Additional Information

Cannabis: Evolution and Ethnobotany is a comprehensive, interdisciplinary exploration of the natural origins and early evolution of this famous plant, highlighting its historic role in the development of human societies. Cannabis has long been prized for the strong and durable fiber in its stalks, its edible and oil-rich seeds, and the psychoactive and medicinal compounds produced by its female flowers. The culturally valuable and often irreplaceable goods derived from cannabis deeply influenced the commercial, medical, ritual, and religious practices of cultures throughout the ages, and human desire for these commodities directed the evolution of the plant toward its contemporary varieties. As interest in cannabis grows and public debate over its many uses rises, this book will help us understand why humanity continues to rely on this plant and adapts it to suit our needs.

What makes the book truly great is that it provides so much material that will be of interest to anyone intrigued by this multipurpose plant.

The book's authors, Robert Connell Clarke and Mark Merlin, bring decades of experience to this magnum opus. Because Clarke and Merlin have spent considerable time as field researchers, their experience with the plant on every continent informs their writing with "ground truth". And that's why I consider the work to be seminal.

I met Mark Merlin eighteen months ago and asked if he and Robert Clarke would consider letting me read this book as they prepared it for publication. They consented. Lucky me. This is a superb book and I simply loved reading it. I've actually read it a few times, because there is so much... Read more
