Humans have been smoking, eating, and wearing cannabis and hemp for millennia.
Now, a new study out Wednesday asserts people used it explicitly to get high back in the first century.
Researchers ran a chemical analysis of a wooden brazier excavated from a burial tomb site in the Pamir mountains of Central Asia.
According to Gizmodo, they unexpectedly detected traces of cannabinoids in the brazier’s charred inner layer.
They subsequently examined the remaining brazier fragments and charred stones from the Pamir site, again finding cannabis.
