At first there was the grass . It's true that cannabis is about as old as dinosaurs. In fact, Cannabis dispensaries plants thrived in a Jurassic climate. The sacred grass was there long before humanity. But as soon as we arrived, a symbiotic relationship was formed and it continues to this day. Keep on read the article to find out the new and latest technology.


We know that Chinese Emperor Shen Nong tinkered with cannabis tinctures, but cannabis was probably cultivated by many ancient civilizations. Humans have an endocannabinoid system wired for cannabinoids. With zero deaths since the dawn of civilization, cannabis is the original natural medicine. Let's travel back in time and discover the historical highlights of cannabis use.

"Ma", the monosyllabic term for Cannabis dispensaries , probably makes it the "mother" (homophone in Chinese) of agriculture. This hardy, annual plant has allowed agro-industrial China to be well ahead of hunter-gatherer civilizations, as hemp is a reliable source of food and a durable textile fiber. In addition to its medicinal and textile use, hemp has been used in China as the second or third most important source of food for millennia: hemp seeds are rich in protein, vitamin B and amino acids.

Excavations in Egyptian ruins dating back to minus 1600 have revealed evidence that cannabis was used medicinally, and excavations in Hebrew sites have proven the use of cannabis as an aid in childbirth a century BC, but "Ma" ( cannabis) has truly been the foundation of Chinese culture from the dawn of time to the present day.

The importance of hemp in ancient China is expressed by the discovery of a hemp cloth in a burial site of the Zhou dynasty (1122-1249 BC). The Book of Rites (around minus 200) mentions that bereaved people must wear hemp cloth in order to express respect for the deceased and this tradition has survived to the present day.

One of the most important invention in China around 200 BC is hemp paper and, although the secret of its manufacture has been kept secret for almost 9 centuries, it quickly became indispensable to the development of all civilizations in the world. The medical and industrial uses of hemp, however, were deeply rooted in China many millennia before and have made China known as "the land of mulberry and hemp".

Healers in ancient China tried to cure all kinds of illnesses by hitting their patients' headboards with Cannabis dispensaries stalks decorated with representations of snakes while reciting spells and incantations in order to exorcise demons who were believed to be responsible for physical illnesses. Japanese Shinto priests used undyed hemp fibers tied to a short wand in a similar ceremony with the idea that the purity of white hemp could cast out demons. Rational thinking might lead us to view this coincidence as pure superstition, but wouldn't it be interesting to know the origin of rituals with such great longevity?

A Chinese emperor who ruled around 2800 BC, Shen Nong, was deified as the introducer of medicine to mankind. It is said of this mythical emperor that he had a translucent abdomen and that he ate more than 70 planes per day in order to observe their effects and their qualities. The compilation of the thousands of remedies he identified is called the Ben Cao and it is one of the oldest medical texts.

According to Ben Cao, the flowers of the female cannabis plant contain the greatest amount of Yin energy: in Chinese philosophy and medicine, "Yin" is associated with female attributes, as opposed to "Yang", l male creative element. Ma-fen (flowers of the female cannabis plant) were used to counteract loss of Yin, such as menstrual fatigue, rheumatism, malaria, beriberi, constipation and distraction.

In the Ben Ca it was written that too much consumption of hemp seeds could cause the vision of demons, but on the other hand a repeated and continuous consumption of these seeds could allow to come into contact with the spirits. The cultivation of hemp for clothing and other textiles by the Chinese was also taught to them by Shen Nong and this agricultural art is still practiced in rural areas of China.


In order to induce visions, Taoist alchemists inhaled the smoke of Cannabis dispensaries seeds burnt in the first century AD. These visions were seen as a means of attaining immortality, and the herb was held to rejuvenate body and mind. A famous surgeon from the second century CE, Hua To, performed complicated surgeries using Ma-yo, a mixture of hemp resin and wine, as an anesthetic. Using Ma-yo, the operations were relatively painless, even the amputations. In the tenth century Ma treatments were used to treat cold fever, to facilitate childbirth, to cure rheumatism and to cleanse the blood.
