For over 5,000 years, cannabis has been used for natural and holistic healing. Its use goes back to the foundation of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Chinese emperor Shen Nung – considered the father of Chinese Medicine – and the discovery that the healing benefits of the sacred plant once formed the backbone of medical practice.

A History of Cannabis

In ancient Egypt, cannabis was used to treat glaucoma, inflammation, and a host of other ailments. Cannabis pollen was even found on the mummy of Ramses II, who died in 1213 BC. Etymologists (those who study historic languages) believe that Hebrew writings from the book of Exodus describe cannabis extract as a primary ingredient in holy anointing oil.

Medical cannabis was also widely used in the Middle East. As far back as 1000 BC, it was used in India to treat a host of ailments, especially as an analgesic. The Venidad (an ancient Zoroastrian holy text) lists cannabis as the most important of nearly 10,000 healing plants. In Ayurveda, cannabis was considered a powerful healing agent and was recommended for treating the symptoms of depression.

Greek and Roman cultures used cannabis for ear pain, edema, inflammation, gout, malaria, memory loss, and sexual dysfunction. In 79 AD, Pliny the Elder – a naturalist and natural philosopher of the Early Roman Empire – wrote the Naturalis Historia in which he recommends cannabis for treating cramped joints, gout, and violent pain.
