High History / Part XIV / Queen Hatshepsut

9 months ago


Cannabis use goes as far, if not further, back as the Egyptians. Female Pharaoh Hatshepsut came to throne shortly at the Ebers Papyrus was written around 1550 BC, that details the use of cannabis.

So Who Was Hatshepsut?

  • Hatshepsut (1508 BC-1458 BC) was the longest ruling feminine Pharaoh in Egypt. She is taken into account one in all Egypt's most productive pharaohs.

  • Beginning in 1478 BC, Queen Hatshepsut reigned over Egypt for more than 20 years. She became queen of Egypt at 12 years old and predated Cleopatra’s reign by 14 centuries, as The First Woman to fully own the power of the throne.

  • Under Hatshepsut’s Reign, Egypt prospered, unlike different rulers in her kinsfolk, she was more interested in ensuring economic prosperity and building and restoring monuments throughout Egypt and Nubia than in conquering new lands.

  • She reigned peaceably, building temples and monuments, resulting in the flourishing of Egypt. She built the temple Djeser-Djeseru (Holiest of holy places), which was dedicated to Amon and served as her funerary cult.

  • Hatshepsut conjointly had one notable mercantilism expedition to the land of punt within the ninth year of her reign. The ships came with gold, ivory and myrrh trees, and also the scene was immortalized on the walls of the temple.

Hatshepsut has a lovely smile for someone,
who's been dead for thousands of years!

Hatshepsut & Ebers Papyrus

But her rise to authority might have been aided by Medical Marijuana as the Ebers Papyrus (1550 BC) was produced slightly before Hatshepsut Took The Throne. Ebers Papyrus show that the ancient Egyptians used cannabis, and details it's use for:

  • Many Medical Conditions such as depression, inflammation, pain relief.

  • Gynecological Purposes, wounds and even child birth, grinding it up into honey or using it as a capsule for menstrual pain.


According to Didier Lambert's Cannabinoids In Nature And Medicine, scholars now agree that what the Egyptians called; Shemshemet Was Definitely Cannabis, and it was used for a variety of #Medicinal Uses, including being:

  • Taken Orally as an oil.
  • Fumigation (Smoking).
  • Making Pessaries with cannabis-infused vaginal capsule to help women with severe menstrual pain.
