Cannabis is believed to have originated in the mountainous regions just north of the Himalayas in India.

It is also known as hemp, although this term usually refers to cannabis cultivated for non-drug use.

As a drug it usually comes in the form of dried flowers (marijuana), resin (hashish), or various extracts collectively referred to as hash oil.
