Were the First Christians Annointed with Pot Oil?

Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, [even] thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. Hebrews 1:9

If not this oil, could other oils extracted from what the Hebrews called keneh bosem?  According to the latest post on Legalization Nation, the idea that ancient Christians and, indeed, Christ himself used a marijuana oil is gaining credence among some scholars. In fact, some say that the ancient term for Christian comes from a term meaning “a person with pot oil smeared over their face.”

  • Sula Benet’s Kaneh bosm theory would be valid except for that Christianity is a fake as hell cultural thing made up 300 years after the whole Christ deal was already supposed to have went down anyway.
