Cannabis is a flowering plant that has fibrous stalks used for paper, clothing, rope, and building materials leaves, flowers, and roots used for medicinal purposes, and seeds used for food and fuel oil. Cannabis leaves and flowers are consumed in several forms: dried flower buds or various types of concentrated, loose, or pressed resin extracted from  the flowers or leaves through a variety of methods.Once mature, the plant's leaves and flowers are covered with trichomes, tiny glands of resinous oil containing cannabinoids and terpenes that provide physical and psychoactive effects.


Cannabis was renamed under the Mexican terminology "marijuana" during the 1930s by opponents of the drug, who wanted to stigmatize it with a "foreign-sounding name".
