Cannabis Sativa is an annual plant in the Cannabaceae family. It is a herb that has been used throughout recorded history by humans as a source of fiber, for its seed oil, as food, as medicine and for spiritual purposes. Different parts of the plant have different uses, and different varieties are cultivated in different ways and harvested at different times, depending on the purpose for which it is grown.
Cannabis or Ganja is associated with Shiva, who is popularly believed to like the hemp plant.
Ganja is not only offered to Shiva, but also consumed by Shaivite yogis. Charas is smoked by some Shaivite devotees and cannabis itself is seen as a gift ("prasad" or offering) to Shiva to aid in sadhana. According to one description, when Amrita or the elixir of life was produced from the churning of the ocean by the gods and the demons, Shiva created Cannabis from his own body to purify the elixir (whence, for cannabis, the epithet angaj or body-born).
