History of the devils lettuce....... Open forum
Percy's as a collective we are unique never have we seen such intelligence in one place tbh , so seeing as its for information lets see what we can suss out together .Me all for science backed fact and as a opener did intend on a huge paragraph but build it and they will come here , so far i am at here the picture illustrates no route via water , this route is old and 600 BC has been dated by the ash , Part that gets me exited is the ash shows selective breeding then ,
Type of plant used differed from use , ceremonial ash had previously missed the cannabis , mainly due to the similarity to hops ,and juniper ? this example below is how it was used
so how far can we go back ? who knows , but the silk road went from the illustration above to bellow in 400 years
@woolieback Has there been much actual evidence they can test in China. Or is that just the first documented mention of the plant as being a useful herb? I don't really know much at all about its history in the far east.
Most of my historical knowledge is based of people like my namesake Herodotus. So you have the Scythians and their cannabis saunas. But they are a nomadic people stretching from the modern day Ukraine to Afghanistan at least. And Herodotus mentions other people further east than them briefly in the histories.
So its not like somebody in what's now modern China wouldn't know as much if not more about what's going on to the west of them. Humans have always engaged in selective breeding when it comes to livestock and crops. If you look at the history and development of the many breeds of modern horse or dogs say.
I think it's all a bit like when people say Celtic. And then assume that's everybody from here in Ireland to the Balkans and parts of modern Turkey. Just because they share an art style and some cultural similarities. When in fact they are all very different peoples with some iconic metal work etc used to make these links later turn out to have made their way across Europe via trade etc.
Persevered Pullum and other items used related to the burning of cannabis is prob our best hope of tracking it down. And even then you are most likely looking at a very rough area in Central Asia Europe would fit into a few times over. In the same way we know apple originated in Afghanistan.... Roughly lol.
@herrodotus450bc thats the thing pal ,there is reference to a Emperor smoking the herb in China around 2500 bc, but they didn't have emperors at that time , the tiny bit I mentioned is just a section of the silk road ,that bit interested myself as its supposedly where the indicas are thought to originate, the part running through the valley , has also been referred to as kush pass in some extracts, the fact that seed was traded and swapped ect along those routes aswell as other goods . Scarah o bri ,think its called island off Scotland, showed trade to the Middle East, not sure of the time period but its old old
