The medicinal use of cannabis dates back as early as 2737 BC, however, these applications have been lost in many parts of the world for the better part of a century. This is due to the fact that the use of cannabis was outlawed in the early 1900s, making scientific research difficult.
How does cannabis work when treating a disease? Scientific studies have revealed that cannabis has a very clear effect on the human body, but until -just over two decades ago, it wasn’t understood why. Since the discovery of endocannabinoid receptors and the endocannabinoid system, the use of cannabis in the treatment and/or management of a variety of medical conditions, diseases and their associated symptoms has been of great interest to medical researchers.
