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
- Could this oil of gladness have been made from cannabis? 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.”
