Cannabis hub — publications, news, data and more


Cannabis is the most widely consumed illicit drug in Europe. It has been used as a drug and a source of fibre since historical times. It is a natural product, the main psychoactive constituent of which is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). The cannabis plant is broadly distributed and grows in temperate and tropical areas. Almost all consumption of herbal cannabis and resin is of illicit material.
