A team of researchers just examined 110 different marijuana genomes to figure out the origin of the plant. Their findings put the genesis of Cannabis sativa in northwest China.

The research combined 82 newly sourced genomes with 28 publicly available genomes for hemp and drug-type cannabis plants.
This article is talking about Sativa being from China. There is also the Indica species which appears to have originated in the Hindu Kush mountains.
So that's why they call it kush. I was wondering where the hell that name came from.
