Christopher Columbus or the Vikings

Did Christopher Columbus introduce cannabis to the new world or was it the vikings?

No one can for sure say what was going on back in the days, but history says that Columbus was the first one to bring cannabis to the US and that he also used hemp for his rope and sails. 

But history is also saying that the vikings used hemp for rope and sails, so who was first? 

It's pretty interesting to read about the history of cannabis and hemp and how it has changed and helped so many people.

 

''The land groweth full of Hempe which groweth of it selfe, which is as good as possibly may be seene, and as strong.”

- Giovanni de Verrazano  year 1524
