Did you know that over one hundred and fifty herbal and homeopathic remedies are used in America alone? Of course, this doesn’t include the many thousands of “natural treatments” that are dispensed at traditional healing centers. It’s safe to say that most if not all of these herbs and natural cures have been used successfully by mankind throughout the history of time. They’ve been used for everything from simple fever and cold remedies to the modern-day drugs we take every day.
For example, did you know that there are dozens of natural remedies that are classified as hemp pill medicines? In fact, there are at least a dozen such herbs that can be used interchangeably with hemp in the treatment of a variety of medical problems. Medical marijuana is one of these. It’s not a coincidence that many of today’s most popular marijuana strains were developed by scientists who spent years studying the properties of hemp.
Other examples of hemp-based remedies are: chaste berry, Indian Ginseng, Holy Basil, Lemon Balm, Holy Basil tea, and Red Clover. These are only a few of the hundreds of herbs and natural cures that can be used successfully along with hemp. Even more interesting is that there is growing evidence that the ingredients used in these substances are completely identical to those used centuries ago in America. That means that the potential for treating patients with these ancient remedies using today’s advanced science is extremely high. It’s just that the technology hasn’t reached the stage yet that it could.
One reason why this potential is so exciting is that it shows the tremendous potential of what we already know about nature. Just like plants and animals use the same basic principles of the biochemistry of nature, humans do as well. Therefore, if we can find a way to understand how the human body works and then design a drug or therapy that mimics the biochemistry of the body, then it stands to reason that the potential for curing many of today’s ailments is greatly increased.
Another aspect of hemp’s potential uses in medicine is that it’s extremely durable and strong. There is no need to worry about breaking hemp down into essential parts for the different drugs and therapies it supports. Also, hemp is resistant to a variety of common plant diseases and toxins. So even if hemp doesn’t cure a particular disease right now, it has the potential to in the future.
