King James Bible
And I will raise up for them a plant of renown, and they shall be no more consumed with hunger in the land, neither bear the shame of the heathen any more.
One of the oldest texts ever found is the Ebers Papyrus. It was written somewhere around 1550 BC and is one of the oldest finished medical textbooks to have been found so far.
It mentions a number of formulas which make use of cannabis IE, hemp. It was commonly used to alleviate pain and inflammation caused by numerous diseases and injuries.
Women in particular used marijuana to ward off depression and other psychological problems in early Egypt.
The oldest medicinal use of the herb in the region may date back even further, to 2000 BC, when it might have been used to treat glaucoma, cataracts, hemorrhoids, vaginal bleeding and yes, even cancer. Cannabis was probably not a cure, but used to lessen the symptoms mostly. Modern Science is just starting to look more in depth into this plant. We are only beginning to verify the fact that cannabis has some truly amazing pain-relieving properties. It is a very potent calming agent for the imbalanced central nervous systems of patients suffering from Parkinson’s Disease and many other illness's.
Yes they have also found traces of Cannabis in Egyptian Tombs and in their Artwork, Religion and Culture
In 1881 the mummy of Pharaoh Ramesses II was discovered and when his tomb was finally opened in 1995 traces of cannabis were found in his tomb. That was the last thing anyone was expecting, but there it was.
Since then, a lot of the uncovered mummies have shown similar traces of Cannabis and even other drugs such as Cocaine and Opium, confirming the suspicion that indeed cannabis and other drugs were already a part of the regular culture in ancient Egypt.
In ancient Egypt there is a fair amount of artwork that depicts what looks to be cannabis, showing it being used for medicinal, religious and cultural purposes.
Seshat, the goddess of wisdom and Bastet, the feline goddess of war were often depicted with a leaf of the cannabis plant in paintings of them from thousands of years ago. Bastet, the goddess of war, was depicted using cannabis but more for witchcraft.
There is also evidence suggesting that ancient worshipper's may have been consuming marijuana in one form or the other during their religious festivities and rituals.
They have also found Cannabis, in its digestible form in tombs in the Turpan District of Xinjiang, China that date back 2000s to 2500 years ago via carbon-dating. Mankind's use may date back even farther than 12,000 years ago.
Carl Sagan in his book “Dragons of Eden”, Carl Sagan speculated that marijuana may have been the first crop planted by Stone Age Man, using the Pygmies as an example. The Pygmies were basically hunter-gatherers until they started planting marijuana, which they use for religious purposes.
In defense of the Pygmies, perhaps I should note that a friend who has spent time with them says that for such activities as the patient stalking and hunting of mammals and fish, they prepare themselves through marijuana intoxication, which helps to make the long waits, boring to anyone further evolved than a Komodo dragon, at least moderately tolerable. Ganja is their only cultivated crop. It would be wryly interesting if in human history, the cultivation of marijuana led generally to the invention of agriculture, and thereby to civilization.”Carl Sagan
And God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit. You shall have them for food.”
HCO, what is it, where does it come from?
In short HCO is an acronym that stands for Holy Christ Oil.
It is a most ancient recipe, given to Moses directly by his almight GOD.
Some might call it Highly Controversial Oil.
Basically its RSO (Rick Simpson Oil) with extra bling. Some say its also a miracle in a bottle.
History accepts that Jesus was a great Healer, the bible tells stories of him healing the Sick.. Even raising the dead.
What isn't talked about though is how he did that. Some religious people think he did it simply by laying his hands on them. If that is the case, then why is the Greek work for the act of Anointing someone Christo's, Jesus the Anointer?
the recipe that Jesus would have used to heal people.
But again how many know that its actually written in the Bible, in the Old Testament to be specific. Everyone accepts that there might be some mistakes or changes that have taken place each time they translate the Bible into other languages. The first of these translations was called the Septuagint (latin for seventy) and was to be done by 70 scribes, hence the name. This is the very first Bible in some respects and it was also the very first translation of the Torah and some related texts into any language other than ancient Hebrew or Aramaic and this was to be translated into Koine Greek. What's historically interesting is understanding why its about to be translated. The Greek King of Egypt Ptolemy II Philadelphus (309–246 BC) was helping build the Great Library at Alexandria and that tells us that it was written during the 3rd through 1st centuries BCE. This will be the first time anyone is do a translation of these ancient texts and its going to from Hebrew into Greek. Guess what one of the mis-translation's was. If you guessed the Recipe for Holy Christ Oil you got more right than they did. We wouldn't even know this though if Sara Benetowa aka Sula Benet back in 1936 wrote a book called "Tracing One Word Through Different Languages”. This was a study on the word Cannabis, based on a study of the oldest Hebrew texts. Historically the word Cannabis was thought to be of Scythian origin. However, Benet’s research showed it had an earlier root in the Semitic Languages such as Hebrew. Benet demonstrated that the ancient Hebrew word for Cannabis is Kaneh-Bosem. Sara knew her stuff as an etymologist from the Institute of Anthropological Sciences, in Warsaw. She wrote several books that followed the word Cannabis back through history. So back to what HCO is, it is the recipe as told to Moses by his God.
