The global cannabis market is experiencing significant demand for recreational purposes. They are actually among the most often utilized recreational drugs. They offer a distinct and pleasant experience not available with other substances. Research has demonstrated that cannabis can alleviate stress and anxiety, improve mood, and increase creativity. Although it can be consumed in food or prepared as tea, cannabis is most commonly smoked in cigarettes or pipes. The euphoric effects of cannabis are attributed to THC, the main element in the plant. THC affects a user’s perceptions, emotions, and behavior by attaching to cannabinoid receptors in the brain.
