Cannabis use has pervaded the globe and has over a 5,000-year track record of human use. The plant has been an integral part of medicine and ritualistic use worldwide and is a foundational tool for healing in numerous cultures.
Cannabis and hemp used to be a part of our society, diet, and agricultural system. The plant provides fiber to make textiles and its seeds give us nutrients. The flower, roots, and leaves are used as medicine. Cannabis was included as part of the herbal compendium in the USA, and pharmaceutical preparations contained cannabis for a wide variety of ailments in the early part of the 20th century. That changed in the 1930’s “Reefer Madness” era in the United States, where the plant was criminalized by the racist and anti-immigrant policies of Henry Anslinger. Since then, people have used the plant despite its legal status. Fortunately, we are seeing laws rapidly changing across the world, and more people are gaining access to the plant for medicinal use.
Cannabis is an incredible asset to integrate into your natural wellness toolkit. It is revered for its ability to alleviate a broad range of ailments in distinct ways from other botanicals or pharmaceutical preparations. Cannabis has major implications for virtually every area of medical science. This explains why cannabis is a widely versatile plant used by people across the world for thousands of years. Why does cannabis work for so many different kinds of ailments? It is due to its influence on the endocannabinoid system, perhaps one of the most important physiological systems involved in establishing homeostasis and maintaining health.
