It has been widely used in anesthesia and analgesia in medicine, but it is fast and very difficult to withstand. Long-term use can destroy people's immune function and cause damage to major organs such as heart, liver and kidney. Injecting and smoking can also spread diseases such as AIDS.

The main active ingredient of cannabis drugs is tetrahydrocannabinol. Cannabis has inhibitory and anesthetic effects on the central nervous system. It produces euphoria after smoking. Sometimes it can cause hallucinations and delusions. Long-term smoking can cause mental disorders, slow thinking, and damage the body's immune system.
