What do you smoke?
When smoking Cannabis, you want to know what you're smoking. Even if it's your first time you want to know, so you get your desired high.
When beginning, you want to know where cannabis came from. Cannabis plants are believed to have evolved on the steppes of Central Asia, specifically in the regions that are now Mongolia and southern Siberia, according to Warf. The history of cannabis use goes back as far as 12,000 years, which places the plant among humanity's oldest cultivated crops, according to information in the book Marihuana: The First Twelve Thousand Years (Springer, 1980).
