Which Regions of the World Does Hemp Come From?

According to the oldest evidence surrounding the evolution of cannabis, the plant evolved 28 million years ago on the Tibetan plateau.

Studies on the cannabis genome concluded that humans domesticated it around 12,000 years ago in China (Taiwan).

But it wasn’t until 1,400 B.C. that cannabis became available to the public. Before then, the plant was reserved for elites.

Researchers believe that the plant is native not only to Asia but also to South America.
