In modern English the term “Messiah” translates as the “anointed one”. “Christ” is the Greek translation of the Hebrew “Messiah”. The title of Christ only applies to he who had “God’s unction upon him”.

There’s a recipe in the Bible (specifically, in Exodus 30:22-23) for this “holy anointing oil”. You take six pounds of Kaneh-bosem (a substance identified by researchers as cannabis), mix it with about six quarts of olive-oil and add a variety of other fragrant herbs. The ancient anointed ones, Jesus Christ among them, were apparently drenched in this mixture.

Now, as we all know, most modern stoners tend to smoke or eat cannabis but, when the active ingredient is extracted into an oil-based medium and applied to the skin it is absorbed into the blood stream.

“In the new Testament, Jesus baptised none of his disciples, as is practised by the Catholic church, but instead anointed them with this potent entheogenic oil, sending out the 12 apostles to do the same. ‘And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them’ (Mark 6:14).”

An article by Chris Bennet (link below) addresses the use of cannabis by early Christians, concluding that today’s anti-cannabis laws are, historically, anti-Christian, which delivers a mighty smack in the face to our pious, right-wing, so-called Christian politicians who uphold them.
