  • Cannabis may have had high origins. Where the plant comes from has been a bit of a mystery, but analysis of ancient pollen now suggests it evolved some 3 kilometres above sea level, on the Tibetan Plateau. Intriguingly, this site is only a few hundred kilometres from a cave that researchers recently announced was once home to our ancient human cousins, called Denisovans.
.
Humans began exploiting cannabis deep in prehistory. Its seeds are a good source of protein and fatty acids, while fibres from its stems can be spun into yarn and made into textiles. Its flowers, meanwhile, are a source of cannabinoids which have been used as a drug for at least 2700 years.
.
To find out where the plant evolved, John McPartland @UniversityofVermont and his colleagues searched through scientific studies to pick out archaeological and geological sites across Asia where cannabis pollen has been found.
.
McPartland and his colleagues discovered that the earliest occurrence of cannabis pollen in the geological and archaeological record is in northern China and southern Russia.
.
From the distribution of the pollen, the team concluded that cannabis probably emerged on the Tibetan Plateau in the vicinity of Qinghai Lake, which is about 3200 metres above sea level.
.
Qinghai Lake lies just a few hundred kilometres northwest of Baishiya Karst Cave, which we now know was visited by Denisovans at least 160,000 years ago. But this doesn’t necessarily mean the ancient humans had the option of exploiting cannabis.
.
Earth was deep in an ice age at this time. We don’t yet know whether cannabis continued to grow on the Tibetan Plateau during such punishing conditions. It may have evolved there about 28 million years ago, which is when biologists estimate cannabis and the common hop last shared a common ancestor.
.
But Denisovans may have encountered cannabis elsewhere. There is cannabis pollen in the sand and dirt of Denisova Cave in Siberia, where Denisovan fossils were first identified.

  • Love the taste of these. The coconut ones are more bland. The granola ones are delicious. Not overwhelmingly sweet. Neither taste like mj at ALL. These are honestly one of my favorite if not favorite. I have ADHD so they relax me to where I can think straight, no anxiety. I'll usually eat like 20-50mg (2-5bites) on a day where I'm stressed. I have a high tolerance so they don't make me extremely stoned, just relaxed. Love em. 💚 @3leafedibles
