Jolly Cannabis 1G HHC Cartridge - Effects, Medical Uses and Legalization

They call it "marijuana" or "cannabis." It is made of dried and shredded leaves and other parts of a hemp plant called Cannabis sativa that have been thrown away. A psychoactive (i.e., mind-altering) drug is used to treat some medical conditions and is used for religious or spiritual reasons.  As the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) says, marijuana is the most commonly used drug in the United States of America. Many states in the United States now allow people to use marijuana for medical reasons and for fun. However, federal law says that marijuana (cannabis) possession is still against the law in the United States, except in approved research settings.

Weed works by making you high:

THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) is the main chemical in marijuana that makes you feel good. The dried flowers, or buds, have the most THC in them. When marijuana smoke is inhaled, THC quickly moves from the lungs into the bloodstream and moves to the brain and other body parts. THC from marijuana binds to specific receptors in the brain called cannabinoid receptors. This starts a chain of cellular reactions that leads to the euphoria, or "high," that users feel. Joy, relaxed feelings, and a better sense of what is going on in the world may happen. It can make some people feel anxious, paranoid, or have a panic attack if they have high levels of THC in their bodies that they aren't used to.

There are many ways that marijuana is used, but what are they?

Joints and nails are two ways people smoke marijuana. You can also smoke it in pipes and bongs. Marijuana can be used in "blunts," which are cigars that have been cleaned out of tobacco and then filled again with marijuana. It can also be used with other drugs like crack. The "blunts" of a cigar keep the tobacco leaf used to wrap the cigar, which means that it mixes marijuana's active ingredients with nicotine and other harmful chemicals.

Side effects of smoking marijuana:

It will depend on how much and how strong the marijuana is and how often the user is exposed to THC. The side effects of marijuana use will be different for each person. In older people, side effects can be much worse.

Marijuana or cannabinoids can have short-term effects, like making you feel high.

  • Raised heart rate
  • Blood pressure that is low when you stand up
  • The muscles relax
  • Dizziness
  • Wrong perception (sights, sounds, time, touch)

thinking, remembering, and solving problems can be challenging for people

because of a lack of coordination and motor skills

  • Agitation, anxiety, confusion, panic, paranoia, and so on
  • A higher appetite
  • Dry mouth and dry eyes

Driving may make it hard for you to react quickly. NIDA research shows that people who drive while high on THC have slower reactions, lousy judgment, and trouble paying attention to signals and sounds.

Recreational use of marijuana:

People need to know that the federal government still classifies marijuana as a drug that should not be sold or given away. People who illegally distribute and sell marijuana are breaking the law. 

Cities, municipalities, employers, landlords, and universities may have different rules about how people can use marijuana. Use in any federal land, national park, or monument is still against the law. 


Most of the time, people who want to use medical marijuana legally must have a condition on their state's list of qualifying medical marijuana conditions and get a medical recommendation from their doctor. The patient can then get a medical marijuana card or permission to buy medical marijuana and other products from dispensaries. There are however tons of alternative cannabinoids such as CBD, CBC, HHC, and more that are federally legal as long as the THC is below 0.3% by weight.
