kaneh-bosem

Ancient Holy Oil

Jesus was almost certainly a cannabis user and an early proponent of the medicinal properties of the drug. Jesus and his disciples used the drug to carry out miraculous healings. The anointing oil used by Jesus and his disciples contained an ingredient called kaneh-bosem which has since been identified as cannabis extract, event the incense used by Jesus in ceremonies would have contained a cannabis extract.  “There can be little doubt about a role for cannabis in Judaic religion,” Carl Ruck, professor of classical mythology at Boston University said.   Referring to the existence of cannabis in anointing oils used in ceremonies, he added:  “Obviously the easy availability and long-established tradition of cannabis in early Judaism would inevitably have included it in the [Christian] mixtures.”Jesus was almost certainly a cannabis user and an early proponent of the medicinal properties of the drug

Anointing

Those anointed with the oils used by Jesus were “literally drenched in this potent Cannabis mixture …. Many people today choose to smoke or eat pot, however, when its active ingredients are transferred into an oil-based carrier, it can also be absorbed through the skin”. Jesus anointed his disciples with the oil and encouraged them to do the same with other followers. This could have been responsible for healing eye and skin diseases referred to in the Gospels. “If cannabis was one of the main ingredients of the ancient anointing oil and receiving this oil is what made Jesus the Christ and his followers Christians, then persecuting those who use cannabis could be considered anti-Christian,”
