Throughout the ages, Cannabis has been extolled as one of man's greatest benefactors and cursed as one of his greatest scourges. Cannabis has been known by many names; hemp, hashish, dagga, bhang, loco weed, grass, etc..

Formally christened Cannabis #Sativa in 1753 by Carolus Linnaeus, Cannabis is one of nature's hardiest specimens. It needs little care to thrive. One need not talk to it, sing to it, or play tranquil Brahms lullabies to coax it to grow. It is as vigorous as a weed. It is ubiquitous. It flourishes under nearly every possible climatic condition.

Carolus Linnaeus / The Swedish Father of Botany

Linnaeus, also known as Carl von Linné, was born in the village of Rashult in Smaland, Sweden, on May 23, 1707. He was a Swedish botanist, physician, and zoologist who formalised binomial nomenclature, the modern system of naming organisms.

He is considered the "Father of Modern Taxonomy". He was one of the most acclaimed scientists in Europe at the time of his death (10 ianuarie 1778).

Linnaeus & Cannabis

Swedish botanist Linnaeus, gave European Hemp the official name Cannabis sativa in 1753, and published descriptions (In His Book Species Plantarum) with the plant’s current name, cannabis sativa. "Cannabis" originate in the Greek word Kannabis and "Sativa" is a biological science adjective that means cultivated.
