Origins of Cannabis: Africa

Origins of Cannabis: Africa

While cannabis is not indigenous to Africa, today it is a major cash crop in places such as South Africa and Malawi, as well as in North Africa, where cannabis history is more closely tied to that of the Arab world. Malawi Gold is in fact an internationally renowned sativa strain, acknowledged by (of all sources) a World Bank report as one of the finest, most sought-after cannabis strains in the world. Despite its current illegal status there, it is among the county’s top 3 exports, and is also responsible for a boost in tourism to the small nation in recent decades.
