10 Facts you didn’t know about cannabis

Throughout its history, marijuana has attracted plenty of unexpected users and proponents and much of the history of greenery is now familiar to us. To buy marijuana seeds is just as epic as playing hide-and-seek but what’s more with that was the unbelievable facts to be tackled below.

Weird ways to use hemp

The marijuana plant isn’t used only for smoking; its fibers can also be made into rope or fabric, perhaps the oddest use of hemp rope on record is a method for transporting Eastern Island’s giant stone statues.

Mythical origins

The hippie generation did not discover pot but the drug’s true origins remain a bit murky. The identity of the first person to discover pot’s intoxicating effects is lost to prehistory.

Baby soap oops

In an unusual case, a hospital in North Carolina noticed an uptick in the number of newborns who were testing positive for marijuana in their urine, a finding that can suggest that mom has been smoking and can lead to social services getting involved. But it turns out that these babies weren’t suffering from pot exposure. They were just soapy.

You can be allergic to pot

Like many other plants, marijuana can trigger allergic reactions in people. Both the plant’s pollen and its smoke can cause allergies in some people, the researchers said. Marijuana allergies are relatively rare, they wrote, but they’re on the rise and have probably been underreported or unnoticed because the drug has long been illegal.

Mind-altering green

Getting high might affect how you have seen winning and losing. In a 2016 study, participants played a game in which they could win a few cents or lose a few dollars, depending on how well they did. As they played, researchers scanned their brains, focusing on a small area called the nucleus accumbens that’s responsible for processing rewards. The study found that people who had used marijuana more showed weaker nucleus accumbens responses to the prospect of winning than people who’d used the drug less. Of course, the study couldn’t prove that marijuana use directly caused the brain changes – it could be that there is some third cause of both, or an underlying reason why someone with a lessened reward response might gravitate toward marijuana use, the researchers said.

Drug bust record

The Guinness Book of World Records apparently does not keep any records for the amounts of marijuana grown, smoked or otherwise consumed. But the drug does show up in the record books. The “bulkiest drug seizure” of marijuana ever was 2,903 metric tons, or 6.4 million pounds, that came from a Colombian drug operation. That was one-fifth of the entire illegal import of marijuana into the United States per year at the time, according to a 1982 New York Times article.

Hemp bought some slaves their freedom

Surprisingly, this is also true. For every pound of hemp over the 100 pounds, he was required to break per day; the slave was paid one cent. A good worker could break about 300 pounds, so it was possible to earn about two dollars a day. Some slaves earned enough money this way to buy their freedom.

Cannabis used to be a rich man’s drug

This one was hard to validate. The only reference to rich people in history connected to marijuana specifically was Scythian tribes leave cannabis seeds as offerings in royal tombs and Queen Arnegunde of France is buried with hemp cloth.

The U.S. government tested marijuana as a truth serum

In 1942 after testing several compounds, the OSS scientists selected a potent extract of marijuana as the best available “truth serum”. The cannabis concoction was given the code name TD, meaning Truth Drug. When injected into food or tobacco cigarettes, TD helped loosen the reserve of recalcitrant interrogation subjects.

Colonists were required to grow hemp

Nearly 55 tons of fiber was needed for the lines and rigging on the USS Constitution alone. Even more hemp fiber went into making the canvas for sails and caulking for the wooden hull. Revolutionary War-era farmers originally grew the fibrous crop for the British Crown, as Britain’s colonies were bound by law to grow hemp.
