History of marijuana

History of hemp

We must admit that throughout human history there has not been a plant that is as popular and at the same time as suppressed as cannabis (Cannabis sativa). It meant a lot to different people. This is why the history of cannabis is so diverse. The idea of ​​banning cannabis has only been present in recent history. It has been legal in many countries of the world for most periods of history.

Industrial cannabis meant winning the war through the use of ropes, hunters used to hunt tigers, fishermen fish, and fashion designers used to decorate clothes with it. For the criminals, however, the last thing they did was touch their neck in the gallows. The farmers crushed the seeds and used the oil for the light, and the people in sorrowing threw the seeds into flames and mourned the sorrow with vapors.

The spread of cannabis worldwide

Hemp is said to have developed in the Central Asian steppes, presumably in present-day Mongolia and southern Siberia. The history of cannabis use dates back to 12,000 BC. This cannabis puts the edge of the first cultivated crop in human history. It probably flourished in human deposits of hunters and gatherers that were rich in nutrients and suitable for faster growth. In this area, burnt seeds of medicinal psychoactive cannabis were found in the burial piles in 3,000 BC. which were probably used occasionally in burials. They also found mummified plants of medical psychoactive cannabis in the tombs of Chinese noble families.

Medical and industrial cannabis in Europe

Arabs also brought hemp seeds to Europe, where the Romans in Sicily cultivated the plant for several centuries. It was used mainly for medical purposes, ropes and clothes. But medicine is far behind the Arab world. Venice was known for its gorgeous durable hemp fabrics that could almost mow down silk. Their ropes, however, contributed to superiority on the water.

For the Vikings and Germans, medical cannabis played a painful role against birth and toothache, says the University of Kansas professor of geography – Warf Barney. The seeds were found on Viking ships. The plant also slowly reached England, which became a maritime superpower in the 16th century. King Henry VIII. has ordered increased cannabis production to meet the need for ropes for the rising fleet. Because its farmers did not have such large production capacity, the British traded and colonized the lands crucial to maintaining the production of ships.

The beginning of the end of a positive opinion on medical cannabis

While some scholars maintained a positive attitude towards medical cannabis in the 19th century, the history of cannabis began to take its course when some began to express concern about the influence on the mind.

Cases of madness have begun to accumulate in India. Evidence was found in the increasingly crowded Indian madhouse with patients regularly consuming medical cannabis. For the sake of ease of controlling the Indian people, the UK has for the first time declared its negative position on medical cannabis. However, the survey was unfounded. The English later understood this, but public opinion was already saturated with a previous misconception that it was difficult to change.

One of the most comprehensive studies of the newly created Indian Hemp Drugs Commission (IHDC) has shown the latter. Of course, that occasional use does not, of course, leave any long-term consequences for the human mind, but everyday abuse is another story that, with a certain genetic predisposition, really fills the rooms of fools. Due to political interests, two out of three delegates did not approve the survey, and medical cannabis remained unpowered. From 1897 onwards, however, research moved to Britain, London and Cambridge. The same year, oil was discovered called “cannabinol” and resin was discovered. Over the next decade, several professors in Cambridge continued to research medical cannabis, and the rest of the population never dreamed of the existence of this plant and its characteristics.

In 1924, cannabis became part of the British list of dangerous drugs. The UK’s favorable price in India and elsewhere, and the sale of opium to the Chinese (similar to the Americans) has led to disapproval among countries around the world of opium sales and slightly less cocaine. The history of cannabis was also given to two Opium Conferences in 1924-25 after World War I. On the other, cannabis came in addition to other stronger drugs. The Pharmaceutical Society in 1924 puts the plant on the list of toxins – the history of cannabis has rushed into inevitable changes. The next incident, however, brings her to the government’s list of dangerous drugs.

Legalization of marijuana is coming

In each country, periods of affection and prohibition of use alternated. Thus, in the twentieth century, there was a strong movement against the use of cannabis in the United States because of its reach as young teens. Several presidents supported the fight against marijuana.

For the Western world, there are gradually times of greater affection, taking into account its healing effects without major side effects, unlike pharmacological products.
