Cannabinoids are cannabis-specific compounds that act on cannabinoid receptors in the human body to produce a variety of effects, including analgesia and other medically beneficial uses. The most well-known marijuana cannabinoid is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), but THC is not the only one, as there are over 85 known cannabinoids that all have different effects.

2. Cannabis

Cannabis is a genus of plants that produces its three flowering plants: Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica, and Cannabis ruderalis. Cannabis sativa and cannabis indicia are used in the production of both recreational and medicinal marijuana. Cannabis ruderalis is rarely cultivated due to its naturally low THC content and short stature, but due to the unique ability of ruderalis, it blooms automatically rather than photomaturely, so it is crossed. , This variety may become widespread. Originally from Asia, cannabis is cultivated almost everywhere and has long been cultivated for both hemp production and its medicinal use. 

3. Weed

Weed is marijuana slang.

4. Hemp

Hemp is a fibrous product that can be produced from male hemp plants and can be used to make ropes, paper, beauty products and many other products. Since hemp is a male, it has no medicinal value.

The bud refers to the actual flower of the cannabis plant. These are fluffy pieces that are harvested and used for recreational or medical purposes because they contain the highest concentrations of active cannabinoids.
