600 - 400 BCE: Genesis 1-23 “I give you every seed-bearing plant..."

cannabis plant550 BCE: Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth..." - Genesis 1-23

Note In the first half of the 20th century it was believed that Genesis could be dated to c.950 BCE, but later study has demonstrated that it can not be earlier than the 7th century.

Current theories place it in the exilic and/or post-exilic period (6th-5th centuries BCE) [1] but the date is (of course) subject of vigorous discussion.
