An archaeological and historical account of cannabis in china



An archaeological and historical account of cannabis in china



Economic Botany 28(4): 437-448



Cannabis has been used in China since very early times as a fiber plant, grain crop and medicinal plant. There is a continuous history of cultivation from Neolithic times to the present. Its use as a textile fiber remains its prime function through the ages. Its use as a food plant, first as grain and later also as a source of oil, gradually diminished in importance and eventually was completely forgotten. The use of the plant in medicine, especially as a hallucinogen, apparently was associated with the extensive practice of Shamanism in NE Asia.
