Using Cannabis Safely

Cannabis is a substance which affects the way you think and feel. Sometimes you'll enjoy the experience and sometimes you wont. The health risks are undoubtedly fewer than with alcohol or tobacco. But equally without doubt they are greater than doing nothing at all.

Cannabis does not suit everyone. It may make you feel sleepy, lethargic or paranoid. For a very few individuals it may have more serious consequences and we urge you to read our section on cannabis effects and to do a thorough search on Google before deciding to experiment.

If you have decided to experiment then it may help to read our tips, below. If you disagree with any - or would like to contribute any that have worked for you - please
