A.K.A: Marijuana, Weed, Buds, Pot
Cannabis is the most commonly used illicit drug in New Zealand. It comes in many forms including bud (flower), oils, resins, and edibles.
The two main parts of cannabis are THC and CBD. THC is the psychoactive component of cannabis which makes people feel ‘high’. THC can make you feel relaxed, giddy, and euphoric. It can also make you feel anxious, drowsy, and paranoid. CBD is not psychoactive but is used to treat a variety of conditions including pain, anxiety, and sleep problems.
Survey participants also reported that barriers to accessing services, resources and information were high.
95% of respondents reported positive effects, in a study that looked at both prescription and black market cannabis use.
