Marijuana and religion Christianity and Judaism

Cannabis is probably a significant part of the Christian religion and is likely often mentioned in the Old Testament. All these ‘probably’ and ‘likely’ come from strong doubts about the correct translation of ancient books into modern language. In 1936, the Polish etymologist Sara Benetowa expressed skepticism about the meaning of the word “Kaneh Bosm” which is mentioned in texts such as the Book of Exodus, the Song of Songs, and the revelations of the prophets Isaiah, Jeremiah and Ezekiel very often.

The fact is that the Hebrew phrase ‘Kaneh Bosm’, which always meant cannabis, suddenly became calamus: a plant traditionally used for essential oils in the original Greek translation of the scriptures.

If Sara Benetowa is right, we should seriously review traditional Christian rituals. For example, God himself commanded Moses to make holy oil from myrrh, cinnamon, cassia, and the notorious “Kaneh Bosm”.

But, even if we abstract ourselves from the question of translations, one of the dogmas of the Christian faith says, that the body is a temple of the Holy Spirit (First Epistle to the Corinthians 6: 19-20), and medicines used to heal the body and relieve pain, can be considered a natural part of the Christian life. Also, Psalm 104:14 mentions that God created herbs to serve humans. From this point of view, there is nothing forbidden (in the CBD cannabinoid, at least).

And you know who doesn’t agree with God? Priests. There’s nothing new, though. The most conservative ministers of the cult often call marijuana the devil’s instrument. By the way, the famous film “Reefer Madness” was released by a group of parishioners from one of the churches. Even today, some Christian leaders are fighting to keep all forms of cannabis out of the law.

Society is changing and changing its attitude towards religion and marijuana. Will they be able to survive these changes together, or will someone stay in the past?
