Some people smoke it in hand-rolled cigarettes calle’d joints; in pipes, water pipes (sometimes call bongs), or in blunts (marijuana rolled in cigar wraps). It can also be use to brew tea and, particularly when it is sell or consumed for medicinal purposes. It’s frequently mixe into foods (edibles) such as brownies, cookies, or candies. Vaporizers are also increasingly use to consume marijuana. Stronger forms of marijuana include sinsemilla (from specially tended female plants) and concentrate resins containing high doses of marijuana’s active ingredients, including honeylike hash oil, waxy budder, and hard amberlike shatter. These resins are increasingly popular among those who use them both recreationally and medically.

The chemical is found in resin producedd by the leaves and buds primarily of the female cannabis plant. The plant also contains more than 500 other chemicals. Including more than 100 compounds that are chemically related to THC, called cannabinoids.2
