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.

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.

The best dam thing since sliced bread
no flaws, no hangovers, natural sourced

follows the same rules as jesus:
its as good as gold but is classed as a criminal.

only substance on drug lists that is actually a herb not a manufactured drug.

usually smoked by people unwilling to be unrulely to society or by people who wish to experience the funnier side of more serious events

Unfortunately given wrong impressions by shows such as 'hollyoaks' and 'skins' which gives the impression smoking will ruin your life.
maybe this movie will be funny if we smoke cannabis and turn down the volume then make up what they are saying...?

Toker 1: "Wow, we are really smart and have a well rounded and prestigious background."
Toker 2: "I concur, we should go smoke some cannabis and talk about quantum physics."
