Cannabis Etymology Of The Word

Around the world, we can observe the historical importance of hemp in society. Hemp was also included in numerous novels, administrative texts, poems, plays and songs.

The importance of hemp throughout our history can also be noted in the names of towns and villages that are widely used for their local hemp industry - Cultivation, textile production, and so on - were known.

There are hundreds of such settlements in Europe, although the story behind the name is not always clear. The history of these cities can give us much information about the Use of cannabis along with a visual reference to the etymological evolution of the name for cannabis, which spread as knowledge and cultivation of the plant across the continent over time.

History of the word "cannabis"

The etymology of the modern word "Cannabis" is uncertain. The English word comes directly from the Greek word Κανναβιςbut the previous story of the word is a little bleak. The eminent linguist Elizabeth Wayland Barber suggested that the word derived from an ancient Proto-Indo-European (PIE) root has been, * Kan (n) ABand that the Greeks adopted their concept from the Scythians or Thracians.

Although the early story is hard to determine, we can say with certainty that the traditional words for cannabis are currently in almost every country in Europe used ultimately come from this root. The Italian hemp, the French hemp, the Spanish hemp - seem pretty clear. But amazing, despite sounding very different, comes the word "Hemp" actually from the same root too!

Germanic languages ​​and "cannabis"

This branch is particularly interesting, because here we see how the word * Kan (n) AB has changed its sound over the millennia to "Hemp" to be called.

It is believed that the root * Kan (n) AB easy to * hanap- has mutated, then the proto-Germanic word * hanapiz was changed, from where the old English haenep, middle Dutch hennep and Old High German hanaf came. From there, we can derive modern forms such as hemp, hennep and hemp.

Hennef, Germany

The city of Hennef in Germany may be the largest and most important settlement, which is named after hemp, and with a traceable history of hemp production. It's been around for over 1000 years, and it's actually possible to see a dramatic etymological evolution in that time. When the city was first mentioned in 1064, it became known as Hannafo. Since then it has been known under different names as Hanapha, Hanfbach and now Hennef.

Hennef cannabis hemp
