A Scientist in Jamaica Is Recreating the ‘Supreme Ganja’ That Bob Marley Used to Smoke

Meet Dr. Machel Emanuel, a botanist at the University of The West Indies in Kingston, Jamaica. Between traversing the Caribbean to find seeds and the work he’s doing in his own garden, he’s trying to re-create “Supreme Ganja” – the strain once smoked by Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Bunny Wailer and other reggae icons in the 50s, 60s and 70s. Cultivation of this strain was abandoned in the 80s during the “war on drugs” in favor of easier-to-hide hybrids. But, thanks to the work of this good doctor, you may again be able to experience Bob Marley level highs.
