According to a study of scriptural texts, scholars are arguing that Jesus was a cannabis user and him and his disciple used the medicinal plant in miraculous healings.
The anointing oil that was used by Jesus and his disciples is said to have a contained an ingredient called kaneh-bosem, which has been identified as a cannabis extract.
The recipe for the anointing oil is given in its original Hebrew version in Exodus (30:22-23), the oil contained over six pounds of kaneh-bosem, six quarts of oil and a variety of fragrant herbs. Those who were anointed were covered in this oil and in this form the active ingredient THC could be absorbed into the skin. This argument is led by Chris Bennet who authored an article in the High Times, titled Was Jesus A Stoner?
Chris Bennet also suggest the incense used by Jesus in ceremonies also contained cannabis extract, and he quotes scholars to back up his claims.
“There can be little doubt about a role for cannabis in Judaic religion,” Carl Ruck, professor of classical mythology at Boston University said.
Referring to the use of cannabis in anointing oils he added: “Obviously the easy availability and long-established tradition of cannabis in early Judaism _ would inevitably have included it in the [Christian] mixtures.”
With this new evidence some of the miracles performed it the bible no longer seem as miraculous, as cannabis could have been responsible for healing skin and eye ailments mentioned in the gospels.
