The Bible always left out the best part about the fourth wise man.

The descriptions and lists of spices that were used in incense offerings is a long and confusing one (IIRC, there are several in the Biblical lists that we're not sure what they are) - there's even a part where they talk about soaking the wood in Cypriot wine toi make a more pungent smell. The text then suggests "urine might be better suited to the purpose, but we don't bring urine into the Temple out of respect".

// anyway, "pleasing smell" (rayach hanichoach, in Hebrew) is a common alternative term for incense offerings, and it would very much stand to reason that cannabis would have been involved

My favorite class when getting my Psychology degree was Behavioral Effects of Psychoactive Drugs. It was taught by an elderly Jewish psychiatrist, one of the coolest professors I've ever known (he brought a bag of psychoactive Amanita muscaria mushrooms he'd collected to class one day as a prop, and gave them to me after the class was over, on the condition that I write and submit a trip report).

Anyway, on the first day of class, he put up a slide on the overhead projector. It was a page from the Torah, written in Hebrew, listing the ingredients for the temple incense. He pointed out where it included cannabis. The syllables were literally "ka- na-ba" (or similar). He then put up a slide with the same passage from the King James bible, showing how the passage had been erroneously translated to say "sweet flag" (calamus) instead of cannabis.

I dunno, from the few times I've hung out with hippies, a "pleasing smell" is NOT how I would describe cannabis.
