Celebrate Independence Day With A Legal Buzz

Happy Independence Day! Today we honor freedom, and what better way to do that than by celebrating legal cannabis? From flower to pre-rolls, it’s time to light up your 4th of July.

Before we dive into celebrating the red, white, and blue, let's first take a fun detour through the green—specifically, the history of cannabis in the U.S.

A Quick Spin Through Cannabis History

The Early Days Of Cannabis 

Did you know cannabis has been prevalent in America since the colonial days? Early settlers grew hemp in the 1600s and 1700s for its super-strong fibers, using it to make ropes, sails, and even clothing. George Washington and Thomas Jefferson were big fans—they even grew hemp on their plantations! 

Marijuana On Hold 

Fast forward to the 1800s, cannabis was the go-to for all sorts of medicines, curing everything from headaches to arthritis. But come the 20th century, things got a bit dicey. Racial prejudices and sensational media turned cannabis into the villain of the day, leading to the 1937 Marijuana Tax Act that effectively banned it. This period of fear and misinformation cast a long shadow until recent decades when advocacy and research began to restore its medicinal reputation.

The Green Comeback

The late 20th century saw cannabis making a comeback. Thanks to activists and new research, the medicinal benefits of cannabis came back into the spotlight. California led the charge in 1996 by legalizing medical marijuana. Today, cannabis is a booming industry. We even deliver legal cannabis directly to your doorstep! 

Fun Facts About Cannabis to Light Up Your Day

  1. Ancient Medicine: Cannabis has been used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years. Ancient Chinese texts from as early as 2900 BC mention the use of cannabis for pain relief.

  2. Presidential Puffs: Rumor has it that presidents like Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy might have enjoyed some cannabis, either for fun or to ease their ailments.

  3. Cannabis as Currency: In early American history, hemp was so valuable that it could be used as a form of currency in states like Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania.

  4. World War II Hero: During World War II, the U.S. government launched the “Hemp for Victory” campaign, encouraging farmers to grow hemp to supply the war effort with essential materials.

  5. Cannabis in Space: In 2020, researchers sent hemp plants to the International Space Station to study how they respond to microgravity. This research could pave the way for future space farming.
