This chart shows Legality of Cannabis by Country.

Cannabis is a genus of flowering plant that includes three species or subspecies, sativa, indica, and ruderalis. The plant is indigenous to central Asia and the Indian subcontinent.Cannabis has long been used for hemp fibre, for hemp oils, for medicinal purposes, and as a recreational drug. Industrial hemp products are made from cannabis plants selected to produce an abundance of fiber.

To satisfy the UN Narcotics Convention, some cannabis strains have been bred to produce minimal levels of tetrahydrocannabinol, the principal psychoactive constituent. Many plants have been selectively bred to produce a maximum of THC , which is obtained by curing the flowers. Various compounds, including hashish and hash oil, are extracted from the plan.

Cannabis is an annual, dioecious, flowering herb. The leaves are palmately compound or digitate, with serrate leaflets. The first pair of leaves usually have a single leaflet, the number gradually increasing up to a maximum of about thirteen leaflets per leaf , depending on variety and growing conditions. At the top of a flowering plant, this number again diminishes to a single leaflet per leaf.

The leaves have a peculiar and diagnostic venation pattern that enables persons poorly familiar with the plant to distinguish a cannabis leaf from unrelated species that have confusingly similar leaves . As is common in serrated leaves, each serration has a central vein extending to its tip.
