What is the history of marijuana?

 
The marijuana, cannabis, or hemp plant is one of the oldest psychoactive plants known to humanity. Cannabis has become one of the most widespread and diversified plants. It grows as a weed and is a cultivated plant all over the world in a variety of climates and soils. Cannabis preparations have been used as remedies for thousands of years, and the active ingredients of the hemp plant can be put to use in a multitude of medical conditions. Nature produces a wide range of medicinal and psychoactive compounds, and humans have used many of them for thousands of years,

A native of central Asia, cannabis may have been cultivated as long as ten thousand years ago, it was used for healing purposes , religious purposes and for recreational, It was certainly cultivated in China by 4000 B.C. and in Turkestan by 3000 B.C. It has long been used as a medicine in India, China, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, South Africa, and South America. Unlike most plants and fungi that contain psychoactive chemicals, the hemp plant (the dried leaves and flowers of which are marijuana) has many practical uses. Since as long ago as 8000 B.C.E. hemp has been manufactured into ropes, clothing, mats, and a variety of other useful articles. The first unambiguous written mention of hemp being used for medicinal purposes appears in the Rh-Ya, a fifteenth century B.C.E. Chinese pharmacopeia. The Atharva Veda, a compilation of Hindu hymns and scripture that first was reduced to writing ca. 700 B.C.E., speaks of hemp as a sacred plant because a guardian angel (Deva) lives in its leaves (Marijuana Medicine: A World Tour ) Favorable mentions of hemp under a variety of names but never marijuana, appear in the early records of many societies, particularly in Asia and South Asia.  

Hemp probably originated in Central Asia and spread with human migration and trade. Shreds of hempen cloth and other hemp products have been found in archaeological sites in Asia, Africa, and Europe. Certainly by the thirteenth century C.E., and probably much earlier, hemp was used as a material throughout most of Europe. It is likely that in most places where hemp was used as a material, it was also used for its physical and psychoactive effects

The qualities that made hemp commercially valuable were strength and durability. Hemp ropes were sturdy, long-lasting, and resistant to stretching, and were used on sailing ships for centuries, notably the Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria on which Columbus sailed in 1492.

       In the mid-sixteenth century the Spanish introduced the plant into the Americas in what is today Chile, and it spread north from there. In colonial days, the growing of hemp for manufacturing use was widely encouraged, and was mandated by law in the colony of Virginia in 1619. Hemp horticulture remained common in the United States until after the Civil War. Up through to the early 1900s, extracts made from the leaves and flowers of the hemp plant were found in many patent medicines.

 In the 20th century cannabis became demonised and an ilegal substance by Harry J. Anslinger. He was the first head of the Bureau of Narcotics, created by Congress in 1930 . He had a life long crusade against a plant that had been used harmlessly for centuries in medicine and in a social media, today its coming back as a researched and very positive herb against a plethora of medical problems, its non addictive attributes make it the ideal medicine for children as much as adults, a lot is still to be done to find out its full potencial but at least it is now being legalised and freed after so many years of corrupt and zealous misinformation, its posible uses could finally make it the main drug to cure our society .

Are marijuana cremes a good option for muscular pain and skin problems ?

When you take an aspirin  for a headache you are not healing the headache, or you use cream for a muscle spasm you are dealing with the pain and not curing the problem. If you have asthma and use an inhaler you are not being cured of your illness, you are covering up a symptom of it. So really all you are doing is delaying the  pain until the problem recur's. Not all medicine is meant to heal .We believe with CBD and medical Marijuana a cure can be achieved, with proper diet /nutrition and CBD oil's and derivatives ,illness's like arthritis and joint pain, anxiety attacks, and is even anti-epiletic .One medicine for ten problems, not ten medicines for one problem . So as conventional medicine does not have a cure for these illness's we believe that CBD oil can and does not only have a palliative effect but can cure the condicion.

Question's and Answer's 

This study  into the neuropathic pain associated with multiple sclerosis found that a THC/CBD spray was effective at treating the pain.

A study into Sativex, which is a cannabis extract made by GW Pharaceuticals and sold at a very expensive price showed it was also effective for the “treatment of symptoms of multiple sclerosis, notably spasticity and neuropathic pain, as well as the treatment of neuropathic pain of other aetiologies” So for neck and back pain it can be a worthy treatment. CBD is a wonderfully powerful and unique pain killer. Also a good place to begin is with tinctures and or cremes made up with high CBD strains which can work wonders for muscle and neck pain.

Is Using Medical Marijuana Safe?

