EcoMyths: Busting The Myth That Cannabis Is Just For Getting High

We may not always think about the sources of our medicines, building materials or office supplies. Often, it's a plant.

When we think of cannabis, we tend to think of a recreational drug, but it too, is a plant. And one with many forms and applications. Hemp is a type of cannabis that’s been called the “plant of 25,000 uses.” 

For our Monthly EcoMyths segment, we're starting a series called, “What the Plant?” with Kate Sackman of EcoMyths Alliance and Jonathan Page, adjunct professor at the University of British Columbia’s Botany Department. He’s also co-founder, CEO and president of Anadia Labs, a company that researches cannabis genomics and breeding. They’ll give us the history of the plant that’s been used in so many ways for millennia.
