TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE
~HOW MARIJUANA HAS BEEN USED FOR CENTURIES~
Westerners have been led astray by a medical profession that requires us to wait for illness and then get treated for it.
But awareness is changing – more Westerners are taking responsibility for their health and are looking for treatment options.
Traditional Chinese Medicine offers a range of practices that use concepts based on a tradition that’s 5,000 years old.
This medicine includes forms of herbal medicine, massage (tui na), exercise (tai chi), dietary therapy and acupuncture.
Many people are familiar with acupuncture and its uses, but most are not familiar with its connections to Cannabis.
Research is confirming that acupuncture works with the endocannabinoid system, as does Cannabis.
It is not a stretch to think that if you are treating pain/inflammation with Cannabis, adding acupuncture might ease your pain.
~Cannabis has a long history in TCM~
Cannabis is one of the 50 “fundamental” herbs of TCM, and is prescribed to treat diverse symptoms.
Cannabis, called má, means “hemp; Cannabis; numbness” in Chinese, and was used by the Emperor Shen Nung, who was a pharmacologist.
