Cannabis has long been shrouded in mystery and controversy. From medicinal use to being a gateway drug, opinions on cannabis have been varied and often conflicting. But now, thanks to modern science, we are starting to gain a better understanding of the plant and its effects.

Dr John Marsden’s documentary “Cannabis: A Secret History” offers insight into the historical and cultural significance of cannabis as well as examining its impact on our bodies and brains. As he travels from Kazakhstan (the birthplace of cannabis) to Europe and North America, Dr Marsden looks at how cannabis impacts different people in different ways; from those whose lives have been destroyed due to overuse or addiction, to those whose lives have been improved by the medicinal benefits it offers.

What’s more, this documentary also explores the evolutionary reasons for why humans are so sensitive to the effects of cannabis. By looking at the simple sea squirt – an ancient ancestor of ours – Dr Marsden reveals how our bodies are uniquely evolved to respond differently when exposed to this herb.

Given the complexity surrounding cannabis, “Cannabis: A Secret History” is a must-watch documentary for anyone interested in learning more about this highly misunderstood drug. It provides an informative look into the science behind cannabis while also highlighting various stories – both good and bad – associated with it. All in all, this documentary is an excellent way to gain a greater understanding of one of the world’s most popular drugs.
