Cannabis refers to leaves, buds, flowers and resin from the cannabis plant, Cannabis sativa, a native of central Asia.

Cannabis is usually smoked in the form of dried leaves and buds, or as a dried resin (hashish). Smoked in moderate quantities, cannabis can produces feelings of fuzzy mellowness and general well-being. It can interfere with memory and increase appetite ("the munchies"). Some users experience nausea, anxiety and paranoia. If eaten, the resin can be powerfully hallucinogenic. No fatal dose has ever been recorded in humans
