It was the scientist Jean-Baptiste Lamarck who first named Cannabis Indica in 1785. That year he published a description of the plant, which was the second known species of Cannabis in the West. Lamarck described this new species after observing specimens of the plant which had been collected in India, and these plants apparently originated in the region of the Hindu Kush mountain range.
