Marijuana is often referred to as weed, MJ, herb, cannabis and other slang terms. It’s the green or gray dried flowers of Cannabis sativa. The main psychoactive chemical in the substance is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is responsible for the mind-altering state in people when consumed. The second important chemical in marijuana is Cannabidiol (CBD), which has been shown to be effective in treating pain, anxiety and other conditions.
It is considered a drug and is illegal on the federal level in the US, but some states have legalized the recreational use of marijuana. In recent history, the classified drug has been gaining more acceptance in the general public as it may have many therapeutic and healing benefits.
