Transforming Ancient Molecules into Modern Miracles

History records that cannabis has been in continuous use as a medicinal treatment for nearly 5000 years. Despite prohibition, people have continued to use cannabis as a therapeutic treatment, reporting unique heath benefits.

In recent years patient activists, backed by a sympathetic public have challenged the prohibition of medical cannabis all over North America.  With the relaxation of research barriers, scientists have discovered more than 80 medically significant cannabis compounds – molecules that promise entirely new targeted therapies.
