Archaeological evidence establishes cannabis as one of humanity’s oldest cultivated plants. Various authorities estimate that the history of its use began 5-10,000 years ago, initially in Asia, where the plant is indigenous and spreading eventually worldwide. Commonly referred to in some countries as marijuana, the more universal nomenclature is « cannabis, » the genus name adopted from the main botanical sources of Cannabis sativa and Cannabis indica, and the less common Cannabis ruderalis.
