Cannabis Industry India History
Cannabis has a long history in India, veiled in legends and religion. The earliest mention of cannabis has been found in (The Vedas sacred Hindu texts). These writings may have been compiled as early as 2000 to 1400 B.C. According to The Vedas, cannabis was one of the sacred plants and a guardian angel lived in its leaves. The Vedas call cannabis “…a source of happiness, joy-giver, liberator that was compassionately given to humans to help us attain delight and lose fear. It releases us from anxiety.”
The ancient god, Shiva is frequently associated with cannabis, called Bhang in India. According to legend, Shiva wandered into the elds after an angry discourse with his family. Drained from the family convict and the hot sun, he fell asleep under a leafy plant. When he awoke, his curiosity led him to sample the leaves of the plant. Instantly rejuvenated, Shiva made the plant his favorite food and he became known as the Lord of Bhang. Ancient Strains carries on.
