The divergence of the genus Cannabis from its sister genus Humulus has been estimated on the basis of molecular data to have occurred approximately 21 million years ago (Yang et al. 2013; Divashuk et al. 2014). Because of the genetic closeness, hop provides a standard of comparison. The relationship of the common hop to humans is astonishingly parallel to the relationship of C. sativa to humans. As detailed in the following, both have numerous qualities preadapting and predisposing them to being developed by people for a wide range of similar products and purposes.

Hop cones and hemp seeds are employed in food and both contain compounds with considerable antioxidant effects. Antioxidants protect against substances called free radicals, generated during metabolism, which are thought to worsen a range of diseases, including heart disease, stroke, and certain cancers. In the case of cannabis, several of the cannabinoids are antioxidants, as well as such components as vitamin E in the seeds. In hops, the health-promoting antioxidants include prenylated flavonoids, which are accordingly found in beer.
