The History of Cannabis - Part I: Podcast 140 - NPK Hydroponics Live

February 11th, 2018


This week, Stephen and Thomas travel back 12,000 years to the beginning of the recorded history of Cannabis and look at the what happened until 1935 when prohibition really started.

Who first made use of Cannabis?

Where did it originate?

What was it used for?

How much of a role does religion play in Cannabis?

Was Jesus using Cannabis oil to heal?

Did Napolean really sow the seed of prohibition with his armies?

We talk in-depth in this week's podcast about all of the above and more.

We hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed researching and talking about this fascinating topic.

Have a great day,
