Marijuana (herbal cannabis), is a psychoactive drug from the female Cannabis plant that consists of the dried flowers and subtending leaves and stems. The main psychoactive part of cannabis is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), including at least 65 other cannabinoids. is the most widely consumed form, containing 3% to 20% THC, with reports of up-to 33% THC.
