Jesus 'healed using cannabis'

Jesus w as almost certainly a cannabis user and an early proponent of the medicinal properties of the drug, according to a study of scriptural texts published this month. The study suggests that Jesus and his disciples used the drug to carry out miraculous healings.

The anointing oil used by Jesus and his disciples contained an ingredient called kaneh-bosem which has since been identified as cannabis extract, according to an article by Chris Bennett in the drugs magazine, High Times, entitled Was Jesus a Stoner? The incense used by Jesus in ceremonies also contained a cannabis extract, suggests Mr Bennett, who quotes scholars to back his claims.

"There can be little doubt about a role for cannabis in Judaic religion," Carl Ruck, professor of classical mythology at Boston University said.

Referring to the existence of cannabis in anointing oils used in ceremonies, he added: "Obviously the easy availability and long-established tradition of cannabis in early Judaism _ would inevitably have included it in the [Christian] mixtures."

Mr Bennett suggests those anointed with the oils used by Jesus were "literally drenched in this potent mixture _ Although most modern people choose to smoke or eat pot, when its active ingredients are transferred into an oil-based carrier, it can also be absorbed through the skin".

Quoting the New Testament, Mr Bennett argues that Jesus anointed his disciples with the oil and encouraged them to do the same with other followers. This could have been responsible for healing eye and skin diseases referred to in the Gospels.

"If cannabis was one of the main ingredients of the ancient anointing oil _ and receiving this oil is what made Jesus the Christ and his followers Christians, then persecuting those who use cannabis could be considered anti-Christ," Mr Bennett concludes.

I didn't know whether to laugh or comment. :kicks :lol
laughter is always healthy :good:. commenting on it is what I will do next:

If this story and the research is true, then it does not put jesus in the catagory of the joe blow cannibus caretaker that this article is implying. Furthermore, I would like to know the affects of this oil once soaked into the skin. who's to say it would have the same affect of say smoking it or eating it :dntknw:

this article has the same affect as those I use to read that claimed after all these years, that certain notable people in history where gay :rolleyes:

LOL, I have read such stories and they always seemed very funny to me. I was shocked when I learnt that some authors are serious. Of course, I often visit the site here and buy there cannabis. I don't see anything bad in it but such words from the srticles are far from the truth
