About Anorexia Nervosa…

I just wanted to pass on some historical information that may or may not be helpful.

Until 1932, if a girl started ‘pining’ the physician would prescribe Tincture of Cannabis, available at the pharmacy. A few drops in water and she would start eating.

To make a tincture, one measures a dry herb by volume, and covers it with the same volume of grain alcohol (like alcool, or vodka) in a covered jar. It is kept in a dark place and shaken daily. After 10 days it is filtered through an unbleached coffee filter into a sterile bottle. The typical dosage is then 3 drops in a glass of water, but may go up one drop at a time to 10 until the munchies occur.

Also, cannabis was one of the healing herbs in the Bible, so it is man’s law, not God’s, that prohibits its use.
