Cannabis, in many cases referred to as marijuana, has had a negative reputation for decades. Now, scientists have discovered the different health benefits of this plant – especially benefits of medical marijuana – which further proves that there are many misconceptions about marijuana’s place in society that need to be cleared with the general public.
Cannabis plants are believed to have evolved on the steppes of Central Asia, specifically in the regions that are now Mongolia and southern Siberia. The history of cannabis use goes back as far as 12,000 years, which places the plant among humanity’s oldest cultivated crops. Both hemp and psychoactive marijuana were used widely in ancient China. The herb was used as an anesthetic during surgery, and stories say it was even used by the Chinese Emperor Shen Nung in 2737 B.C.
Cannabis was widely used for medicine and spiritual purposes during pre-modern times. For example, the Vikings and medieval Germans used cannabis for relieving pain during childbirth and for toothaches. Over the centuries people used the plant for all kinds of purposes – pain relief, meditation, ancient surgery and relaxation. Let us all for a moment forget society’s negative thoughts on cannabis, and remember how sacred this plant was to our ancestors.
