The stems, seeds, and flowers of the cannabis sativa hemp plant are used to make cannabis. Smoking marijuana as a rolled cigarette or "joint," in a pipe, or in a water pipe known as a bong is the most common mode of consumption. It can also be taken orally as a concentrated liquid in the form of a tincture, or cooked into food or tea. The effects of the medicine usually remain longer when taken orally.
Although a cannabis plant contains over 400 compounds, THC, or delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, is the one that affects brain function. Cannabis growers use genetic engineering to boost THC levels in their plants, making it more potent and addicting.
THC passes from the lungs into the circulation when cannabis is smoked, bringing the chemical all the way to the brain. THC attaches to certain cannabinoid receptors on nerve cells in the brain, which impact pleasure, memory, focus, coordination, and time perception. The high is caused by a biological reaction in the brain's pleasure centres. THC also adheres to fatty tissues in the body, making it possible to detect users for weeks after they have taken it.
