Summary
Cannabis in the Ancient Greek and Roman World surveys the primary references to cannabis in ancient Greek and Roman texts and covers emerging scholarship in the field. Ancient Greek and Latin medical texts from the Roman Empire contain the most mentions of the plant, where it served as an effective ingredient in ancient pharmacy. Alan G. Sumler focuses on the ancient rationale behind cannabis and their understanding of the plant's properties, effects, and its different applications. This book offers comprehensive coverage of all references to psychoactive cannabis in the Greek and Roman world, as well as the archaeology of ancient cannabis. Beyond cannabis, it explores ancient views on medicine, pharmacy, and intoxication
