Evolving Cannabis Consumption: Tracing the Path from Ancient Rituals to Today's Technologically Advanced Smoking Devices and 3Pursuits Product Innovations

In past eras, consuming cannabis was a luxury afforded only to some. As a prized possession, it was left for the elite population or for significant religious and medical occasions. Its consumption methods were simple and pure, representing its religious and therapeutic significance. However, as centuries passed, these methods began evolving continuously to create a more user-centric and convenient experience. Today, we have moved far beyond the basic hand-rolled joints and pipes, welcoming an era of technological innovations and accessory advancements.

First, let's take a step back into the past. ##Ancient Civilizations and Cannabis Consumption

The use of cannabis dates back to as early as 3rd millennium BC. In different cultures and religions, it was used in a variety of ways. From burning the seeds or leaves and inhaling the smoky vapor to steeping these in hot water or tea, cannabis was considered a potent medicinal and spiritual plant.

In the Iliad, Homer talks about a potion called Nepenthe, thought to contain cannabis, which induced forgetfulness in those who consumed it. Ancient Chinese texts mention Emperor Shen Nung who used cannabis for its medicinal properties as early as 2737 BC.

The ancient Egyptians too left evidence of their cannabis use in the form of scattered cannabis pollen found in the tomb of Pharaoh Ramses II. Cannabis was a significant part of their culture, employed for pain relief during childbirth and even for menstrual pain.

As cannabis traveled across different continents and societies, its consumption methods evolved according to the requirements of those societies.

##From Rudimentary to Elegant: The Evolution of Smoking
Later centuries saw the advent of more convenient and efficient smoking methods, courtesy of various technological advancements. Hand-rolled joints and pipes were fine, but they lack the finesse of some of the modern devices.

Among consumers, one of the most popular devices is the water pipe or the bong. Today’s bongs come in all shapes and sizes, but the most advanced one in the line is the Gravity Bong.
