Kender (Hemp) Place Names in Hungary

According to Balasa and Ortutay (1979), hemp cultivation and weaving were among the oldest Hungarian cultural traits, possibly because these local occupations were partly among the oldest Hungarian handicrafts. The hemp weaving culture of Hungary is much older than flax, which cannot be compared in importance to hemp in the Carpathian basin of Slavic origin, known as ‘len’ in Hungarian.

For example, the traditional national dress of Hungary is made of hemp fabric. On the other hand, linguistic evidence indicates that certain uses of cannabis are more recent. The word ‘kender’, which means cannabis in Hungarian, derives from the Turkish word cannabis, which stems from the fact that Hungary was under Ottoman rule from the middle of the 16th century to the end of the 18th century. So, while hemp weaving is such an old tradition, why didn’t it have a name until the 16th century? Possibly the Turkish version of the word has replaced its previous Hungarian, or the history of cannabis is not as old as claimed in Hungary.
