5000 BC - WEARING IT? THE HAZY HISTORY OF CANNABIS IN ANCIENT KOREA
trading records lead one to believe that the cannabis plant has been
grown in the Korean peninsula and traded with China and Japan for
centuries, and archaeological findings show that these plants have
been around in this part of Asia since at least 5000 BC.
Archaeological research also
suggests that hemp was mainly used as a fabric, alongside silk. It
was also used to create paper, which was highly prized for its
quality and used in important Buddhist writings.
