Watch: “Cannabis: A Lost History”

What’s up, FAB readers?

Today, we’re sharing this fantastic and insightful cannabis documentary by YouTube user Chris Rice, for your stoned viewing pleasure. Much like civilisation itself, our friendly herbal medicine has a long and storied history; reaching all the way back into Ancient China (and perhaps even further).
