Cannabis – A plant like no other

 Freedom starts with knowledge

Humanity has been evolving with cannabis for over 14,000 years. From its nutritional values to its industrial usages, passing by medical applications and the famous “peace pipe”, it’s importance within our heritage is undeniable.

We believe that the first step to bringing back cannabis to its rightful place is education. Education on the cannabis plant itself, its history and known usages. 
For the past 70 years we have been implicitly taught that “hemp”, “marijuana” and now “medical cannabis” are different plants when in fact they’re all different strains of Cannabis.

This page will be in constant evolution as we will always be adding to the knowledge base. And if you have knowledge you want to share don’t hesitate to contact us.
