While decades of cannabis prohibition have led many to believe that the therapeutic benefits of CBD are a recent discovery. The first documented use of cannabis-derived medicine dates back to 2737 BC when Chinese Emperor Sheng Nung used a cannabis-infused tea to aid with a variety of ailments including memory, malaria, rheumatism, and gout.
