Since the 1970’s, when the UN, encouraged by politician’s paranoia, declared a War on Drugs, the prevailing attitude has been ‘Drugs Are Bad’. Which has obscured the fact that drugs, such as cannabis, have actually been used for hundreds of years to treat conditions like pain. For instance, archeologists have found ample evidence that cannabis was used in ancient Egypt. Shiva, one of the most important Gods in the Hindu religion, is holding a joint in one of her 6 hands. It was used by Queen Victoria to treat period pain. The list goes on.

We believe that understanding this history is an important aspect in the argument for the acceptance of cannabinoids in medicine. 

This article is an introduction to the long and proven history of cannabis used as medicine. It highlights the discovery of cannabis in tombs and burial grounds throughout the world. 

Get Involved to Earn Tokens

Our starter guides & articles are written by and for our community. They’re intended as “dynamic”articles, similar to a Wiki, meaning they’re intended to be updated as and when new information becomes available. We found that AI such as ChatGPT can write a good first draft, as long as an editor checks it first. However, we invite our community to collaborate to make the information as comprehensive as possible. In return, you can earn Tokens that get you discounts and voting rights.

If you’d like to earn Tokens by editing articles, please apply for a role.

If you have a proposal to write an article, an earn tokens for your efforts, please make a Proposal.
