Lamarck & Cannabis

The nomenclature of Cannabis has been the object of numerous nomenclatural treatments. Swedish Botanist Linnaeus in his book Species Plantarum gave European Hemp the official name Cannabis sativa in 1753 and described a single species of hemp, Cannabis sativa.


Whereas French Naturalist Jean-Baptiste Lamarck discovered a second species of Cannabis in 1783 and proposed two species of Cannabis, because he stated the Cannabis Sativa plant found in Europe is different than the Cannabis plant in India and added the name #Indica to distinguish between the two:

Sativa, the species largely cultivated in Western Continent.
Indica, a wild species growing in India and neighboring countries.


  • Besides look, indica and sativa are commonly believed to have different effects on their user.

  • Lamarck discovered that sure Marijuana plants from India were intoxicating. But ancient hemp crops, that were additional common in Europe, had no psychoactive impact.

  • In fact, History Suggests a way less complicated distinction between indica and sativa.
