Review: Cannabis and the Soma Solution
A Complete Guide to Cannabis "Chris Bennett assembles religious, historical, medical and poetic sources with immaculate ease, in order to construct what is sure to be an enduring examination of the global history of cannabis use by widely diverse human populations. Hillman, author, The Chemical Muse: The great Jack Herer laid the foundation of our understanding of the foolishness of cannabis prohibition in its modern form: Chris Bennett has performed an invaluable service by proving once and for all that the oldest and greatest spiritual sacrament in human history is cannabis use.
Bennett's several books on this subject and am in general agreement with what he states, especially about the extent to which the Vedic hallucinogen Soma was probably made from cannabis. Sakas wore a lot of gold, most of which was fashioned into ornate jewelry and armor embellished with fantastic animal motifs, including griffins and other mythical creatures. These images were also tattooed on their arms and shoulders, and some of it bears an eerie resemblance to psychedelic imagery of the Sixties counterculture.
The Sakas were formidable warriors and one of the few cultures that allowed women to fight alongside men. But when not at war, they were famous for being law-abiding and civil. They wore trousers and drank an early version of bhang in ceremonial cups, some of which were fashioned from the skulls of their enemies.

Since they built no cities or temples, and lived in covered wagons pulled by oxen, the Sakas simply withdrew as a Persian army of , advanced into their territory. Darius repeatedly tried to force battle but the Sakas just kept withdrawing. Finally, Darius sent an envoy to the Saka chief and received the following message: We follow our mode of life in peaceful times. We have neither towns nor cultivated lands in these parts which might induce us, through fear of their being ravaged, to be in any hurry to fight you.
Attempt to meddle with them and you shall see whether or not we will fight with you. Darius would never dare invade the Russian steppes again. There are amazing parallels between the Sakas and the American West. When threatened, they would arrange their four and six-wheeled mobile homes into large circles. They took scalps in battle and hung these grisly souvenirs from their bridles to display their prowess. They had no stirrups but were famous for being able to shoot arrows in rapid fire while riding horseback.
They built teepees and used these primarily as cannabis inhalation tents. Unlike the Greeks and Romans, who established vast pantheons of Gods and Goddesses, the Sakas recognized only the sacred energies of earth, sky, sun, moon, fire, water and war. One can only imagine the impact one of their wagon-trains might have had upon arriving at communities unfamiliar with horses, wagons or psychedelic tattoos.

Shen Nong was Emperor of China nearly 5, years ago. Today, he is venerated as the founder of Chinese agriculture and traditional Chinese medicine. His name translates as the Emperor of the Five Grains. He is believed to have introduced the technique of acupuncture and was the first person in recorded history to scientifically study herbs for medicinal qualities. He also was reportedly the first person to brew tea. Two thousand years after the reign of Shen Nong, Taoists in China created the first modern pharmacopoeia.
Interest in medicine was closely guarded by the Taoists, who at time were associated with the highest levels of government and royalty.
According to historian Joseph Needham, Yang Hsi attributed the founding of the first major Taoist center to a cannabis-based vision. And in the sixth century, Taoist Wu Shang Pi Yao, recomended two types of cannabis be burned in the ceremonial incense braziers called boshanlus. However, theories about the origins of hemp intoxication in China are currently being revised because hundreds of caucasian mummies from the Bronze Age have been discovered along the ancient silk road in the Taklamakan Desert in Western China. Some mummies were dressed in Celtic-style Tartan cloth nearly identical to clothing in use in Austria over 3, years ago.
One of the women was wearing a conical hat, the distinctive emblem of the Sakas.
