Recently Uncovered – 1930s Map of US Medicinal Plants for Pharmacists

Modern medical science relies heavily on pharmaceuticals to treat patients. In fact, the use of medicinal plants has become taboo and is often labeled (incorrectly) as pseudo-science.

There was a time in American history when big-Pharma did not have such an influence on doctors, pharmacists, or medicine. During this time, pharmacists actually prepared medicinal plants for people in need to treatment.

This recently uncovered medicinal plant map was printed by the National Wholesale Druggists’ Association over 80 years ago. It was intended to boost the image of the profession during a promotional campaign called Pharmacy Week.

The medicinal map shows which herbs grow in which state (or as they grew in 1932). It also lists the medicinal uses of each plant.

In the late 1930s and through the 1940s, a rise in synthetically produced and mass marketed drugs began to hit the market. This marked a transition from pharmacists physically preparing medicines to pharmacists counting out pre-made medicines.

This poster show the end of an era, before the profession made the shift to dispensing drugs produced by large corporation and away from preparing plants for those in need of their medicinal properties.

Amazon also has a more modern map available, World Map of Medicine Plants.

Can anyone recommend other resources (books, documentary etc.) to view old documents of when plants were mainsteam medicine ? I’ve seen some old doctor’s briefcases at various museums and they are loaded with plant remedies.

Look for the Ministry of Healing (The Book of Health and Happiness) by: Ellen G. White. It has all you need to know about what we need to survive and live a healthy the way God intended for us to live. I hope this helps… It’s a Seventh Day Advent message.

Medicinal plants also often contain more than one bioactive agent. Cannabis, for example, has over 60. The two best studied are THC and CBD.
