HEMP Cannabis

See the post by out friend MAN- -“Armenia to follow Calif. on HEMP???”


The Armenian word for Hemp is ԿԱՆԵՓ/Kanep.

Below in the Aramatakan, the weed,/plant is primarily treated as a source of fiber, be it fine as linen or coarse as rope. As to how “hemp” ended up as Kanep in the Armenian?



Ajarian meanders around until finally he comes to my impression of the word , its relation to Cannabis. Even then he does not connect it to the modern day connection of it to Marijuana, except, at one point he does mention that one time, before the advent of wine and other alcoholic beverages, hemp was used to make a “liquor” as an anesthetic and analgesic, -հակցաւ (pain relieving) medicine.**

The Armenian word for Hemp is ԿԱՆԵՓ/Kanep.



Hemp is refined into products like hemp seed foods, hemp oil, wax, resin, rope, cloth, pulp, paper, and fuel.




Cannabis, also known as marijuana[3] (from the Mexican Spanish marihuana), and by numerous other names,a[›] is a preparation of the Cannabis plant intended for use as a psychoactive drug and as medicine.[4][5][6] Pharmacologically, the principal psychoactive constituent of cannabis is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC); it is one of 483 known compounds in the plant,


To not forget that in Arabic the weed is known as hashish, which simply means grass, weed. And see the connection of hashashin to assassin.

Please, don’t feel obligated to respond. I am just, talking to myself in the mirror, learning and teaching myself.


In school we learned that there are three fibrous plants

Voush, Flax


Kanep <cannabis


And Ktavat***.. Seems like this is a repetition of one or the other. Except that we know Ktav means Linen/Linseed.. My suspicion is justified, It the same as Voush. See below from Armatakan and Batsatrakan.


Linseed. Flax Seed

PS. If one were to search the net for ԿՏԱՒ ԿՏԱՎ most and all will refer to the artist’s, painter’s cloth canvas, like those, among others, of Ayvazovsky and Sarian.. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canvas

**Does Ցաւըդ տանեմ mean let me be your Analgesic? :silly:

*** Կտաւատ/Ktavat sounds like the seed of, ie. hat, hatik grain.
