The point of this entry should really be this: That the word "Cannabis" is not slang at all. Instead it is the accepted botanical Genus name for the plant we know by so many other slang and colloquial terms: Hemp, Pot, Marijuana, Ganja, Weed, etc. etc. (Cannabis sps. sativa, indica, and ruderalis.)
Let the word Cannabis remind us that this indigenous herb, which the self-destructive dominator culture feels it needs to persecute so much, is in fact one of the many gifts from the abundant Earth... as natural as the clouds, the rain, the corn in the fields and all the many fruits of our gracious intelligent, and loving planet, Gaia.

Cannabis is a leafy plant which grows wild in many of the tropic and temperate areas of the world. It is cultivated both indoors and out for the production of its flowering tops. The most commonly used form of cannabis are the leaves and flowering tops (buds) which may be either smoked or eaten; It also comes in a more concentrated resinous form called hashish, and as a sticky black liquid called hash oil. There are three distinct species of cannabis: Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica, and Cannabis ruderalis, though there is some argument as to whether these should be considered varieties rather than species. Most recreationally used cannabis is the result of interbreeding between these three types. The term 'hemp' is generally used to describe low-thc varieties of cannabis which are grown for industrial uses.

The accepted scientific Genus of a group of flowering plants that have been historically used for hemp (textile fiber, food, oils) and for ingestion (physical effects for recreation, medicine, and spiritual usage), depending on the species. It is a dioecious plant (having two individual sexes) where most plant species have both male and female characteristic organs on the each individual organism.

In hemp form, it is one of the most useful substances known to man.
In ingestible form, it is a highly useful form of medicine, a historically important spiritual plant, and a commonly used recreation substance.

Nicknames for the ingestible substance Cannabis have been around since its discovery and have been growing in numbers ever since.

Some include:
The ace, the airplane, the ackrite, the bang, the baby, the best, the beasters, the Bob Marley, the buddha, the big green, the bionic, the blaze, the bomb, the bud, the buds, the boom, the broccoli, the doobage, the doja, the dro, that cali, the cess, the chronic, the cheeba, the cheech, the chong, the cure, the dank, the easy, the flower, the gangster, the ganja, the grass, the green, the green goddess, a haystack, some hay, the hash, the herbage, the herb, the hydro, the indian hemp, the jive, the kind, the kryptonite, the lovely, that Mary Jane, marijuana, the medicine, those nugs, the plant, pot, that piff, some puff, the reefer, the remedy, the salad, the shit, the sensi, the sensimilla, the sticky icky, the stuff, that sweet lucy, the trees, the vibe, the wacky tobaccy.

An herb which is usually smoked to get high. Symptoms include: short-term memory loss, hightened senses, creativity, hunger, general well-being, and in some cases, hallucinations.

Cannabis has basically no negative side-effects except mental addiction in few cases. Unlike what someone else said, YOU CANNOT DIE FROM SMOKING CANNABIS. There have been absolutely no deaths from only cannabis. I know someone who smoked 12 bowls of it in one night and just passed out drooling on the floor.

Better than alcohol because you don't get a hangover, and plenty of people can drive very well when stoned.
I just bought 1/8oz of cannabis.
