Cannabis refers to a group of three plants having psychotropic properties, known as Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica, Cannabis and ruderalis.
When the flowers of cannabis plants are reap and dried, you are left with one of the most commonly used drugs. Some call it weed, pot, and others call it marijuana.
Like weeds in many areas are legal. To refer today, more and more people use the term cannabis weed. Some argue that it is a more accurate name. Others believe it is neutral in comparison with terms such as weed or pot, bringing some people still with its illegal use in combination.
Cannabis is generally consumed for its relaxing and calming effect. In some US states, it is also prescribed for a number of medical conditions to help, including chronic pain, glaucoma and loss of appetite.
Note that while cannabis derived from a plant and of course considered, it can still have a major impact, both positive and negative.

CBD. This is a non-psychotropic cannabinoid, it does not mean that you get "high". It is often used to help to reduce inflammation and relieve pain. It also helps in nausea , seizures, migraines and anxiety. Researchers are trying to fully understand the effectiveness of their medical application.
THC. This is the main psychoactive substance in cannabis. THC is responsible for the "high" that brings most people with cannabis in combination.
