THE CANNABIS HISTORY

The origin of marijuana seeds is very difficult to establish, it is said that cannabis is from Central and South Asia. It has found evidence of cannabis smoke inhalation dating from the third millennium B.C. (BC), as indicated by the discovery of charred cannabis seeds inside a brazier of a ritual carried out in an ancient cemetery in Romania. There is also evidence that it was used by some ancient tribes of modern India and Nepal for thousands of years. The grass was called ganjika, currently in India call it ganja, and the soma which is the divine narcotic of ancient India and considered a mediator with the divine, the soma was mentioned by the old Vedic religion  that it was associated sometimes with cannabis , its nature was a mystery for thousands of years.

Origen del cannabis

 

The Assyrian village located in Southeast Asia, had knowledge of cannabis and its psychoactive properties with the name Gunubu that probably gave rise to later cannabis. They used it in religious ceremonies. Cannabis was introduced to the Aryan people who burned plant flowers marijuana to induce trance states. In 2003 in a region in northwest China a basket of leather was founded fulled of leaf fragments and cannabis seeds next to a mummified shaman of about 2500-2800 old years.

Cannabis has an ancient history in religious rituals around the world, archaeologists have discovered hemp seeds that suggest old ceremonial practices such as intake of these during the V and II century’s b.C, a writer has said that the ancient Jews and Christians used cannabis as a religious sacrament.

In the twentieth century several countries began to penalize the use of cannabis. In 1911 he was banned in South Africa in 1913 in Jamaica when he was still a British colony and in the 1920s the United Kingdom and New Zealand. Canada made it illegal to use marijuana with a law in 1923 before it had reported any consumption of the plant, in 1925 at a conference in the Hague it was reached to the commitment of banning the export of Indian hemp to countries that have prohibited use, it was only allowed the import if it was certified that these herbs were exclusively for scientific or medical purposes and it was required a control that would prevent illicit trafficking of Indian hemp especially the resin.

In 1906 in the District of Columbia (United States) the first restrictions on the sale of cannabis were enacted and a law that hemp production besides marijuana would be ban was approved in 1937. According to a report agency narcotics the fields of hemp also would served as a source of distribution of marijuana, other hypotheses were that hemp had become a very cheap substitute for pulp paper and threatened the wood industry and also threatened investments in synthetic fibers and nylon that also they were overcome by the low cost of hemp.

 

DIFFERENT TYPES OF CANNABIS
Between the different kinds of cannabis seeds, we will distinguish three wide subspecies that define clearly their own features: Indica, Sativa and Rudelaris.

Indica marijuana seeds
Indica Cannabis plants are short shaped brush, with wide, dark and compact leave, coming from the Himalayan foothills where the cold weather forces them to bloom before it reaches the harsh winter with very low temperatures and snow.

It's a cannabis variety that blooms in late July and the harvest can be carried out from mid-September to late October depending on the variety and the hemisphere where we plant.

The buds that develop these marijuana plants both indoor crop and outdoor are thicker, full of leaves and filled with resin pistils, so this kind of marihuana’s can be consumed directly or passed through a sieve or other method to obtaining hashish, they are heavy penetrating perfume and flavor.

Due to its high content of CBD are a variety of medicinal cannabis that causes sleep, relaxation and soothing.

These plants are from Hindu Kush that have contributed their distinctive flavor to the Dutch Skunk.

The structure of a cannabis sativa plant is long and thin as a fir tree, long thin leaf, the color is paler than an Indica plant. The taste is light and delicate flavor and is tonic and euphoric effect.

The varieties of Sativa cannabis seeds 100 % bloom very late in our latitude late autumn to winter , unlike Indicas that are harvested between mid-September end of October, for this reason many seed banks offer crossings between Indica plants and Sativa plants creating cannabis seeds with different percentages of both variety accelerating the harvest and get Sativoindicas cannabis plants.
