Dried leaves from the female hemp plant is usually smoked as a form of a narcotic and hallucinogen. Hemp plants contains THC {Tetrahydrocannabinol) the main active chemical in Marijuana. The membranes of certain nerve cells in the brain contain protein receptors that bind to THC. Once securely in place, THC kicks off a series of cellular reactions that ultimately lead to the high that users experience when they smoke marijuana.

If someone is high on marijuana, he or she might:

Seem dizzy and have trouble walking;
Seem silly and giggly for no reason;
Have very red, bloodshot eyes; and
Have a hard time remembering things that just happened.

When the early effects fade, over a few hours, the user can become very sleepy or very hungry! also known as "the munchies" ;)
