📖the history of hemp part 2⁠

🦍it Is quite astonishing that cannabis use, in one form or another has practically been documented since the beginning of civilised human existence.⁠

✌️you may have previously thought that cannabis was first used in the hippie era of the 1970s as this is widely heard of…⁠

💉however, cannabis was actually used in ancient japan and china, ancient egypt, ancient greece, rome & india as a part of both medicine and spiritual tradition.⁠

🤮cannabis use was extremely popular in the middle ages due to its medicinal and psychoactive properties. It was used to treat epilepsy, pain, vomiting & nausea.⁠

🇨🇳interestingly, some of the first-known uses of cannabis in a major ancient culture came from china, where it was cultivated as early as 6000 BC. ⁠

👕it was not only used for medicine and spiritual purposes as mentioned but was also grown for fibre to make garments and ropes.⁠
