Hazed: Did Marijuana Come From Outer Space?

Hazed: Did Marijuana Come From Outer Space?

Taking its place among conspiracies like “Bigfoot is an alien”, “giants built the pyramids” and “the moon is an man-made”, the theory that one of the world’s most magical plants came from outer space has grown in popularity in recent years. I’m not talking about strawberries (although there is a rumor that Greys enjoy strawberry ice cream) but rather cannabis.

dogon tribeAs with most convergence points between mysticism and the extra-terrestrial, the theories point back to the Dogon tribe and their special connection with the Sirius star cluster. The most publicized concept explains that the Greek historian Herodotus visited the Dogon tribe in West Africa sometime around 300BC while they were having a year-long 420 celebration in honor of their favorite plant. When Herodotus went to count his lucky stars for the perfect timing, he found they were all in the Sirius star system. The Dogon explained to their new friend that the “two-dog plant” (cannabis) was brought to them from the “two-dog star” Sirius by a Nommo goddess. Nommo were amphibious/reptoid extraterrestrials that had a friendly relationship with the Dogon tribe. Today, the Dogon hold crocodiles in reverence, honoring them as descendents of their cosmic guides and explaining to visitors that the crocodiles in their lakes came from the sky.

The story first begins to unravel with the claim that the word “cannabis” is comprised of the words “canna” (dog) and “bis” (two) in Greek. However, ancient Sumerian languages use the word “kanubi” translating to “cane of two.” Ancient Hebrew language agrees with translations indicating the word means “cane” or “reed.” It can be determined that the “two” portion of the word may refer to the sexes. The sex of marijuana plants can be determined visibly making it one of very few plants on earth with such distinction. Most plants require DNA analysis to determine sex. The second plothole comes with the claim of Herodotus visiting in 300BC when scriptures indicate he died in 425BC. Perhaps some dates were incorrect but its difficult to rebound from such evidence.

The theory reaches beyond just this isolated story. Humans are born with THC receptors in our brains. This leads into another complex but even more popular conspiracy theory: that humans hyper-evolved through DNA manipulations performed by extra-terrestrials. Obviously this in’t just jumping to conclusions, it’s lunging for them. But it’s still interesting to think that, if humans are genetically designed creations of an extraterrestrial race, the THC receptors with which we’re born may have been specifically placed there to interact with cannabis – an alien plant.

Whether or not the theories hold truth, the human race has accepted the gift of ganja in varying degrees going way back to ancient times but now scientific developments are bringing mankind closer to “passing it back” to our cosmic brethren. After millennia of bogarting the joint, experiments are being done on growing plant life outside of the earth’s atmosphere. It’s already been proven that plant life can be grown and even flourish when cared for in low gravity conditions. It’s now speculated that gravity is less of a factor than the conditions of light Taking its place among some of the more colorful conspiracies like “Bigfoot is an alien”, “giants built the pyramids” and “the moon is an optical illusion”, the idea that one of the world’s most magical plants came from outer space has grown in popularity in recent years.

Is there weed growing in space?

Its rumored that Dale chamberlain, a former NASA botanist who flew a number of missions on the Shuttle Endeavor, grows a hybrid strain of his own he ironicially calls International Space Station. Or is it ironic? While marijuana isn’t officially slated for a plot in the  Plant Generic Bioprocessing Apparatus aboard the International Space Station, with a wink and a nod he tell reporters he’ll “let the rumor float” as to whether him and others snuck a few pot seeds into the zero gravity grow station back in the day (from http://motherboard.vice.com/read/finally-weed-goes-to-space).
