Cannabis refers to a psychoactive drug that is generally extracted from cannabis indica, cannabis ruderalis and cannabis sativa plants. It is extensively used in the manufacturing of medicines since it contains tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) that offers a relaxing and calming effect when consumed. Therefore, it is widely utilized for treating several medical conditions, such as chronic pain, inflammation, insomnia, anxiety and depression. Apart from this, it is consumed by patients in pill form who are undergoing cancer chemotherapy and suffering from acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). In Thailand, it is also provided to women to ease labor pains and used as a condiment in cooking.
