An herb that has a reputation for making you sleepy in the morning is no longer the most common and popular herb in Ireland, but Ganodermaceae is by far the most used.
In the first full week of April, the UK-based Cannabis Business Group, which is based in Northern Ireland, reported it had a record-breaking sales of over 5,500 tonnes of cannabis, up from around 4,000 tonnes the previous week.
But for the first time, it has also sold more of its favourite herb, Ganodermopsis lucidum.
A number of the top-selling cannabis strains around the world are from this family.
Here’s what you need to know about them.
What is Ganodermia?
Ganodermataceae is the family name for the four genera of the genus Ganodermineae.
Ganodermiaceae has been cultivated since the ancient Roman era and is widely used worldwide.
The leaves are dark green in colour and contain the psychoactive plant THC.
Ganodermaceae contains the seeds of a variety of flowering plants, including dandelion, lemongrass and sweet basil.
The plants are edible, but it is thought that most people are not fond of its bitter taste and unpleasant aftertaste.
Ganotas are a variety from the same family.
Ganoda is a popular name for ganoderm.
The seeds contain THC and can be used as a tea or a spice.
Ganobas are from the genus Ginkgo.
Ginkgos contain a high amount of CBD, the psychoactivity-relieving compound found in cannabis.
In Ireland, Ginkos are sold as the Ganoderminum.
Ganodyne is a family of related species.
It is an herb that can be found in all over Europe and Asia, but is not found in Ireland.
The most popular Ganodynaceae is Gani, a variety that was originally grown in India and has been exported to Europe.
Ganogen is another variety from this species, also grown in Asia and Europe, and is sold in Europe as Ganodera.
Ganos and Ganoders are from different genera, but all are derived from the species Ganodermalae, and they are all psychoactive.
There are two other genera from the Ganodercaceae family, Ganodermyx and Ganodermus.
Ganodicone and Ganodeo are from another family, and are both psychoactive and have similar effects on the nervous system.
The plant also contains cannabinoids that can help to combat anxiety.
Ganodeos can also be used to treat pain and inflammation.
GANODERMATUS The leaves of Ganoderme have a green colour, with large white flowers.
The flowers are purple, and can contain a large amount of resin.
Ganodes are a popular herb, although not the most commonly grown in Ireland and the UK.
The dried leaves can be stored in a cup, or ground and mixed with ground herbs for a tea.
Ganose can also make an ideal tea.
It contains a high percentage of cannabidiol (CBD), the psychoactives of cannabis that helps to fight nausea, appetite loss and seizures.
Ganophilia is the name for a condition in which people who are allergic to the plant’s THC or other cannabinoids are sensitive to THC.
In some cases, people who suffer from this condition can also have hallucinations or have severe psychological issues.
Ganomis are the name given to the flowers that make up Ganodromae.
They have a pinkish green colour and can smell like chocolate.
The resin in the flowers can be eaten.

The pod can be consumed as a food.
GASTER MUSHROOMS The leaves, stems and pods of Gaskin are yellowish, green and white.
The capsules can also contain cannabigerol (CBG), the active ingredient in cannabis, which has anti-inflammatory and painkilling properties.
