In a time when our species is rushing headlong toward committing suicide of the entire species, a time of mass extinction unmatched since the The Permian–Triassic (P–Tr) extinction event, commonly known as the Great Dying, we see the lowly Cannabis plant. A very ancient plant, unchanged for millions of years. Now there are millions of people, all over this globe of ours, safeguarding it, safeguarding it’s genetic heritage, both keeping pure strains found in the wild for breeding purposes, and, naturally, crossbreeding those to create even better offspring. People willing to put themselves in harms way, to accomplish this task. It is easy for me to think that Cannabis may well be one of the last plants to go, when this world becomes uninhabitable for humans.
My thought is - Who is domesticating whom?
