Cannabinoid

cannabinoidsendocannabinoidsphytocannabinoid
Some strains have been selectively bred to produce a maximum of THC (a cannabinoid), the strength of which is enhanced by curing the flowers.
Ligands for these receptor proteins include the endocannabinoids (produced naturally in the body by animals), the phytocannabinoids (found in cannabis and some other plants), and synthetic cannabinoids (manufactured artificially).

Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs

Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs 1961Schedule IUN conventions
To satisfy the UN Narcotics Convention, some cannabis strains have been bred to produce minimal levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the principal psychoactive constituent.
. . The parallel existence of the Single Convention and the 1971 Convention have led to certain illogical effects such as the fact that a plant (cannabis) containing at most 3% of a principal element is dealt with more severely than the pure substance at 100% (tetrahydrocannabinol or THC).

Cannabidiol

The two cannabinoids usually produced in greatest abundance are cannabidiol (CBD) and/or Δ 9 -tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), but only THC is psychoactive.
It is one of some 113 identified cannabinoids in Cannabis plants, accounting for up to 40% of the plant's extract.

Leaf

Cannabis has long been used for hemp fibre, hemp seeds and their oils, hemp leaves for use as vegetables and as juice, medicinal purposes, and as a recreational drug. The leaves are palmately compound or digitate, with serrate leaflets.
Palmately compound: Leaves have the leaflets radiating from the end of the petiole, like fingers of the palm of a hand; e.g., Cannabis (hemp) and Aesculus (buckeyes).

This taxonomic interpretation was embraced by Cannabis aficionados who commonly distinguish narrow-leafed "sativa" strains from wide-leafed "indica" strains.
Cannabis strains are either pure or hybrid varieties of the plant genus Cannabis, which encompasses the species C. sativa, C. indica and C. ruderalis.

A one-hitter (also oney, bat, tay, oney bat, or taster) is typically a slender pipe with a screened narrow bowl designed for a single inhalation, or "hit", of smoke or vapor from a small serving (about 25 mg) of heated cannabis flower, tobacco leaf or other dry, sifted herbal preparation.

Tetrahydrocannabinol

To satisfy the UN Narcotics Convention, some cannabis strains have been bred to produce minimal levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the principal psychoactive constituent. The two cannabinoids usually produced in greatest abundance are cannabidiol (CBD) and/or Δ 9 -tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), but only THC is psychoactive.
