CBD in ancient Mongolia and Siberia

The people of Mongolia and Siberia have been growing the C.S.L plant since 12,000 BCE. Some archaeologists believe that the plant was one of the first to grow and harvest when it all began. Archaeological evidence proves that the plant was an important part of the development of early civilization, used for everything from building, clothing, ropes and much more.

They have even discovered evidence that seeds and oils from the plant were a food source in China dating back to 6000 BCE. While there are many reasons to use it, its main use in China is believed to be medicine due to the positive effects that it had on suffering people.

Emperor Shen-Neng expanded the research into the plants medicinal value. Believed to be the first to document the plant as a medicine back in 2737 BCE he successfully treated pains that he was experiencing due to both rheumatism and gout.

Records from back then reveal that different parts of the plant had different uses. Like for example, the roots would treat blood clots and infections. There is even a book called Shu King that is dated 2300 BCE and it describes using the plant to treat a wide range of painful aliments including menstrual cramps.

CBD in ancient Asia

By 140 AD, the Chinese discovered how to combine the plant with wine in an attempt to use the mixture as an anaesthetic before surgeries and the results were great.

CBD in ancient India

Between 2000 and 1000 BCE, the Indians used the plant in both religious and annual celebrations in the form of a drink called Soma as well as another called Bhang. So, the first is similar to the Chinese’s use of infusing it with wine; however, Bhang, is an infusion with milk that in fact is still used in India to this day for both religious, medical and recreational reasons.

Pharaoh Ramses the II who reigned over Egypt from 1279-1213 BCE encouraged the use of the plants medicinal properties to treat the ill in his empire. Therefore, creating the first ever known topical cream. The Egyptians used their cream to relieve the pain associated with inflammation as well as the pains from giving birth. There are also believes that it could be used as a suppository to treat haemorrhoids. All of this from scrolls that date back to 2000 BCE.

CBD in ancient Middle East

Introduced to the Middle East between 2000 and 1400 BCE, a nomadic Indo-European group called the Scythians cultivated and used the plant for many medical aliments. In fact, they are the first to record using the plant successfully to treat epilepsy over 1000 years ago. They were also the first to bring the plant to Europe when they brought it to Germany about 2800 years ago.

CBD in ancient Greece

Just like in all other places that we have looked at, when the plant arrived to Greece in 200 BCE, medicine was its main use. Treating anything from earaches to period pains, the Greeks went a step further and began treating not just humans with the plant but also treating their animals, mainly their horses that got injured in battle. The roots of the plant treated burns, and the leaves treated sores on horses as well as nosebleeds in humans. The seeds worked great for tapeworms as well as combined with the leaves and water or wine to treat pain, inflammation and constipation.

CBD in ancient Rome

Records dated back to 22 AD reveal that the Romans used the plant to remove bugs from the ears and as a general pain relief. Furthermore, they continued using the plant throughout time and by the year 200, they had identified how it could be used to treat conditions like stomach pains, headaches, and dehydration.
