Oh and if you don't think there's enough infusion going on in CC's eats, they've always got a side of spreadable cannabutter -- an emerald green concoction that's one pound of bud to 15 pounds of butter -- after which, if you try butter in other states, you'll disappointedly whine "I can't believe it's not bud-er".) is a genus of flowering plant in the family Cannabaceae.
The lower leaf pairs usually occur in an opposite leaf arrangement and the upper leaf pairs in an alternate arrangement on the main stem of a mature plant. ruderalis is short, branchless, and grows wild in central Asia.
The leaves have a peculiar and diagnostic venation pattern that enables persons poorly familiar with the plant to distinguish a cannabis leaf from unrelated species that have confusingly similar leaves (see illustration). Within these two subspecies, Small and Cronquist described C. This taxonomic interpretation was embraced by Cannabis aficionados who commonly distinguish narrow-leafed "sativa" drug strains from wide-leafed "indica" drug strains.
People have long used alcohol to spice up their cooking, but that's because those states are so far from NORML.

This is a contentious issue because there is no universally accepted definition of a species. Normal cognition is restored after approximately three hours for larger doses via a smoking pipe, bong or vaporizer.
One widely applied criterion for species recognition is that species are "groups of actually or potentially interbreeding natural populations which are reproductively isolated from other such groups." It remains controversial whether sufficient morphological and genetic divergence occurs within the genus as a result of geographical or ecological isolation to justify recognition of more than one species. However, if a large amount is taken orally the effects may last much longer.
Cannabis sativa appears naturally in many tropical and humid parts of the world. After 24 hours to a few days, minuscule psychoactive effects may be felt, depending on dosage, frequency and tolerance to the drug.
Its use as a mind-altering drug has been documented by archaeological finds in prehistoric societies in Euro-Asia and Africa. 440 BCE) Histories records, "The Scythians, as I said, take some of this hemp-seed [presumably, flowers], and, creeping under the felt coverings, throw it upon the red-hot stones; immediately it smokes, and gives out such a vapour as no Grecian vapour-bath can exceed; the Scyths, delighted, shout for joy." Classical Greeks and Romans were using cannabis, while in the Middle East, use spread throughout the Islamic empire to North Africa. Various forms of the drug cannabis exist, including extracts such as hashish and hash oil Medical cannabis (or medical marijuana) refers to the use of cannabis and its constituent cannabinoids, to treat disease or improve symptoms.
Although monoecious plants are often referred to as "hermaphrodites", true hermaphrodites (which are less common) bear staminate and pistillate structures together on individual flowers, whereas monoecious plants bear male and female flowers at different locations on the same plant. Cannabinoids, terpenoids, and other compounds are secreted by glandular trichomes that occur most abundantly on the floral calyxes and bracts of female plants. Breeders, seed companies, and cultivators of drug type Cannabis often describe the ancestry or gross phenotypic characteristics of cultivars by categorizing them as "pure indica", "mostly indica", "indica/sativa", "mostly sativa", or "pure sativa". Cannabis is a popular recreational drug around the world, only behind alcohol, caffeine and tobacco.
Male flowers are normally borne on loose panicles, and female flowers are borne on racemes. The genus Cannabis was formerly placed in the Nettle (Urticaceae) or Mulberry (Moraceae) family, and later, along with the Humulus genus (hops), in a separate family, the Hemp family (Cannabaceae sensu stricto). In the United States alone, it is believed that over 100 million Americans have tried cannabis, with 25 million Americans having used it within the past year.
Recent phylogenetic studies based on cp DNA restriction site analysis and gene sequencing strongly suggest that the Cannabaceae sensu stricto arose from within the former Celtidaceae family, and that the two families should be merged to form a single monophyletic family, the Cannabaceae sensu lato. The psychoactive effects of cannabis are known to have a biphasic nature.
