Cannabis


Cannabis is the scientific name for hemp. This special plant genus has been used by humans for various purposes for thousands of years. The fibers of the plant are suitable, for example, for the production of ropes and fabrics, the seeds can be consumed directly or processed into cooking oil, and for some years certain ingredients in cannabis have also been increasingly used as active ingredients in medicine. In addition, the flowers, pollen and resin of the THC-containing cannabis plants have an intoxicating effect, which is why the transmission and possession of cannabis is still prohibited in Germany to this day. However, prescription cannabis has been available since 2017. (fp)
