The resin of the plant turns into a sticky, dark mass.
Hashish contains 10 to 30 percent THC, which makes it stronger than marijuana.
Hashish comes in a variety of colors depending on where it is made. That is why they speak of the “yellow Moroccan”, “green Turk”, “red Lebanese”, “dark brown Pakistani” and “black Afghan”. This means the country in which the hashish was made.
Cannabis oil is also called oil, red oil, or Indian oil.
Cannabis oil is a viscous, dark brown, sticky liquid. The production is more complex, it is done by distillation or extraction.
The resulting oil has a high THC content of around 50% to 80% and it is therefore much stronger than hashish or marijuana.
Pollution is a big problem. Severe contamination occurs in the production or transport of cannabis.
Sometimes dealers mix other substances to increase the volume of cannabis and make more profit. Some people add sugar or spices to enhance the smell and taste.
In the case of indoor plants, sprayers are used. However, this reduces quality. This can cause unpleasant consequences for the consumer (for example, headaches).
Cannabis is mostly smoked and sometimes eaten.
Most people smoke cannabis in so-called joints. These are hand-rolled cigarettes filled with shredded marijuana or hashish. Some also add tobacco to it. In common parlance, they speak of a joint, an oven, hashish-zi or a bag.
Marijuana can also be smoked in tobacco pipes or water pipes (bangs).
Cannabis use is less common. Marijuana, hashish, or cannabis oil can be made with various “recipes,” such as cookies or cakes. The latter are known as “space cakes”.
Since it is difficult to estimate the dose during preparation, there is a risk of extremely unpleasant consequences in the form of headaches, vomiting and anxiety after taking an overdose.
Because after ingestion, THC does not begin to work until half an hour or later. But then the intensity of intoxication can no longer be controlled.
