Hello darling Flow friends,
Hope this finds you happy and well, today I'd like to journey down the rabbit hole, as we explore the history and therapeutic bounty of CBD products.
Throughout time the cannabis plant has been utilised for its strong fibres in fabric, and construction products, as it is one of the fastest growing plants, which is easy to propagate it is incredibly sustainable and a logical choice.
But today we deep dive in particular with the powerful Cannabidiol produced within the plants, also known as CBD oil, and touch on CBDs potent side kick THC, both have made a name for themselves throughout history.
"Mother earths medicine chest is full of healing herbs of incomparable worth"
A brief history of the use of CBD and THC to heal though out time
The medicinal use of CBD and TCH and its therapeutic uses to help heal dates back to 2737 BC, when Chinese Emperor Sheng Nung first started using it in his tea to help with his ailments like memory loss, malaria, arthritis and gout.
In ancient India, cannabis was used as part of traditional medicine practices for a variety of ailments. It was also used recreationally and spiritually as part of many Hindu religious practices. The use of cannabis in India dates back to at least 2000 BC.
Ancient Egyptians are also believed to have used cannabis for medicinal purposes. Cannabis pollen has been found on the mummy of Ramesses II, who died in 1213 BCE.
In ancient Greece, cannabis was used for a variety of purposes, including as a pain reliever and to treat inflammation. It was also used recreationally and was believed to have been consumed by athletes to enhance performance.
Many say that Queen Victoria used the substance to lessen the pain caused by her menstrual cramps too.
However, the therapeutic implications didn’t stick in the minds of the people, and over the course of time, lack of scientific evidence convinced those that believed in modern medicine to disregard the probable health benefits of CBD, until recent times! When we have fallen in love with this miraculous plant all over again!
