The roots of the cannabis plant contain compounds called terpenoids and flavonoids, which have anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. They also contain a unique compound called cannabichromene (CBC), which has been found to have potential therapeutic benefits for a variety of conditions.

The use of roots in medicine dates as far back as 2700BCE with the herbalist Shennong pên Ts’ao ching stating that the cannabis root was dried and ground to form the basis of a paste used to reduce pain caused by broken bones or surgery

One of the most well-known traditional uses of cannabis roots is as a treatment for rheumatism and arthritis. The anti-inflammatory properties of the compounds found in the roots can help to reduce pain and inflammation in the joints, making it an effective treatment for these conditions.

Cannabis roots have also been used as a treatment for skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. The compounds found in the roots have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, which can help to reduce inflammation and redness in the skin.

In addition to these traditional uses, recent research has also suggested that cannabis roots may have potential therapeutic benefits for other conditions. Studies have found that the compounds found in the roots have anti-tumor properties, making them a potential treatment for cancer. They also have anti-anxiety and anti-depressant properties which can help with mental health.

It's important to note that cannabis roots are not currently used as a medication and are not available for purchase in most countries. It's also important to mention that the use of cannabis plants and its derivatives are still illegal in many countries and states, and the research is still not enough to support its use as a medicine.

However there are already many products available in the US where marijuana is currently legal.

In conclusion, cannabis roots have been traditionally used for medicinal purposes for centuries. They contain compounds that have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and analgesic properties that have been used to treat a variety of conditions such as rheumatism, arthritis, skin conditions and recent research suggest potential benefits for mental health and cancer. However, more research is needed to fully understand the therapeutic potential of cannabis roots and its derivatives, and it's important to consider the legal implications before its use.
