For thousands of years, cannabis was not only legal but an important crop among cultures throughout history. It held commercial, medicinal, and spiritual value.
Cannabis flowers, seeds, buds, and roots have been used in the form of powder, oil, paste, drinks, edibles, and drugs to treat ailments since 2737 B.C.
Despite how long something has been around for (and it doesn’t get much longer than “thousands of years!”), trust is a funny thing. It takes considerable time to be built, and yet a mere matter of moments to be destroyed or questioned. Unfortunately, the breakdown of trust, in this case, was due to misinformation and fear.
Cannabis has been used widely across the world and the ages, from the sites where prehistoric hunters and gatherers lived, to ancient China and Viking ships. But political and racial factors in the 20th century led to the criminalization of cannabis in the United States.
Sagely, along with a handful of other cannabis brands, are actively trying to shed light on how the cannabis plant can provide effective and clean health benefits--a direct challenge to its categorization as a Schedule 1 drug.
Part of our mission is clearing up the confusion between hemp and marijuana as well as educating and raising awareness of the hemp compound CBD as the super-plant that it is.
And while we don’t think we should go back to ancient times and replicate how emperors once used the cannabis plant, what we can do is harness that historical data and pair it with modern day techniques and science.
So we invite you to join the groundswell of people becoming more informed about the relief and recovery benefits of the cannabis plant.
Because then together we can create the next chapter in the history book of cannabis use that we can all look back on with pride.
