More than 34,000 illegal cannabis plants were seized from a permitted hemp farm in San Jacinto, California.
According to a news statement, the Riverside County Cannabis Regulation Task Force (CRTF), led by the District Attorney’s Bureau of Investigation, executed a search warrant on the hemp farm on July 28.
In addition to the 34,000 cannabis plants, the CRTF discovered almost 4,600 kilograms of processed cannabis, greenhouses, and a phantom pistol.
The task team executed another search warrant at the permit holder’s residence on July 29 and discovered additional cannabis and evidence; however, the investigation is ongoing and no one has been detained or charged as of yet, according to the release.
What Does the Term Cannabis Mean?
Cannabis refers to three psychotropic plants: Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica, and Cannabis ruderalis.
When the blossoms of these plants are picked and dried, one of the most widely used medications in the world is produced. Some refer to it as weed, others as pot, and others as marijuana.
As marijuana becomes legal in an increasing number of jurisdictions, its names are developing. Increasing numbers of people today use cannabis to refer to pot.
Some contend that it is a more accurate designation. Others believe it is more neutral than names like “marijuana” or “cannabis,” which some people associate with its unlawful usage. In addition, the term “marijuana” is losing acceptance due to its racial past.
Cannabis is usually consumed for its relaxing and calming effects. In some U.S. states, it’s also prescribed to help with a range of medical conditions, including chronic pain, glaucoma, and poor appetite.
Keep in mind that while cannabis comes from a plant and is considered natural, it can still have strong effects, both positive and negative.

Despite the fact that cannabis is a plant and hence considered natural, it can have powerful effects, both positive and negative.
What are the Constituents of Cannabis?
Cannabinoids include more than 120 of the plant’s constituents. Cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are two cannabinoids for which experts have a very solid grasp of their effects (THC).
Each has unique impacts and applications:
- CBD: This psychoactive cannabinoid is non-intoxicating and non-euphoric, so it will not make you “high.” It is frequently employed to relieve inflammation and pain. Additionally, it may alleviate nausea, migraines, seizures, and anxiety. (Epidiolex is the first and only prescription medicine approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that contains CBD. This drug is used to treat some types of epilepsy.) Researchers are still attempting to fully comprehend the medical efficacy of CBD.
- THC: The primary psychoactive component in cannabis. The “high” most people associate with cannabis is caused by THC.
