"Hemp" in Armenian
Greetings Armenoforumers.

Is there a proper Indo-European word for "hemp" in Armenian? And, if so, what is the earliest occurrence in classical Armenian sources?

I know it's everybody's favorite plant nowadays, but I'm writing a paper on Indo-European plant and plant product names. My ancient machine has a lot of font problems, so I'd appreciate any answer in Roman script.

Thanks in advance.

My essay on hemp was published as God's Gift: A Survey of Cannabis in the Bible. You can download the free pdf here:

Thanks again.

just my few cents on this ...

hemp in Armenian was also called djout (pronounced jute). There is also an Armenian word hanpa used by the armenians in turkey ...

BTW-In Turkish there is also a delish made from it and it is called KUNEPHE, Note that U is spelled here as A
