Introduction[edit]

Hemp also known as Cannabis has provided almost every single human society in history with many of its needs. The word "canvas" is derived from the Dutch pronunciation of the Greek word "Kannabis". Etymologists trace "Kannabis" traced back to the early Sumerian/Babylonian word "K(a)N(a)B(a)" , one of the longest surviving root words in human language.
