Cannabis has long been used for fiber (hemp), for medicinal purposes, and as a recreational drug.
Medical use
there has been considerable interest in its use for the treatment of a number of conditions, including glaucoma, AIDS wasting, neuropathic pain, treatment of spasticity associated with multiple sclerosis, and chemotherapy-induced nausea. A recent study has also concluded that cannabinoids found in Cannabis might have the ability to prevent Alzheimer’s disease. THC has been shown to reduce arterial blockages.
Currently he FDA does facilitate scientific investigations into the medical uses of cannabis.
Recreational use
Cannabis is a popular recreational drug around the world, only behind alcohol, caffeine and tobacco.
In the United States alone, it is believed that over 100 million Americans have tried Cannabis, with an additional 25 million Americans using it within the past year.
According to the UK medical journal The Lancet, Cannabis has a lower rate of dependence compared to both nicotine and alcohol,
and any Cannabis withdrawal symptoms are typically mild and are never life-threatening.
Religious use
Cannabis has being referred to in India as “food of the gods”, eventually becoming a ritual part of the Hindu festival of Holi.
In Buddhism, cannabis has been used in meditation and regarded as a holy plant since 500 BC. Shamanic use of Cannabis in China has been dated to at least 1000 BC.
Anointing oils mentioned in Exodus are said to contain Cannabis. Sufis have used Cannabis in a spiritual context since the thirteenth century
In modern times the Rastafari movement has embraced Cannabis as a sacrament.
Cannabis as art & fetish
the fervor and devotion for cannabis throughout history can now be summed up with imagery and artworks depicting the ongoing passion & debate for cannabis.
