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).

According to the commonly accepted historical evidence, ‘ma’ (or ‘hemp’) was but one foundational staple in a selection of over 50 traditional plant medicines used widely throughout China at the time. From here, the plant quickly spread into India and across the Eurasian continent, gaining a sacred place within many religions and faiths.
