annabis has been around a long time. Since at least the beginning of written history, probably before. In fact, it was one of the very first plants to be cultivated by humans. And so, as one might expect, there is a long list of cannabis users throughout history, some that may come as a surprise.
As marijuana rapidly gains legal and social acceptance, people are showing more interest than ever in the versatile flower. But what many people don’t know is that cannabis has deep roots in human history.
Ranging from medicinal to religious use, cannabis has been an important part of many different cultures across the globe. By looking to the past, we can gain insight into the deep value that cannabis has on humankind.
Have you ever wondered where the 420 association with marijuana came from? I’ve heard theories ranging from: it’s the date marijuana was decriminalized in the Netherlands, to its Hitler’s birthday (because when you think pot, you think Nazis, right?).

It has been said before, the body has everything it needs to heal. I believe this to be true, however, it may need a catalyst or the right ingredients to give it a little encouragement.
