Medical Marijuana has been utilized for healing purposes for many years. In America, Middle East, India and China the herb had been known to have pharmaceutical properties. Even in more recent times Queen Victoria and her physician did some revolutionary work into the medical use of marijuana. The herb had also been used widely in the United States before the Stamp Act in the 1920s and other marijuana laws. In the present day patients suffering from cancer, A.I.D.S, asthma, and many other diseases commend the benefits of marijuana use.
Cannabis Sativa or marijuana is an herb that grows wild in temperate climates. Before counterculture activists and teenagers were trying out cannabis, many Asian countries had long since added marijuana to their list of medicinal herbs. The earliest recorded use of this healing weed is amongst the Chinese. Emperor Shen-Nuan verified the therapeutic use of healing marijuana in the 28th century B.C. He wrote of its usefulness for curing gout, rheumatism, constipation, malaria and other sicknesses.
Medicinal weed can be utilized in many ways. Some medical marijuana is prepared by physicians as a liquid for drinking. Other health experts feel marijuana is more useful when it is ingested. Smoking is another way of reaping the healing properties of medical marijuana into the body of the individual who needs to be nursed back to health. Some marijuana specialists squash the weed and use it in a dressing or as an ointment.
