Cannabis, the biological name for the hemp plant, is generally perceived as a “soft drug” with negligible, reversible side effects that are non-addictive and do not pose a threat to others. What is more, cannabis is a potent medicinal herb that is said to work wonders for cancer, multiple sclerosis, pain, epilepsy, sleeping disorders and many other diseases and ailments.
