How was it realized that mj was smokeable?
    #4150614 - 05/08/05 05:56 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

I wonder why someone decided to try and smoke it thousands of years ago?

probably first burned it for fuel in mass quantities, noticed things were a lot different when you sat close to the special camp fire and put two and two togeather.

It was prob. first eaten for food or maybe used as a seasoning or something. Than once it's special properties were discovered they prob. tried a lot of thing with it.

Yep, that'd be my guess too...

That's actually how the Scythians, history's earliest known stoners, used to get high. They'd burn a bunch of cannabis plants in a tent, then they'd all crawl in.

I bet someone, at some time, has tried to smoke just about every plant that exists.

yes indeed, scythian vapor baths...
tents set up for funeral wakes, sorta.... they'd toss a pile of primo bud on a big bed of fire-hot rocks inside a small tent, & everybody wopuld lay on their backs with their heads inside the tent enclosure & inhale deeply until the spirit filled them & then would leave the tent & stand up & HOWL!!!!!!!!


there are also suggestions that cannabis seeds have been found in the censers at some of the greek oracular sites...


& the yellow emperor's classic book (china) of medicine mentions hemp's medicinal properties...

cannabis was apparently not introduced to the new world until 1492 (in spite of sporadic contacts with north & south america by norse, african, chinese, irish, etc.) --- it was not brought over from the old world by the ancient asian nomads who became the american "indians"...

The Chinese collected seeds for food and noticed that the more of the green skins with trichomes that they ate surrounding the seeds, the more inebriated they became. From this, it was probably logical at the time to smoke the green seed coverings to produce a more efficient high.

People have been eating random things longer than they've been burning plants for fuel, so my guess is that marijuana buds may have first been eaten by our hungry ancestors, and then rediscovered that the smoke was psychoactive later when they burned it for fuel.

But the thread is on when it was realized it was smokeable, not psychoactive, so I'm guessing some humans started a fire of cannabis, and were sitting around it cooking food or getting warmth and they noticed a sensation of confusion and euphoria come over them. Over time they connected it to that specific plant, and may have started burning it for its effects rather than using it purely for fuel.
