Marijuana is a fast growing bushy plant with large sticky flowers, mostly famous for its psychoactive compounds. It can be used when dried or processed in different ways to yield a variety of products that can be eaten, smoked or vaporized. Marijuana is used all over the world is famous for recreational, medicinal and industrial purposes. It is due to its psychoactive properties that marijuana was banned in most parts of the world in the twentieth and twenty first century and remains so to this day. Even after it was declared illegal to possess or use marijuana, the popularity has not died down and it is used extensively all over the world today.
The Marijuana plant originated in the Himalayas, around Tibet. It was discovered by the Chinese who used it for a number of things. But soon after, the Chinese discovered another drug, called opium and marijuana gradually lost its flavor for them. However, marijuana seeds were scattered in the region and the plant found its way to India. The Indians used marijuana for making ropes and oils. After that, the Arabs spread the plant to Afghanistan, where it still grows in huge amounts and some plants are as old as a thousand years.
Marijuana is a very easy to grow plant, if you acquire the right seeds. Marijuana grows wildly all over the world but the quality of such plants is often very low. Wildly growing marijuana is refered to as "ditch weed" because it is never as potent as marijuana that is grown intentionally.
Nowadays, marijuana is found in most parts of South Asia, especially Afghanistan. In America, there is a large production of marijuana in South America. The reason for this could be that marijuana is a plant that thrives in humid and hot environments. Even though marijuana originated in the Himalayas, which are cold and dry, the plant has evolved and adapted to much denser climates.
Basically, you can grow marijuana anywhere. It would be difficult to grow it in a desert or say, the Arctic. The desert would not only fail to provide the required amount of water, but the soil or sand would lack the necessary nutrients required for a plant like marijuana to grow properly. Extremely cold places, like the arctic would also prove to be unwelcome hosts as these places have very low climates and are usually extremely dry which makes it very difficult for a plant like marijuana to grow properly.
Marijuana grows best during summer and spring as these seasons are usually hot and provide the optimum temperature. The climate also gets quite humid which only adds to the growth of the plant. Marijuana can be grown both indoors and outdoors, it grows well in both scenarios. Because marijuana is a such an easy plant to grow, you will find it everywhere, even as a wild plant on the roadside.
