Cannabis refers to a psychotropic drug which is made from the dried
leaves and flowers of the hemp plant. Although it grows naturally in the
temperate and tropical regions of the world, it can be cultivated in
almost any climatic condition. The main active chemical in cannabis is
Delta-9 tetrahydro-cannabinol (THC) which produces its hallucinogenic
effects. Cannabis is either smoked as a cigarette, mixed in food or
brewed as tea for recreational purposes. On the other hand, it is used
as a palliative for glaucoma as well as in the treatment of serious
neurological diseases, cancer, AIDS, and other chronic ailments in the
medical industry. The North America legal cannabis market reached a

cannabis has been legalised in a number of states for medicinal purpose.
Moreover, the growing research and development in the field of medical
usage of cannabis is further projected to create positive growth
