From prehistoric man, to ancient Chinese and The Vikings, cannabis has been used across the world for ages. Original naturally-occuring strains Cannabis Indica and Cannabis Sativa have been joined recently by Hybrid strains.
ORIGINS OF CANNABIS
Cannabis Indica is indigenous to high elevation mountainous regions in India, Nepal, Afghanistan, and Pakistan and was traditionally cultivated for the production of hashish for ritual, recreational and medical purposes.
Cannabis Sativa originated in tropical regions of Asia and Northern Africa, where it has been used throughout history as source of industrial fiber, seed oil, food, recreation, religious and spiritual moods and medicine.
Hybrid strains are the result of cross-breeding Indica and Sativa strains with the intention of creating faster-growing, hardier plants, and to produce various psychoactive properties.

THE HISTORY OF CANNABIS
Cannabis is a naturally occurring plant which has been used as an agent for achieving euphoria, religious ritual and medical purposes since ancient times. It was legal until the Marijuana Tax Act of 1937 which effectively banned its use and sales. While the Act was ruled unconstitutional years later, it was replaced with the Controlled Substances Act in the 1970’s in which cannabis was placed in the most restrictive Schedule 1 category.
