Marijuana

Introduction

Marijuana is a green, brown, or gray mix of dried, shredded leaves, stems and seeds of the hemp plant. Marijuana is used as a psychoactive (mind altering) recreational drug. The potency of marijuana depends on a variety of factors including the part of the plant used and how mature it was when harvested and the method used to prepare it for use. Marijuana can adversely affect perception and coordination which may lead to accidents or injuries due to erratic driving ability. Smoking marijuana can cause lung irritation bronchitis emphysema

Marijuana is a green, brown, or gray mix of dried, shredded leaves, stems, seeds and flowers of the hemp plant Cannabis sativa.

Marijuana is a green, brown or gray mix of dried, shredded leaves, stems and flowers. It comes from the hemp plant Cannabis sativa. The most common street names for marijuana are pot, weed, grass and herb. Marijuana is used as a psychoactive (mind altering) recreational drug in many parts of the world; however it has been illegal in most countries since the 1950s or 1960s because it was thought to have no medical value but has now been proven that this is not true at all!

Marijuana can be smoked in pipes or rolled into joints using tobacco leaves to hold them together – these are called “joints”. Users sometimes mix hashish (a potent form of cannabis) with tobacco prior to smoking it through pipes made out of hollowed-out newspapers – these are called “spliffs”. People who inhale deep breaths over time may become intoxicated by THC which gives rise to euphoria similar feeling created by alcohol but without its depressant effects; however there are other effects such as dry mouth caused by high levels circulating through bloodstreams during prolonged periods spent sitting still while consuming more than one joint/spliff per episode where they’re smoked every few hours throughout day until bedtime arrives so next morning starts fresh again until third day passes without repeating cycle again.”

Marijuana is used as a psychoactive (mind altering) recreational drug.

Marijuana is a psychoactive (mind-altering) recreational drug that has been used for centuries. It’s not just used recreationally, however; marijuana can also be used as a medicine. The primary use of cannabis in medicine today is to treat chronic pain and nausea caused by cancer treatment or other diseases, such as multiple sclerosis or AIDS.

Marijuana can also be smoked or ingested in foods such as brownies and cakes that contain high levels of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the active ingredient in marijuana plants.

The potency of marijuana depends on a variety of factors, including the part of the plant used and how mature it was when harvested and the method used to prepare it for use.

The potency of marijuana depends on a variety of factors, including the part of the plant used and how mature it was when harvested and the method used to prepare it for use.

  • The parts of plants that contain THC depend on its genetic makeup: Marijuana plants grown from seeds produce less psychoactive effects than those grown from buds or leaves (although they still contain some THC).
  • Marijuana can also be made into different forms by using processes like drying or baking with other materials such as cocoa butter or sugar syrup (which helps preserve freshness). Those who want higher levels of intoxication may choose these techniques over others because they are thought to increase production while decreasing odoriness.

Marijuana can adversely affect perception and coordination.

  • Marijuana can be a dangerous drug.
  • Marijuana is a gateway to more serious drug use, and can lead to other drugs like heroin, cocaine, methamphetamines and hallucinogens.
  • The effects of marijuana on the brain are not fully understood. Research shows that it can adversely affect perception and coordination by causing distorted perception (i.e., blurred vision) or impaired coordination (i.e., difficulty walking). It also affects short-term memory function; this means you may forget where you left something or who you’re talking to while under the influence of marijuana if someone else is nearby who could help remind them what they need at hand in order for them not lose track while carrying out tasks related with their job duties such as delivering mail order packages etcetera; meanwhile there are also other cognitive deficits including difficulty thinking clearly enough necessary tasks when confronted with situations requiring creativity/problem solving skills needed during stressful times like job interviews where candidates may have little time due to tight deadlines set forth by HR departments which require immediate response times from candidates so these types

Marijuana users who smoke the drug frequently may develop many of the same respiratory problems that tobacco smokers do.

Smoking marijuana can cause lung irritation, bronchitis and emphysema.

The most common symptoms of marijuana smoking are coughing and wheezing. You may also experience chest pain and shortness of breath when you smoke marijuana. As with tobacco smokers, long-term use of marijuana may lead to the development of lung cancer in some individuals.

The active ingredient in marijuana is delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the active ingredient in marijuana. It’s what gives you the high, so to speak. THC binds to cannabinoid receptors in your brain and body, which are similar to the opioid receptors that bind with heroin and other drugs like morphine. But unlike opioids, marijuana doesn’t cause physical dependence or tolerance—meaning it’s not likely that you’ll become addicted to it if you use it regularly over time.

What does delta-9-THC do?

Some people who use marijuana can feel some very uncomfortable side effects (though some people do not have these side effects).

Some people who use marijuana can feel some very uncomfortable side effects (though some people do not have these side effects). These include:

  • Paranoia – A person might get paranoid because they think their friends are talking about them or laughing at them. This is a common reaction to the drug, though it doesn’t happen to everyone who uses it.
  • Anxiety – Another common reaction is anxiety, which makes you feel nervous and worried about everything that happens around you. This can cause problems in everyday life for those who experience this reaction when using marijuana regularly or even occasionally.
  • Tiredness – Another effect of using marijuana is tiredness, which makes it hard for someone to do anything physically demanding such as lifting heavy objects or running long distances without feeling tired afterward

Short-term side effects can include an abrupt increase in heart rate and a drop in blood pressure.

Short-term side effects can include an abrupt increase in heart rate and a drop in blood pressure.

  • Increased heart rate: The sudden increase in heart rate is caused by the body’s chemicals releasing adrenaline, which causes your blood vessels to widen. This increases the amount of blood pumped out of your arteries, which reduces the amount that flows back into them, lowering blood pressure. If you’ve ever experienced an episode of hyperventilation (in which you breathe faster than usual), then this is what it feels like for marijuana users who experience symptoms such as dry mouth or red eyes from too much THC interacting with their bodies’ natural chemical processes.*
  • Drop in blood pressure: Many people who use marijuana regularly report feeling lightheaded after smoking; however, others may feel dizzy or nauseated if they’re not used to regular marijuana use yet.* *Dry mouth: This symptom occurs when saliva production slows down because Cannabis has been taken into system.* Red eyes: If someone smokes too much weed before bedtime then they may wake up feeling tired upon waking up next morning due to lack of sleep due to having consumed high amounts during their last night out on the town!

Smoking marijuana can cause lung irritation, bronchitis, and emphysema.

Smoking marijuana can cause lung irritation, bronchitis and emphysema. These are just some of the health risks associated with smoking marijuana. Marijuana smoke contains many harmful chemicals that can damage your lungs and increase your risk of cancer.

If you’re using marijuana, be aware that there are potential downsides to its use.

Marijuana is a drug that has many side effects, including:

  • The risk of addiction
  • Heart problems and lung cancer
  • Memory loss, depression and other mental health problems

Marijuana can also lead to a variety of health issues like nausea and vomiting as well as chronic pain due to its THC content. Individuals who smoke marijuana frequently may develop respiratory infections or cancer.

Conclusion

Marijuana is a drug that can affect your body in many ways. It can cause you to feel tired and uncomfortable, it may make it harder to think clearly, and it can lead to problems with your heart or lungs. Marijuana use is illegal in some states; however, if you’re using marijuana medically on prescription, there shouldn’t be any legal consequences.
