From the oldest Aryan scriptures came a collection of four holy books called the “Vedas” which told the tales of wars, battles, conquests, and the eventual settlement into the land of the Indus. These books also mention that the God “Siva” brought marijuana from the Himalayas. According to the Vedas mention that Siva became angry over a family argument and stormed off into the fields by himself where the cool shade of a tall marijuana plant brought him comforting refuge from the rays of the hot sun. Interested in the plant that sheltered him from the sun, he decided to eat the leaves of the plant and thus became the “Lord of Bhang”.
Throughout history Cannabis incense or herb was used for mortality rituals and love spells dating back to the the temple at Thebes.
