Marijuana has been described as a gateway drug to more dangerous drugs, yet its medicinal properties and healing benefits are compelling.
What is Cannabis?
Cannabis is a natural herb that’s been used as a medicine for centuries. Earliest records point to a legendary Chinese emperor and herbalist, next Egyptian pharaohs used it for the treatment of tumors, followed by the ancient Greeks who utilized it as a poultice to heal the wounds and sores of their horses after battle. More recently, cannabis was listed in the U.S. Pharmacopeia until 1942, before it was discredited by the federal government and given the name ‘marihuana’ to scare the public from its use.
