How Long Has Topical Cannabis Been Used?
According to a pollen study, Cannabis, also known as hemp or marijuana, evolved about 28 million years ago on the eastern Tibetan Plateau.
Written records date Human use of Cannabis for oil, rope, clothing, and paper to the third millennium BC, archaeological evidence goes back way further.
Outrageously in the 1920’s and 30’s, a conspiracy evolved to prohibit not just Marijuana which contains psychoactive THC, but also ALL Industrial Hemp which cannot get you high.
Reefer Madness was just a smokescreen so that America’s Robber Barons could profit by replacing all hemp paper, hemp oil, and hemp cloth with wood-pulp, petroleum, and cotton.
No one understood the health impacts until recent research in Isreal revealed how through evolution the central nervous systems of all humans, our pets, and even our livestock have been hardwired with specific receptors for the CBDs we all used to get from Hemp.
So much so that for the proper balance of several biological systems, we all need to go back to our roots and consume Hemp in pretty much any form we can get it.
CBD has been likened to Vitamin C: if we don’t get it, we get sick.
Because of the unnatural and ultimately harmful policies of cannabis prohibition, most beings today suffer, in a myriad of ways, from Cannabinoid Deficiency.
As a medicinal component of traditional topical salves and oral tincture remedies, Cannabis is documented in ancient Egypt, Europe and parts of Africa as an antiseptic, antibiotic, and pain reliever.
Topically, CBD absorbs into the skin and is really successful when liberally applied to the affected area(s).
When using topicals, be sure to first wash the area with soap and water to remove any excess dirt, oil buildup, or previously applied CBD lotions or topical creams. Doing so will ensure that there aren’t any barriers between the ointment and your skin, creating the best environment for absorption.
For adults, generously rub the ointment onto the affected area and allow it to absorb for several minutes before covering with clothing and/or bandages so it doesn’t rub off. Be sure to watch the area for bad reactions like itchiness, redness, soreness, rashes or bumps.
For children and the elderly, apply smaller amounts so they don’t over-medicate since their skin is naturally thinner.
Once applied, the ointment can take anywhere from 1-48 hours to provide relief, depending on the dosage, how often it’s used, and the severity of your condition.
