5.0 out of 5 stars Very Interesting, Dense, A Great Reference May 2 2000
By Hannah A. Peck - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is more about ancient history and the origins of religion than marijuana. It even touches on the philosophy of conciousness and linguistics. It reads like an extensive research paper or thesis (with footnotes on every page and an impressive bibliography). It took me a whole year to get through it all! Green Gold The Tree of Life: Marijuana in Magic and Religion quotes respected historians such as Mircea Eliade and famous authors such as Terrance McKenna. It has inspired me to read more into the history of religion. It is a very valueable resource for anyone interested in the scholarly side of pychadelic history and the anthropological effects. This book convinces me that every religion has at one time been influenced by and intertwined with drug use. Today marijuana is an illegal drug used for medical and recreational purposes. In the past, it was also an important part of spiritual practices worldwide.

5.0 out of 5 stars Prerequisite for understanding religion April 10 2006
By David D. Dunn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is an excellent work. Well researched, well documented. Anyone interested in the formation, foundations and practices of religion ought to read this book.

The role of cannabis in the formation of religious belief, thought and spirituality is well presented.

It presents a very broad view of the conflict between organized religion and cannabis users throughout history. The period of time of the Inquisition and the Roman Catholic Church's role in persecuting hemp using Christian believers is well done.

Anyone interested in going into religious work of whatever faith ought to read this book. It will give you a better understanding of the history of your beliefs, where they came from and how cannabis has played a major part in the formation of those belief systems.

It's also a good book for anyone interested in getting a better understanding of your own belief system.

This book ought to be reissued and printed again.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Rare Find Feb. 6 2013
By John Shiloh - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is an awesome book about the religious use of cannabis in the ancient world. If you can find a copy of this book, definitely pick it up. The author's current works are better and more elaborate, but I wanted this one for my book collection because it's out of print and a hard to find item in the book world. I also learned a few things that weren't covered in the author's recent published books and/or articles.
5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome little known history. Feb. 21 2014
By michael martin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is essentially a history of religion and religious ideas just as well as a history of cannabis use. Chock full of interesting history and facts as well as speculation to keep your mind wandering for days. Took me a few months to read it as it wasn't an easy book for me to just read cover to cover. Would recommend to anyone interested in history, spirituality, or a combination of the two.
