South African Cannabis Roots: Indigenous Wisdom & Chuckles

Greetings, my fellow purveyors of good vibes! Today, let's take a hilarious stroll through South Africa's cannabis history (Read the history of South Africa here).

South African Cannabis Roots: Indigenous Wisdom & Chuckles

Centuries ago, the native people of South Africa were rolling up something special in their smoke circles. Cannabis wasn't just a plant; it was the OG of good vibes. Imagine the conversations around that ancient smoke circle – probably the world's first comedy show!

Dutch Arrival and the Ban: Going Dutch on Banning Buzz

When the Dutch arrived, they brought more than just wooden shoes. They saw the potential in cannabis but were a bit buzzkill on the consumption front. "Let's grow it, but don't smoke it," they said, clearly not understanding the "high" stakes.

Farmers and Cultivation: High Yields, Low Laughs

Dutch (and Afrikaner) farmers in the 18th and 19th centuries were all about that hemp life (Read it here). But did they smoke it? Nah, they were too busy cultivating crops. Hemp, not high – that was their motto. Comedy gold or a missed opportunity? You decide.

Fast forward to today, and South Africa is back on the cannabis comedy stage. With over 20 legal locations distributing cannabis, it's like a party for your senses. The laughter is rolling in clouds!
