Washington harvested 5,000 pounds his first crop – of fiber that is – as well as 152 bushels of cannabis seeds his first year.

“George Washington was eulogized as America’s first in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen,” opened Bryan W. Brickner, “yet George our birthday boy wasn’t the first in everything; not in hemp for instance, though he did grow a lot of it … for more than three decades.”
In We the People, Publius and George Washington’s Birthday Cannabinoids ~ New Science on the Bryan William Brickner Blog, Washington’s 283rd birthday and 34 years of growing cannabinoids are celebrated. Publius, of The Cannabis Papers: A citizen’s guide to cannabinoids (2011), showcases four 2015 National Institutes of Health (PubMed) cannabinoid system (CS) articles discussing: epilepsy and FAAH cannabinoid competition, pharmacoresistant epilepsy in children and CS treatments, our medical community in need of cannabinoid science, and further evidence of CS neuroplasticity (this time it’s the hippocampus).
“George Washington was born 22 February 1732,” noted Brickner, “and he grew his first cannabinoids, fields of hemp, at the age of 33 in the year 1765, ten years before becoming General Washington in 1775.”
“Washington first grew pot for the King,” continued Brickner, “as there was a Crown hemp bounty – a cash bonus colonial farmers would collect to try hemp. Washington harvested 5,000 pounds his first crop – of fiber that is – as well as 152 bushels of cannabis seeds his first year.”
“Washington noted all of this 250 years ago in his farm notes from his first cannabinoid crop,” Brickner closed, “and Publius discusses George’s hemp in The Cannabis Papers, essay number 11, Washington’s hemp seed love.”
The Cannabis Papers is available at online retailers and for free by download.
