In India, the use of marijuana has a long and complicated history, has many legends and belongs to the culture of Hinduism. Scientists found the first reminder of this plant in the Vedas, this is a sacred Hindu text. According to this scripture, hemp is a sacred plant and a guardian angel lives in its leaves. It was called the best source for achieving happiness and liberation, and according to legend, the gods themselves gave it to the mercy of people in order to overcome fears. God Shiva is associated with cannabis, who went into the field, quarreled with loved ones, and fell asleep under a strange leafy plant. After a dream, purely out of curiosity, I tasted it. After a few moments, a wonderful renewal came to him, he voted cannabis as his favorite food and began to bear the name Lord Bhang.

In the Middle Ages, bhang was often drunk by soldiers before battle to give courage and agility. There is also a legend here that during the battle under the leadership of Gobin Singh, the soldiers were already on the verge of collapse due to fear of death. The enemy had menacing elephants with swords in their trunks, but when the commander drugged his soldiers with a mixture of bhang and opium, they cheered up considerably and found ways to fight the elephants without harming their own health, so they won.

In the history of India, hemp has been used since incredibly ancient times, very often as a drink. It is added to milk with spices and nuts, some people use yogurt instead of milk. Another option is to eat pure bhang balls.

Other preparations from cannabis.
Basically it is ganja and charas. Ganja has a stronger effect than bhanga, as it is made from the flowers or leaves of the female cannabis plant. Charas, in turn, is even stronger and consists entirely of flowers. They are smoked through a special hookah in groups of 2-5 people.

An attempt to ban cannabis smoking.
At one point, British and Indian scientists were conducting research throughout India, as hemp began to be used very widely. But all attempts to impose a ban were in vain. It turned out that in India this is a very ancient and unshakable tradition and cannabis is completely harmless if you know the measure of use. This study remains relevant to this day.

Nowadays, there has been little change, with workers still smoking marijuana to relieve their fatigue, and religious Indians performing ceremonies using hashish. Today, it is even possible to buy cannabis without any obstacles in special tents that are licensed to sell.

In summary, the use of cannabis in India has such a long and uninterrupted history that its importance will not diminish for many centuries to come.
