Calmness is bliss, especially when one’s heart stops beating, but you’re still breathing. The modern ways have brought about a whole new method of existing, but at the same time, created controversies. Starting from the media fits and rule breakers, life perhaps seems more fun. The popular belief is that in the olden days, there were not much fun activities to spice up existence. One particular thing that people of today have paid great respect is the widely known plant of pleasure.
Cannabis is from the cannabaceae family in the genus type of flowering plants. Although, there are species of the cannabis plant, namely; cannabis sativa, cannabis ruderalis, cannabis indica. The genus is widely accepted as being indigenous to and originating from central Asia. It turns out that even people in the olden days did not miss out on the exciting findings of this particular plant. They used the plants for a lot of tasks; in fact, it was mostly used for certain medical purposes. Breaking down discussions of the different species or cannabis, more light will be thrown on the comforting properties of the cannabis plant.
It is an annual herbaceous flowering plant, indigenous to eastern Asia. Although, because of its distribution due to its widespread cultivation, it can be traced down anywhere. It has been cultivated throughout recorded history, used as a source of industrial fire, seed oil, food, recreation, religious and spiritual moods. Each part of the plant is harvested differently, depending on the use of the plant.
This is a species of cannabis that contains low cannabinoids such as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). It is a native to central and Eastern Europe, also Russia. Cannabis ruderalis is accepted as its own species due to its unique traits and phenotypes which distinguish from cannabis sativa and indica. It is widely debated whether ruderalis is a subspecies of cannabis sativa or not. Cannabis ruderalis is traditionally used in Russian and Mongolian folk medicine, especially in treating depression. It is used as a form of cancer treatment as well as sclerosis and loss of appetite. Cannabis ruderalis is among the lowest THC producing biotypes of cannabis so it is rarely used for recreational purposes. Also, due to the typically higher concentration of cannabidiol(CBD), ruderalis plants are valuable for patients looking to treat anxiety or epilepsy.
Cannabis indica (formerly known as sativa forma indica)
Today, cannabis is regarded as illegal by some law enforcement agencies and government policies. But in-depth research proves just how helpful and relevant cannabis is and has been to mankind. If proper time can be taken to run different understudies on the plant, it would be understood why cannabis is in so much demand by people. The popular belief is that the effects of cannabinoids such as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) could make a person go mad or through the spells of hallucinations, endanger lives. There are already different species of cannabis that carry out different tasks. The differences are mapped out by the greater content of property one species carries and that also determines its primary use. If recognized, the species have been debated and are still debated to be similar. Only slight differences determine their different names and different compound functions according to researchers.
The content of cannabis that gets one hyperactive or, according to social regards, “cloud nine” is the tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). The level of THC differs in all three species of cannabis. The sativa contains a moderate amount, the ruderalis contains a little amount but the indica contains a large amount of THC. But there are no extremities. Provided are other content of medicinal properties that help the human system. The THC primarily affects the brain but its effects wear off after some time. The cannabis is safe.
