Back in the days, marijuana was either smoked or ingested in food. However, over time and as science, chemistry and botany have progressed, extensive research
has been conducted on marijuana and there is much more variety in the way it is consumed.
The chemical compound that gives marijuana its effects are called cannabinoids. Each cannabis plant has at least 85 different cannabinoids, but the most well known

effects, other than cotton mouth. However, it is important to note that if someone is taking certain medications, it would be recommended to consult with a doctor about using CBD isolate in
conjunction, since its behavior has pointed to the fact that it interferes with liver enzymes in a way that might break down the components of other drugs.
