Hemp refers to a textile that was actively produced and exported in ancient India.—By the time trade with the Roman Empire reached its peak, India was a major exporter of textiles (eg., Hemp), specially cotton and silk. India produced large quantities of coarser but very useful fabrics from fibres such as hemp (bhāṅga in early texts, extracted from the bark of cannabis).
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
