For at least 6000 years, hemp has been used culturally as a fiber supplier, food and luxury food, but its versatile medicinal qualities were also discovered early on. It had a firm place in Pharaonic, Assyrian, ancient, Islamic and medieval medicine. In Chinese and Tibetan medicine its euphoric, antidepressant properties are valued, in Ayurveda it is praised as a panacea and aphrodisiac. But our Germanic-Celtic ancestors also used the plant medicinally. Hildegard von Bingen used them just like Samuel Hahnemann, the founder of homeopathy.
In modern medical and pharmacological research, the earlier and ethnobotanical uses of the hemp plant are now being tested and largely confirmed.
This book traces the history and importance of hemp in various medical systems and teachings, and gives a wealth of practical uses and recipes.
