THE NATIONAL FORMULARY -- 1888 (1st Ed)
Selected Cannabis Related Sections:
By 1888, when the first edition of the N.F. (National Formulary) came out, Cannabis was well established within the pharmaceutical community. It was used in the manufacture of bromide's, neuralgic tablets, and even as an ingredient in corn remdies etc. Its use for these purpose would continue right up into the early 1940s, when, due to political not medical pressure, it was officially removed from both the U.S. Pharmacopoeia, and the National Formulary.
