The History of Cannabis dates back to around 2800 B.C. and was used extensively in Chinese Medicine. Based on the evidence — especially the discovery that the human body is equipped with a cannabinoid system it appears our relationship with cannabis goes back to the very dawn of the human species. There are cannabinoid receptors in the brain, lungs, liver, kidneys, immune system and more. So, your body is already hard-wired to respond to cannabinoids through this unique receptor system. It is still not known how deep the impact on your body is but the receptors play a very important role in many of your bodily functions including metabolic regulation, pain, anxiety, bone growth, and immune functions. Cannabis always makes a comeback because it is good for us. I think it was put here for us. We have receptors all over our bodies just made for it. This plant can do so much more than just health-related things. It can be used to make paper, clothes, rope (the Navies around the world used them as they are very strong.)At the time of George Washington farmers were required to grow cannabis to supply the Navy with rope. Our first American Flag was made out of hemp. Think of the trees this will save. This beautiful plant could do so much for the world. Why it has been withheld for so many years? You have only to look to Big Pharma. for that answer and if they have their way, they will take it away again and make you have to get a prescription and then there is the threat of Bayer (Monsanto) needs to be stopped before they gain control and can use Glyphosate on the crops. This is bad for the human body and will again kill off the bees. Bees love Cannabis and it may be one of the things that can save the Bees! They are in danger and if they are no longer around we will not be either.
I am not a Doctor and you need to consult yours and you need to do research of your own. I have been researching for a long time!
In the 1930's Cannabis was legal. The depression was on as was Prohibition. Cannabis all of a sudden was banned. Listen to the podcast to find out why it was banned.
