In this valley near Mèo Vac (Vietnam), Cannabis is endemic (indigenous), i.e. it grows naturally everywhere, wild, just like weed. It is not cultivated, it just grows as far as the eye can see, from the side of the road to the top of the hills.
Cannabis plant originates from central asia. You can find more information about Cannabis in this Wikipedia article.
