    A Chinese Neolithic legend said the gods gave humans one plant to fulfill all of their needs – that plant was hemp.

    One plant with five must-have survival products: food, rope, cloth, medicine and spiritual enlightenment.

    The first contact between humans and hemp are lost in the mists of time and history.

    The following story is one author’s attempt to reverse – engineer the missing prehistory of cannabis that has never been told. You should know by now I love a great story. And why shouldn’t this story have many elements of truth in it?

    Humans migrated out of Africa about 75,000 years ago and survived as hunter-gatherers for around 55,000 years or so.

    Around 10,000 years ago the last ice-age ended, and humans travelled further up into Asia – and they had their first contact with the hemp plant.

    A radical shift in human behaviour began, called the ‘Neolithic Revolution‘ – a period of great transition, where humans changed from a hunter gatherer subsistence to one of primitive settlements.

    A long way from the 21st century for sure. Enjoy this story now:

  1. Thank you so much for your posts. I enjoy reading them so much. Always inspiring or insightful and beautiful artwork. I am so pleased to be following you and so happy that you are still able to follow me 🙂

  2. They may well have been. Hemp was used internationally until 1932 or so,when American capitalists wanted to use other products. I think I posted on this here some time back. Scroll back if you like, you may find it.
