hey are natural cannabis seeds dispersed

“Many early prejudices against marijuana were thinly veiled racist fears of its smokers, often promulgated by reactionary newspapers,” Warf wrote in his report. “Mexicans were frequently blamed for smoking marijuana, property crimes, seducing children and engaging in murderous sprees.”

A second psychoactive species of the plant, Cannabis indica, was identified by the French naturalist Jean-Baptiste Lamarck, and a third, uncommon one, Cannabis ruderalis, was named in 1924 by Russian botanist D.E. Janischevisky.

Cannabis plants are believed to have evolved on the steppes of Central Asia, specifically in the regions that are now Mongolia and southern Siberia, according to Warf. The history of cannabis use goes back as far as 12,000 years, which places the plant among humanity’s oldest cultivated crops, according to information in the book “Marihuana: The First Twelve Thousand Years” (Springer, 1980).

“Cannabis seeds have also been found in the remains of Viking ships dating to the mid-ninth century,” Warf wrote in the study.

“The idea that this is an evil drug is a very recent construction,” and the fact that it is illegal is a “historical anomaly,” Warf said. Marijuana has been legal in many regions of the world for most of its history.

From China, coastal farmers brought pot to Korea about 2000 B.C. or earlier, according to the book “The Archeology of Korea” (Cambridge University Press, 1993). Cannabis came to the South Asian subcontinent between 2000 B.C. and 1000 B.C., when the region was invaded by the Aryans — a group that spoke an archaic Indo-European language. The drug became widely used in India, where it was celebrated as one of “five kingdoms of herbs . which release us from anxiety” in one of the ancient Sanskrit Vedic poems whose name translate into “Science of Charms.”

Where did pot come from?

Currently, the legal status of cannabis in North Korea is unknown, but many believe it is legal. Surprisingly, wild cannabis is cultivated there. Though intriguing, this cannabis is inaccessible to us Westerners, for obvious reasons.

But as it has been passed down, the touch of human intervention has changed it. It has been propagated for its medicinal and/or psychoactive properties, leading to new strains.

There are fields of wild marijuana plants in the climate the plant grows the strongest: warm, tropical climates. The heat, humidity, and steady rainfall in tropical climates are ideal. This includes rainforests and savannahs.

During this time it was used to support the war effort during World War 2. The remnants of this practice have been left in its soil and have not been easy for authorities to stop the unintentional spread of wild cannabis.

Lebanon is the perfect temperate region in the Middle East for wild cannabis. The moderate weather allows Lebanon’s landrace Lebanese Red to thrive. The Middle East also has many dry climate regions where hardy cannabis strains can grow.
