A well earned subscribe.
The Kurgan from Highlander shoulda been much more chill.
Ah, now I see how the Roman empire fell…🤨
Cause they got high…
Does anyone want to come to my new weed cave and get high with me?
No lieing low life Marxist history teachers were jailed in the making of this vidio.
Could the woman with the grain and poppy represent opium and ergot fungus? Later synthesis obviously produced LSD, I wouldn't doubt that it hadn't been done before 1900..
Edit*** ergot was covered 30 seconds after I typed this comment lmao
Thank you for this online class.
I would fucking love to go back and give MDMA to roman elites at parties
Those poppy seeds definitely contained a fair bit of morphine. Eaten even in small snack quantities they would be noticeable effects. Probably added to the popularity of the snack at the time
If Scythians were burning Hemp in their Sweat Lodges, they would have not gotten high from it. Hemp is non psychoactive. They were burning Cannabis, most likely.
Have you ever found any Roman (or other ancient) recipes for hemp seeds?
Get me some milk of the poppy going and shit toss a couple of them mandrakes in too, I got a line wrapped around the castle to ask me peasant shit all day -One of them OG Yarls
Sounds like they used opium to deal with PTSD. An emperor can't sleep without it and they gave it to heros
I got all excited about to find out what the ancient drug of choice was and you start out with a burial mound? I don't like where this is headed. You just killed my buzz. lol
Oracle of Delphi used drugs
Everyone used to follow Indian culture
This man’s voice has a dramatically soporific effect on me….I haven’t watched many of his videos, but the end result is always the same! Snooooooooze!
The point is that they are very strong men and lived basically for practicing exercises and fight, and food in that time haved many more vitamins, protein and etc. So, for one of those kind of men had hallucinations or some “bad trip” in those times it will had to be a big quantity of opium and marijuana

So a BCE bong 😎
I honestly wouldn't be surprised if the reason we don't know a lot about ancient Greek and Roman recreational drug use is the same as why it took so long to figure out how certain tools were used; it could have been so commonplace that no one thought to write it down.
Oh my gosh, you're answering all the ancient Rome questions I never knew I had.
amateurs, anyone who's seen History of the World (part 1) knows that it features the historically accurate "Roman Red" bud
Would suck if another dark age occurred, museums would be looted etc.. so much history would be lost
Really cool ancient drug video narrated by Data from Star Trek TNG
Great vid bro
Romans going to the bathhouse: “dont forget to bring a towel”
This reminds me of the scene in Conan the Barbarian, where Conan and Subatai went and bought drug from some dealer who promised that they're consuming black lotus. Later high on drug, Conan punched out a camel.
The statue in the thumbnail looks like Mark Zuckerberg
Hot Boxing with the boys lol
Them Christianity are around and saw drugs as something that would cloud the mind to the god
What is the evidence to suggest that ancient doctors did not know the addictive properties of opium?
Or for that matter what evidence exists to suggest that these were strictly medically used? (By the modern western definition of the word medicinal)
Contemporaries commenting “giddy” and “uncontrollable” suggests lightweights; they were not vipers. I am sure that soldiers going into battle, especially siege assaults were very high. I also read Roger Crowley saying that tens of thousand of musical instruments were found on battlefields after Constantinople sieges. They had months and months to get the dope and practice music to have fun and to drive the Byzantines (more) crazy.
Any evidence of opium use powering the Roman legions through all the horrific battles they endured?
Dude, where's my chariot?
I don't know, dude. Where's your chariot?
wow! that part about the (pretty much) assisted suicide really surprised me!
Maybe Diogenes was just stuck in a trip or something haha
Very shallow research.
I thought Marijuana only came from the western hemisphere
Oh to get crossfaded with an off-duty Ancient Greek hoplite
…on the plus side it was good for ear aches… SCORE
That relief carving of Demeter is beautiful
