Cannabis falls into the category of stimulant, depressant, hallucinogen, or antipsychotic, due to containing both THC and CBD. Cannabis exhibits a mix of all properties, leaning towards hallucinogen properties due to THC being the primary constituent.
A 2007 study by the Canadian government found cannabis smoke contained more toxic substances than tobacco smoke.The study determined that marijuana smoke contained 20 times more ammonia, and five times more hydrogen cyanide and nitrogen oxides than tobacco smoke. In spite of this, recent studies have been unable to demonstrate a direct link between lung cancer and frequent direct inhalation of marijuana smoke. While many researchers have failed to find a correlation, some researchers still conclude that cannabis smoke poses a higher risk of lung cancer than regular toacco.
