What are the cannabis/haschish/marijuana physical effects?

Answer:

The use of cannabis has all kinds of physical consequences. The most important ones are:

  • Increased heartbeat. Generally, it slows down in about 20 minutes.
  • Drop of the pressure in your eyeball.
  • Change of blood pressure.
  • Sense of cold or hot hands and feet.
  • Discoloration of the white of the eye to somewhat pink because of dilation of the vessels in the conjunctiva of the eye.
  • Relaxation of the muscles.
  • A dry mouth.

These effects are temporary and mostly disappear after a couple of hours.
