Herba Prima (pronounced erba preema) is Latin for “The First Herb”. The Cannabis plant has been used medicinally and functionally for thousands of years. Discovered by archaeologists in 2500-year-old ancient tombs in China, Cannabis is one of the earliest known herbs to have been utilized and revered by human kind. It’s documented use in Chinese literature for food, fiber and medicine goes back nearly 2000 years, as far back as the records go.
The First Herb is also a reference to the herbal revolution in the 1960’s when widespread cannabis use during the Vietnam War turned a generation on to the healing benefits of not only the Cannabis plant, but to all herbal forms of plant medicine. The movement towards utilizing the abundance of remedies that nature provides us has grown exponentially since then. Herbal medicine is reestablishing itself as the foundational method of achieving optimal health and well-being.
