Mode of Use & Preparation - Cannabis

Cannabis is the most widely used illicit drug in the world and is usually used in a cigarette commonly known as a ‘joint’. It is also widely used by mixing in foodstuffs, especially in tea.

There are many different ways that marihuana is used.

  • Certain users make it as tea or mix it with food.
  • Others smoke it using hollowed out (emptied of the tobacco) cigars, called blunts, filled with the drug.
  • The most common method of usage is smoking loose marijuana rolled into a cigarette called a Joint or Nail.
  • Sometimes marijuana is smoked through a water pipe called a bong, hookah, or submarine.

Some of the common preparations of Cannabis in India are:

  • Hashish/Charas: Prepared from the resinous exudates from the flowering tops of the cultivated plants
  • Ganja: Prepared from the small leaves and stems of the highly cultivated non-flowering plants
  • Bhang: Prepared from the dried leaves, flowering shoots, and tops of the uncultivated plants
  • Hash Oil: Prepared from the fat-soluble plant extract

i am from Australia and i want the tablet name in Australia is SIVOLDI FOR hepatitis C patient . i want the same pill in generic,84 pill. i want in Chennai ,if any body send me email or phone or add of place that i got these tablet.

This article has successfully highlighted all possible negative effects. But there are scientific articles which claims cannabis to be one of the most medically useful plant in earth which can be used to treat/supplement the treatment of variety of diseases such as incurable epilepsy, cancer/tumours, CNS disorders, MS, auto-immune diseases, depression and even as a household treatment for pain. Which makes me believe this is a highly biased article propagating propaganda . Hi, doctors, double check the facts you know, pledge to give patients a better treatment when possible. Please correct me if I am wrong.
