How Far Back Does Cannabis Use Go?

  • It may surprise you to know that cannabis was first discovered in Ancient Egypt, where people used hemp rope and clothing made from hemp fibers around 1500 BC. And Ancient Hebrews actually consumed cannabis as part of their ceremonial religious practices, a practice that continues today in the Kabbalistic sects of the Hebrew religion.

  • In 1619, King James I of England, declared that growing hemp was illegal due to new trade agreements with countries who felt threatened by the competition hemp posed to the resources they produced like cotton wool. Many farmers who relied on their cotton or wool trade protested those who were growing what they called hemp “weed” crops for income which competed with and threatened their livelihoods.
