    Cannabis is most commonly abused substance in India. Which form is not used in India as cannabis product?
    a) Ganja
    b) Charas
    c) Bhang
    d) Afeem
    Answer: Afeem

    Explanation:
    Charas, ganja and bhang are obtained from the
    same plant called ‘cannabis sativa’.
    Charas: It’s a resin extract from the top leaves
    and unfertilized flower of the young female
    plant of cannabis sativa.
    Ganja: Like charas, it is made of the top leaves
    and unfertilized flower of young female plant.
    The resin is not extracted like charas. Leaves
    and flowers are dried and smoked in cigarettes,
    chillums and pipes.
    Bhang: Large green leaves and flowering
    shoots of mainly the male plant but female too.
    Afeem: A bitter, yellowish-brown, strongly
    addictive narcotic drug prepared from the dried
    juice of unripe pods of the opium poppy and
    containing alkaloids such as morphine,
    codeine, and papaverine.
