Uighur Weed has been around for centuries. Excavations at a 2,700-year-old cemetery in Western China have provided a fascinating glimpse into the history of cannabis use in the region. Archaeologists uncovered nearly two pounds of well-preserved cannabis in the burial sites of individuals believed to have been Uighur Weed Shamans. The discovery was made in 2008, when researchers were excavating a series of tombs at the Jirzankal Cemetery in the Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region of China. Chemical analysis of the plant material confirmed that it was cannabis, and radiocarbon dating suggested that it was from around 500 BCE. Now that is some very old Uighur Weed!
Chinese Weed CultureThis discovery has important implications for our understanding of ancient Chinese culture and medicine. The presence of cannabis in the burial sites of shamans shows the plant was used for medicinal and spiritual purposes. This is consistent with the long history of cannabis use in China. It’s where it has been used as a medicine for thousands of years. In traditional Chinese medicine, cannabis has been used to treat a variety of ailments, including pain, inflammation, and anxiety.
Rare Glimpse Into Chinese WeedThe discovery of well-preserved cannabis in the Jirzankal Cemetery is also significant from an archaeological standpoint. Cannabis is a fragile plant that does not preserve well over long periods of time. Moreover, the fact that nearly two pounds of the plant material was found in such good condition is remarkable. The discovery provides a rare glimpse into the ancient history of cannabis use and the cultural and spiritual practices of the people who used it.
Chinese Cannabis ShamansIn recent years, there has been a growing interest in the potential therapeutic uses of cannabis in China. This discovery provides valuable insights into the plant’s history and potential uses. I continue to study the chemical composition of cannabis and its effects on the human body. I want to get my hands on some Uighur Cannabis Genetics. This has renewed my interest in the plant’s medicinal properties. This discovery of Chinese cannabis in the burial sites of Uighur shamans is exciting for me. Always knowing ancient China had a long history of cannabis use, this sparked my need to breed new strains. A Uighur strain, a blast from the past. I want to focus on creating Uighur Weed for Chinese medicine and of course for spiritual practices. I believe I can provide valuable insights into Uighur Weed and its therapeutic potential.

Mr. BC Seeds is an over educated old school hippy who has been involved in the cannabis industry since the 1970's. He is one of the most experienced marijuana breeders in Canada if not the entire world. He was the first to use the most advanced breeding techniques in 2008 to create 42 of the world's strongest cannabis strains. He has been writing in-depth articles about cannabis in Canada for decades and looks forward to continue bringing you cutting edge cannabis strains for the decades to come. Mr. BC Seeds uses a "pen name" because he still travels the world collecting cannabis strains and continues researching cannabis in laboratories of non-legalized countries.
