Cannabis gets a bad press, even though it has been a valued herbal medicine for thousands of years. It was widely used medicinally until the 20th century but pressure from pharmaceutical companies resulted in it being outlawed, despite its well-documented medicinal uses.

It is also very low in the psychoactive compounds
