Cannabis

Cannabis has a chemical constituent called tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), responsible for its characteristic short term effects:

  • Muscular relaxation that can cause loss of coordination and balance as well as increasing the reaction time to stimuli
  • Decreased muscle strength and slight drowsiness
  • Dilation of blood vessels that manifests in the red eyes
  • Increased pulse and heart rate
  • Dry mouth and less saliva
  • Coughing and irritation
  • Occasionally, it may cause negative reactions of panic and terror.

It can also cause lack of motivation, characterized by loss of interest in social relationships and activities, and a generally passive attitude toward others.
