How is it made?

Marijuana is the dehydrated flower buds and leaves of the tree and also contains stems and seeds. The color can vary from brown to grayish-green to green. It frequently has a heady or spicy scent. Users will mainly repeatedly smoke it on hand-rolled cigarettes, in water pipes or mixed with cigar tobacco.


The quantity of 9-delta tetrahydrocannabinol depends on how the cannabis is prepared. Here is a list on THC:

  • In marijuana the ranges are varied from about 1% -20%
  • Hash oil contains generally 10 percent to 20 percent
  • In hash it differs depending on the supply and how it was prepared

The amount of 9-delta tetrahydrocannabinol or THC in marijuana also depends on:

  •  The amounts of leaves, stems, flower parts and seeds
  • The genetic structure of the plant
  • How it was prepared

Does Cannabis affect everyone the same way?

These effects are changeable and are different from person to person. The way someone feels after using cannabis depends on several factors:

  • Weight and age
  • Mood, environment, and expectations
  • The amount of dose
  • Psychiatric or medical conditions
  • The way the cannabis is used and for how long and how often and if cocaine has also been applied
  • Use of some other drugs, including prescription, non-prescription, and any street drugs
  • Whether it is eaten or smoked
  • Short-term apply of cannabis will produce many supplementary effects:
  • Drowsiness
  • Spontaneous laughter
  • Red eyes
  • Impaired reaction, motor skills and coordination
  • Panic, anxiety or mild paranoia
  • Increased hunger
  • Damaged short-term memory
  • Increased heart beat and decrease blood pressure
  • Dry throat and mouth
  • Irritation to the respiratory area

On its own, cannabis intoxication isn’t lethal. On the other hand, cannabis interferes with reaction time, perception, concentration, and coordination which could be lethal.
