what's the difference between THC and weed?
or... what's THC in general?

THC or, delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol, is the main psychoactive chemical in Cannabis. The question you asked is hard to answer because there is a difference but it is more that without THC, weed would be useless to smoke. It wouldn't do anything to you but give you lung cancer from the carcinogens caused by the combustion of the plant material. THC in general is activated through heating to ~300 degrees Celsius and inhaling the smoke and allowing the THC to absorb through your lungs. It can also be digested and absorbed through your stomach. The overdose level of THC is so high that you are realistically more likely to die from drinking too much water than smoking or ingesting too much THC. THC is also fat soluble, not water soluble, meaning it will not bind to water. Teas made out of weed with no fats or oils in them are useless because the THC won't bind to the water. That's why water pipe water is useless to drink and why cooking weed into butter is popular.
In short, without THC, weed is useless. THC is the main active chemical in Cannabis that makes it desirable. The only distinction between the two would be either buying the plant or buying Marinol, the synthetic THC drug marketed as an alternative to medical marijuana. Also hash is just the resin from marijuana, usually scraped out of a smoking pipe but sometimes tediously manufactured for specific sale as hash, which condenses the THC content, making it more potent.

THC is the potency that gets you high. Some pot is stronger than others. Hash is about 10 times more THC than pot.

Fruits are the immediate supply of vitamins, proteins, and electrolytes, so over body may easily absorb them. Found in the case of veggie some of the immediately eatable but some need to cooked well for enhance their taste.
