The ancient Assyrians, Persians, Greeks, Romans, and East Indians used the drug to control muscle spasms, reduce pain, and to treat indigestion.
As early as 1611, marijuana was cultivated for its fiber in Jamestown, Virginia. In 19th century America, the medical profession for treating spastic conditions, headaches, labor pains, insomnia, and menstrual cramps used it. It is still used as a medicine in the Middle East and in Asia.
