History of treating malaria with cannabis
Cannabis has a long history of use against diseases that cause symptoms of fever, such as cholera, rabies and tetanus. There are documented instances of use by ancient cultures including those of China and India; anthropologists have also documented traditional use which persists to this day among some African and Southeast Asian populations.

The early Chinese literature makes reference to cannabis being used as a treatment for malaria. Summarising its therapeutic properties, the Pen T’sao Ching states that cannabis ‘clears blood and cools temperature’, a reference to cannabis’ ability to reduce fever.

In Cambodia, individuals infected with malaria were traditionally treated with cannabis; such use may persist to this day, in some regions. Reportedly, the smoke from one kilogram of male and female plants is inhaled twice daily until the fever has passed. Occasionally, an alternative method is employed, whereby a preparation of cannabis and water is administered orally in two-millilitre doses prior to each meal. However, this method is held to be less effective.

In Africa, cannabis is reported to have been used by Zimbabwean traditional healers as a remedy for malaria, as well as for blackwater fever, a potentially-fatal complication of the disease. It is believed that traditional cannabis-based medicines continue to be in use among rural populations both in Africa and in Southeast Asia.

Cannabis has only been illegal since 1930s. Before that you could find it in every pharmacopoeia throughout the world. When Henry Ford began making vehicles, he envisioned a car built from cannabis powered by cannabis.

My suspicion was right. I knew there was something driving the long articles of late.
