History shows it was used by many ancient cultures such as the Middle Eastern, Chinese, Egyptian, Indian and Grecian.
More recently though in modern history, marijuana use in the medical field began to gain popularity in Western Civilization by the mid 19th century. The earliest recorded modern use reflects its benefits for treatments of muscle spasms, stomach cramps, sleeping aid, headaches, an anti-convulsive, and for relief of general pain. In fact, prior to its use becoming illegal in 1937, medical marijuana was effectively used in over 2,000 different medications to treat numerous maladies.
