The answer is Yes.you can

In the bible, according to Matthew chapter 23

1 Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples: 2 “The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. 3 So you must be careful to do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach. 4 They tie up heavy, cumbersome loads and put them on other people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them.

5 “Everything they do is done for people to see: They make their phylacteries[a] wide and the tassels on their garments long; 6 they love the place of honor at banquets and the most important seats in the synagogues; 7 they love to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces and to be called ‘Rabbi’ by others.

8 “But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers.””

Psalm 104:14, “He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth;”

A widely accepted Christian tenet originates in Corinthians 6:19-20, the idea that the body is a temple of the Holy Spirit. Luke, an apostle of Jesus who wrote one of the Gospels, was a physician who prescribed medication frequently according to Colossians 4:14. Using these verses as a relative guide, it can be determined that medicine and herbs are acceptable for treating one’s own temple, and cannabis is no different in this light.

For recreational use, it gets a little tricky. Many are aware of Christianity’s favoritism towards alcohol; Jesus’ first recorded miracle was turning water into wine, after all, according to John 2:1-11. Wine remains a sacred substance of the Christian rite, though getting outright drunk is seemingly both frowned upon, according to Ephesians 5:18, “And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery, but be filled with the Spirit,” and celebrated, according to Psalm 104:15, “and wine to gladden the heart of man.” Moderation seems to be the key, as the Bible also encourages its followers to remain alert and clear according to 1 Peter 5:8, though it’s hard to imagine that if alcohol is acceptable, cannabis isn’t.

Historically, Biblical scholars insist that the “holy herb” commonly referenced in numerous Bible verses and books is the cannabis plant itself as well, as it was a common crop in the region and its psychoactive properties weren’t unknown. The word “cannabis” saw its first origins in the Neo-Assyrian and Neo-Babylonian word qunnabu, used to refer to the plant as “a way to produce smoke.” Qunnabu would be adopted by the Scythians of modern-day eastern Iran and the Thracians of eastern Europe, eventually evolving into the Greek kánnabis and the Hebrew qannabōs, a component of biblical holy anointing oil according to Exodus 30:22-30, referring to cannabis as kaneh-bosem. Cannabis would become its Latin counterpart, which has remained to this day.
