( Hashish ; Bhang ; Ganja ; Marijuana ; Indian Hemp ) The intake of Cannabis is not considered a Criminal offence and which is not the case with the Opium intake ; so the intake of Cannabis will be more than Opium and so there are more people addicted to it , particularly in India . In Cannabis , OVERSENSITIVITY ., SENSE OF ISOLATION as it is dominated by SYCOTIC MIASM , we see a Cover-up for a feeling of Inadequacy . And a SYPHILITIC tendency with FANTASIZING and with EXAGGERATING tendencies in everything .
MENTAL CONFUSION ; EXCESSIVE THEORISING , ethereal - Floating sensations ; FEAR of dark , Fear of Insanity or of losing control and an extreme Anxiety about health . Desires and dread of Water , Lectophobia - Fear of going to bed . DISORIENTATION ; Abundant ideas and fixed ideas . THOUGHTS persistent , intrude and crowd around each other ( Anac.,Lac-c ) , move in circles . Sense of duality . WEAKNESS OF MEMORY , Get lost in well known streets . TIME PASSES TOO SLOWLY , this is also of exaggerated like a hour seems as a day . Talkative . Exaggerated Fun making ; VERSES MAKES ( Rhythm ) . They talk extravagantly on one subject , mainly on Science ; Here we can take the example of a prominent personality in India , who was a great Cricketer of yester years and who is now on television shows - is known to talk with lots of zest & zeal ; Very often whatever he says is in ‘ Shayari ‘ form , means like Verses and Exaggerated type ; he is Mr . Navjyot Singh Sidhu .
Cannabis has two main types of Mental pathology - TYPE ONE : Confusion dominates the picture , but the patient does not have actual delusions . He theorizes endlessly and his thoughts are disconnected , but still not totally incoherent . His intellectual faculties are weak , but have not yet yielded to illusions . He has a fear of losing control , a fear of insanity , but does not have the actual Insanity that prevails in type two , and the patient is Conscious of the deterioration of his Mind and out of this condition emerges an overwhelming anxiety about Sanity ; the patient actually feels that Insanity is imminent .
TYPE TWO : is of an acute condition , such as Fever or Acute mental derangement or chronic states , including chronic cases of mental disturbance and disease . The Mind is completely broken down in total Confusion and out of touch with reality - and Delusions of different types and in varying degrees prevail .
The perceived weakness is actually an Inadequacy in facing the threats , dangers and risks of the outside world . This person feels unequipped to face them directly and hence observes the world from within the safe confines of a “ Glass cage ” . Cannabis-ind is the one who is locked inside the house ; this is not an ordinary house but a Palace . Thus although he is very well provided materially , but he is lonely . There is a total lack of any kind of stimulus within the confines of this house , but he fears to step out of it , since he feels it is risky to do so . So he stays within this house , fearful of the dangers outside and he makes up for the lack of stimulus by building “ Fantasies ” and viewing things in a far more exaggerated form ( Sexual desire ) that they appear in reality , his sense of perception becomes exaggerated .
Colours appear brighter , Sounds sweeter , Distances are exaggerated and life becomes extremely peaceful and beautiful . Even the dreams are also of this exaggerated , Fantasy type with beautiful scenes and women ; And all these things , even in dreams he is watching from the window of his house ( Palace ) . All impressions and perceptions are very much increased . Exaggerated Fancies . But behind these pleasant fantasies lies fears ; he has never gone out of his house ( glass house ) into the outside world (Buddha ) ; Hence , when he goes out , it is terrifying for him since the outside world is too harsh for him especially with his heightened sensitivity and perception . There is a fear of threatening danger . The inside bores him while the outside terrifies him , there fore he takes Cannabis ( crude / drug ) inside the house to keep himself stimulated or he will be addicted to watching T V or Movies continuously at home to stimulate himself without risk ; here both Cannabis and the Television are similar to him .
The Cannabis person laughs a lot , he can’t control , he laughs even at the drop of a hat ; laughs at every trifling word spoken to him . Uncontrollable laughter , Immoderate laugh , exaggerated ; Cannabis indica is recognised by the words “ Magnification or Amplification ” ; All the energy goes into exaggeration and expressions and no energy in recall , Hence forgetfulness increases and he forgets the last ideas and thoughts & words ; begins a sentence , forgets what he intends to speak ; therefore he forgets to complete a sentence . Floating sensations of the body or parts of the body - they seem larger (Magnified) . There are so many DELUSIONS . It can be called the Remedy for Delusions . Delusions , everything seems unreal ; Delusions - deserted , forsaken ; Delusions - is leading a vegetable existence ; Delusions - injury , is about to receive . Apathy .
Dreams of Embarrassment and Unsuccessful efforts are seen in Cann-sativa , which shows that success and failures are more important to a Cann-sativa than to Cann-ind . There is a marked CRAVING for SWEETS .
