Cannabis was first domesticated around 12,000 years ago in China, researchers found, after analyzing the genomes of plants from across the world.

…our results are consistent with a single domestication origin of cannabis sativa in East Asia, in line with early archaeological evidence.

Fascinating, I’d be curious to learn what kind of cannabinoid and terpene profile these original cultivars had, and if we can recapture those genetics now out of the east asian landraces.
