I've heard that rope made from hemp is really splintery and chafe-y.
The kanji for cannabis and hemp is two trees under a dotted cliff, or possibly two plants hanging in a shed, like this:

Relevant? Who cares, that's awesome.
Pre-Zen Shinto had a cannabis mystery school. The Zen influx took it into part of their ascetic-monk-warrior tradition (i.e. the guys living in the monasteries up on then ridges were the ones drinking a Bhang-like drink, and testing each others mettle ON WEED)... if I remember my mythology research correctly...
The wandering Zen poet Issa Kobayashi writes:
The cannabis around my hut
also has suffered
From summer thinness.
Just when I hear
The sundown bell,
The flower of this weed.
Basho the Haiku Master writes:
The cannabis- How wonderful it is!
The summer drawing room.
Trees and stones, just as they are.
Ah, how glorious!
The young leaves, the green leaves,
Glittering in the sunshine!