This question has a lot of pro's and con's and is a lot more complicated than you might think. To date there is still a lot of clinical investigations to find out the exact truth to this question . But things are looking very positive and the hundreds of clinical trials and tests done show it to be a very positive and safe medication to take . To put it in the most understandable terms possible, it is scientifically proven that marijuana is safer for you than either nicotine or alcohol. In the case of alcohol, marijuana is actually more than 100 times safer for you, but this, of course, does not mean that it is totally  safe. Marijuana is slowly becoming legalized across the world from the U.S.A to Europe , even in Israel there is much investigation going on and they are becoming the pioneers in it's medical use and are making positive discoveries week by week, and it is obvious why , basically  because of the health benefits it offers to those who use it and have been using it even though it has been illegal. The most common medical use for marijuana is for people suffering from some form of slight psychotic illness including anxiety, depression or stress, but there are physical benefits to the drug as well. Marijuana can be used to help treat and even prevent cancer , glaucoma and muscular problems , and it is an excellent form of medication for those suffering from intense or debilitating pain. As the drug becomes more popular and is slowly legalized across countrys of the world that it was once outlawed it as a demon drug we find new health benefits are being discovered almost every day.

Of course, like all good things, there are drawbacks to marijuana as well. But this can be down to abuse of the plant, abuse with anything, like alcohol or even food, if it is abused it can lead to major problems . Although there is no research that indicates occasional marijuana use leads to any health issues, there are issues with long-term and heavy marijuana consumption, generally  heavy smokers . Issues include memory capacity, loss of short term memory and respiratory problems , even saying that , there is proof in the older generation that it produces a regenerating effect to the brain, so abuse of marijuana in the younger generation can be the reason for memory problems and even, in the most severe of cases it is said that schizophrenia can be caused by consuming marijuana but it is not proven, but this could also be because of  already underlying problems and abuse of the plant as a form of heavy recreation. Other than these few problems mentioned there is little that is negative in its use. As to date using marijuana in a medical sense has proved to be very safe and no one has ever died from using it .

More testimony's on the value of CBD 

NO ! Our products contain less than 0.2% THC, so you will not get high.it is believed that this non-psychotic component reduces and regulates the effects of THC. This means that species that contain THC and CBD causes a much lighter non noticeable high than THC like species, which contain very little CBD.

According to the latest research, Cannabidiol (CBD) may be a feasible option for people who have trouble sleeping. This study administered different dosages of CBD to groups of rats and compared their sleep habits to control rats that did not receive CBD. The results showed that CBD correlated with larger amounts of total sleep time. The rats were also less likely to fall asleep during the “light period” during daytime, meaning that they did not simply doze off, but seemed to achieve a more normal sleep cycle after CBD usage .Not everyone has insomnia for the same reasons. For instance, one person may not be sleeping because they have pain related to inflammation. If you bring the inflammation down with a high CBD product, they may be able to get a good night’s sleep every night. In other instances,these results are exciting and give promise to more investigation tinctures with a mixture of THC/CBD could be the perfect answer , cannamed cbd oil's hemp health product's  cbd oil cure the illness

These cremes and ointments are made from infusing high-quality cannabis flowers, not hemp, with a quality oil ,coconut or olive oil which extracts the active compounds, either CBD, THC, or both depending on the type of cannabis used. This oil is then blended with other therapeutic herbs,  or  essential oils, that are well-known pain relievers.If the strain used is high in CBD and THC it will give a relaxing and comforting sensation on the skin and muscle, and as it is absorbed into the skin there is no danger of becoming intoxicated by the THC as it isn't taken into the blood stream.

 The other positive thing about these cremes is that it is all natural ingredients, If you read the ingredient list, often everything in the jar is straight from mother earth. As long as that's indeed the case with the creme, the formula is immensely safe, chemically, as all the ingredients are organic , and since they're formulated to be topical—absorbing into the top layer of skin—and not transdermal which would pass through the skin and into your bloodstream—there's no risk of getting high.

When it comes to cannabis-based topicals for muscle soreness or other pain relief, there's absolutely no reason why it should be prohibitive as it is not a drug as such and has no intoxicating properties. Our creme is made of the highest CBD strains and we have had many reports from our patients happy with its results and keep coming back for more.

 It can be effective against skin problems, psoriasis , dermatitis and itchy skin syndromes as it has a smoothing and calming effect, specially when formulated with pure virgin olive oil or virgin coco oil and other natural ingredients such as aloe or chamomile and of course  having an anti ageing effect due to antioxidants contained in the natural oils and marijuana.

It all depends on each individual.So assuming you vape high CBD cannabis, you'll feel the effects more or less instantly although the full effect will take 10 minutes or so and last for 2 to 3 hours. And edibles will take 30 to 120 minutes usually, depending on what else you eat, and last for 4 to 6 hours.On the other hand, if you are looking forward to the effects of CBD over a longer period of time, then uniform absorption of it is going to be a better option. Under such circumstances, it is highly recommended to use CBD topically in which case the absorption via skin is going to be slower and uniform and the effects are going to be long lasting.We find that using CBD oil sublingualy as a continuous regular treatment works better than using it sporadically and a build up of its effects are also longer lasting.
