LET’S SET THE ISSUE IN THE REAL PERSPECTIVE
A BIT OF HISTORY
Cannabis is a genus of flowering plant in the family Cannabaceae.
The number of species within the genus is disputed. Three species may be recognized: Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica, and Cannabis ruderalis; C. ruderalis may be included within C. sativa; or all three may be treated as subspecies of a single species, C. sativa.
The genus is indigenous to central Asia and the Indian subcontinent.
Cannabis has long been used for hemp fibre, for hemp oils, for medicinal purposes, and as a recreational drug.
