The world’s oldest stash of marijuana was found in a tomb in China. According to the Journal of Experimental Botany, the cannabis is about 2,700 years old.
Researchers found all 789 grams of dried cannabis buried beside, what they believe, to be a shaman of the Gushi culture. It was found in Turpan in northwest China.
Dry conditions and the alkaline soil preserved the stash, which enabled scientists to study it.
“To our knowledge, these investigations provide the oldest documentation of cannabis as a pharmacologically active agent,” says Dr. Ethan B. Russo, a neurologist.
However, they can’t determine if the cannabis they found was ingested or smoked. No pipes or other clues were discovered in order to reach a good conclusion.
The researchers also speculated that the large cache was meant for afterlife use.
“It was common practice in burials to provide materials needed for the afterlife. No hemp or seeds were provided for fabric or food. Rather, cannabis as medicine or for visionary purposes was supplied,” Russo added.

Apparently I am the only one that noticed that the above skeletal remains has an elongated skull? Not unlike the Paracas skulls of Peru, or the ancient Egyptians especially during the Armana epoch, including King Akhenaten, Queen Nefertiti, their six female children and their son King Tutankhamen. I find it very telling that China and the world of archeology goes out of it’s way to cover up the Caucasoid Tarim mummies. I suppose it has to do with the fact that they all have Nordic features, are over 6 foot tall with blonde or red hair, covered in tattoos, and predate the Chinese by 1000 years. In one picture I can clearly see one of the mummies has polydactylism (6 fingers).
Marijuana is a herb created by the Most High God of creation for His creatures, we must find the right uses for it, and it will be of a great advantage to mankind.Since the creator is peperfect in His creation.
