It is often my friends and I drive down to this gorgeous wetland near Delhi which is home to the fabulous  Sarus Cranes.( see the featured image) .

However this trip ; the flora had me   knocked  out. I share this  herbaceous and fascinating  plant Cannabis sativa with you.

Just a short drive from where Formula One Cars zip ( near Greater Noida)  is this Road of Cannabis growing wild and free.

The cannabis bushes on either side of the road are about 7 feet high( over 2 m). The road/ dirt track  stretches for several kilometers.

A local villager who accompanied us mentions that all need to do is rub the leaves between your hands for about 10 minutes. Then ingress it  by smoking and you are knocked out for two days.It was surely the HIGH ROAD.

Cannabis sativa does have medicinal properties. What is amazing is the amount that is growing wild.
