n. any of three plant species of the Genus Cannabis. (Species: sativa, indica, and ruderalis). In dried form, their flowers and leaves serve as a recreational drug more commonly-known as marijuana. When smoked, there is a rapid onset of effects and these include a sense of euphoria, loss of focus, and perceptual distortion. Occasional yet repeated use does not effect dependence but rather more of tolerance.
CANNABIS: "Cannabis plants are natural sources of phytocannabinoids which have medicinal yet psychoactive properties."
