CBD Fact #3.
Queen Victoria Took Cannabis Tinctures
It wasn’t too long ago when the UK was just coming to grips with CBD being a viable product for legal medicinal use. However, medical cannabis was already used at the country’s highest seat of power over a hundred years ago.
Her Royal Majesty Queen Victoria suffered from painful menstrual cramps. To ease her monthly malady, her private physician Sir J. Russell Reynolds administered cannabis. She took it in concentrated liquid form, much like how CBD is commonly used today as tinctures.
