Cannabis is one of the most commonly used illicit drugs in India as well as in the world. Until recently, very few studies regarding cannabis and its various effects were studied. With more countries and states all over the world legalizing, more studies regarding various harmful effects of cannabis and its side effects are being studied.1 Here we present a 16-year-old male patient who came with a history of cannabis abuse for 2 years. He came with complaints of abdominal pain and developed seizures later on. Diagnosed to have a cannabis-induced seizure. Cannabis abuse through its various vascular and toxic mechanisms could explain the seizure.
