Cannabis is a natural plant with a rich tradition of use, both recreational and medicinal, that dates back some 12,000 years. Across cultures globally, this plant has provided healing, enhanced spirituality, and promoted social connection and intimacy. Cannabis was added to the US Pharmacopeia in 1850 where it was commonly used by physicians until it was outlawed in the 1930s. Today we’re able to return to the historical practices that understood cannabis for its incredible social and physical benefits.

In cannabis, hundreds of active compounds called cannabinoids work in tandem to create the myriad beneficial effects that are associated with the plant. The two most important being Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD). THC is often associated with the “high” feeling we experience with cannabis, whereas CBD is non-psychoactive and affects the nervous system to promote relaxation. CBD and THC work together to create an “entourage effect” that helps to elevate how we feel.
