The scientific name for the plant usually associated with the street drug marijuana is Cannabus sativus which is the Indian hemp plant. The active (medically speaking, pain killing) ingredient is tetrahydrocannabinol, often called THC. The medical profession usually refers to this substance as cannabis, or medical cannabis to distinguish it from the often spiked and impure street version known as pot.
