From 2300 B.C.

That was the first documented use of cannabis as a medicine.

Chinese emperor Shen Nung prescribed chu-ma (cannabis) for the treatment of constipation, gout, beriberi, malaria, rheumatism and menstrual cramps.

Oh, and by the way, Queen Victoria used cannabis to relieve menstrual pain.
