Cannabis, a Dietary Essential

From the earliest medical texts, the Pen Ts’ao of ancient China, Cannabis has been referred to as a

‘Superior Healing Herb’

Queen Victoria’s personal physician, Dr Reynolds, stated in the Lancet that

Over 100 ‘phytocannabinoids’ have been identified within Cannabis, and there is overwhelming evidence to suggest that these ‘phytocannabinoids’ (Such as ‘THC***’ and ‘CBD****’) can
