Marijuana is a universal term for the female cannabis plant and dried flowers, buds, or nuggets. It is different from a male plant as only female plants produce flowers rich in THC (active chemical compound).

In the 1930s the term marijuana was imposed by the American press as they wanted to convey the benefits of marijuana in the eyes of the public as medical or recreational purposes.

Marijuana is also known as herb, weed, pot, bud, ganja, and many other terms, and usually consumed with a vaporizer. Some smoke lovers also take cannabis seeds, buds, or flowers in hand-rolled cigarettes called joints, bongs, or blunt.

Marijuana can be used to make tea or edible foods such as brownies, cookies, or candy.
