When you smoke cannabis, it can quickly make you feel relaxed, giggly and hungry. You can also see, things that aren’t there – called hallucinations – and get a dry mouth. If you eat or drink cannabis, it can take about an hour before you feel these things.
Using a lot of cannabis may make things seem blurry, you’ll get bloodshot eyes, feel sluggish, be slow to do things and have a hard job thinking straight. Your heart may beat faster, you’ll have low blood pressure and can feel people are out to get you.
When you stop using cannabis you can become moody, angry, worried, feel like you really need to smoke some more and find it hard to sleep. You may feel this way for about a week.
Cannabis is easy to buy and grow in New Zealand. It can be grown outside or inside.
