CannabisFilter: Is hemp tea really a traditional remedy?

I've heard from two people recently that cannabis tea is a traditional remedy back in their home countries in the Caribbean and in the Philippines. I know about Indian bhang
, but that doesn't seem related. Let me explain.

I work in home care and have heard it on the authority of some caregivers that cannabis tea can be used to help relieve symptoms at the end of life, including those associated with dementia and delirium. I just can't seem to find any corroborating information online. And I'm not even sure to what extent bhang is used as a remedy even in India where it's quite well known.
So where is cannabis or hemp tea used traditionally as medicine? And for what conditions?
Anecdotes, vague memories, the stories of friends of friends, any information appreciated. Thanks mefites!
