Consuming Too Much


Over-consumption of Wed is often described with the term ‘greening out’ and often describe falling asleep due to intoxication. While taking too much is a concern, like other intoxicants, no deaths have ever been attributed to overdosing on Cannabis. The ‘first ever’ death was claimed to occur last year regarding an 11-month-old, but reports found this claim to be false.



Getting Technical


Consider this a quick technical overview, I will be going into further detail in future posts. Cannabis is a classification of a flowering plant. The species commonly consumed are Cannabis Sativa and Cannabis Indica. These species are used to create the various forms of Cannabis described above. Hemp also belongs to the Cannabis family, but varies from Cannabis Sativa and Indica dramatically.


This is just a start. I will be expanding on this list of Cannabis slang, and adding links to focus in on importants terms and concepts in future posts. If you would like to see something added here, use the form below. Thanks!
