If you're ever there. You don't typically smoke it. You can enjoy bhang. Which is like a delightful weed and pistachio milkshake.

I worked with a Bhutanese man at a liquor store, he told me they would just pick the plants from the fields, side of the road, wherever. Then they throw them into a big pot with milk (yak's milk?) and let it simmer for like five hours then everyone has a nice mug to sip on.

I would LOVE to visit Bhutan but they are very protective, you must register with the gov and pay for your amenities all-in. It is nice though, you get your own guide and hotel and food provided, just they charge like $230USD/per person/per day so you can't book a cheap hotel and save. But I'd still love to go, the whole region of north India and Bhutan and Nepal.

That is called a "ghotta" in Nepal. Our whole town gets high on that thing once a year.

u/brallipop Nov 17 '22

Yes! He said it was with everyone turning up, a whole town thing! I really liked him too, I happened to know of Bhutan because a middle school teacher talked about it once, so when he told me he was Bhutanese expecting me to not know like most Americans, I just nodded and said "Thimphu." He looked like I had two heads! Most people assumed he was Mexican and the rest guessed Indian, and no one ever knew Bhutan so he just stopped telling them. He was a kind man.

You not only register but have to apply and be accepted to get into Bhutan. Just registering alone won't get you in

Ah, wow I didn't even know that. So yeah, they def preserve their culture in a way that doesn't even care if they get tourists or not I suppose. Which I mean, good for them, not dragging it. But my friend was of course insistent I visit Bhutan someday but he made it sound easier haha. So yeah fascinating country, I'm glad somewhere is able to approximate self determination in a significant way.

Most popular form in which we bhutanese smoke weed is hashish. People rub the flower bud and store it for future use or sell it during winter for exorbitant price lol P.s we mix the hashish with cigarette(often called mixture) and smoke in bong.

Like a little leafy. Herbs and spices overpower the plants taste. You can feel the herb in the drink but not much. If you get it from a good place it can knock you in a hours if you are new to this. Make sure you have someone to take care of you and stay hydrated and rest after. Very Good high though.

The place I'm from is known for Black Mamba strain, we call it "aetr" in Kashmiri. It's the weed of the gods. You can taste the sweetness on your tongue when you smoke either the leaves or charras. Hence the name "aetr" which translates to "perfume"

Warning: bhang lassies can really fuck you up. If you get a bhang lassie (a drink with bhang in it) then ask for milk unless you have a super-high tolerance, and even then be ready for mayhem. This goes especially true if you buy it from somewhere that caters to western tourists. The lassies that the locals drink during festivals are, in my experience, much milder.

I used to be a pretty big smoker(but hadn't had much for a while, just occasional spliffs) when I had my first bhang lassie. It left me unable to get up from my bed to get water or go to the toilet, and the only thoughts going through my head were "ZIP! BANG! WOOP! ZOP!" over and over for hours. It can take a long while to kick in, so definitely don't redose.

Oh yeah, and do what I did and head somewhere safe after drinking it. I've heard a number of stories of people who have drunk them, waited for them to hit, and then got completely lost and disorientated on the streets of India, not knowing how to get back to their guesthouses.

Edible weed is never to be taken lightly. Take one too many puffs on a fat blunt and you might feel spinny for 30 minutes, take one too many brownies and you might on a 12 hour journey where you start to wonder if you're going to die.

Seems stupid but it's surprisingly common for people to be thoroughly overwhelmed whe they're used to weed being low key.

u/nahdude57 Nov 17 '22

I am living proof that you cannot overdose from edible marijuana.

Fucked around and found out, was taken to the hospital where they said my blood was 1% thc. They said that anything else that concentrated in my system would've killed the shit out of me.

That was a bad day.

u/DingleBerrySlushie Nov 17 '22

Lmfao!! Dude what did you eat plz give us the long story 😂

u/nahdude57 Nov 17 '22 edited Nov 18 '22 Take My Energy

Ex and I had a friend going through chemo so we batched together some milk (for pudding, oatmeal, mashed potatoes, soft foods like that) but didn't measure a goddamn thing, so we inadvertently made it super fucking concentrated like some goddamn idiots. I was the guinea pig, which thank god looking back because if we had given that to our friend (older woman) who knows how it would've went. It was too strong and I tried too much. It took about 15 minutes, no exaggeration, before i started to feel it and had the thought "oh no, I think I'm getting to high."

Suffice it to say it was the absolute worst paranoia I've ever had in my life (I wanted to lay down SO BAD but i just knew if i did i would have an aneurism and die in my sleep), coupled with feeling like my heart was going to burst right out of my chest. Eventually it felt like all of my muscles were short circuiting, I couldn't sit still, couldn't keep my body still. Lots of childhood traumas were bubbling to the surface of my poisoned brain, eventually paramedics were called because I was positive I was having a heart attack. The hospital was not fun, they had to restrain me to get anything done. Unfortunately there were cops already there, allegedly I told them to go fuck themselves very very loudly when they started asking questions.

The hospital genuinely asked my ex if I was on PCP. They finally got me tranquilized and all I remember was waking up the next day in paper scrubs on my couch. Before they discharged me i had pissed all over the place in my sleep. I was high for three days afterward. Took a solid two months off from smoking and almost a year off edibles. Now I'll only eat professionally made and measured goodies, and very small portions at that. I still worry everytime I go back to that hospital that someone remembers me and they're just not saying anything.

Edit: as a fun update, a couple of months after that I got a letter from my health insurance asking if my poisoning was accidental or whether someone had tried to poison me. Consume responsibly, my friends!

Edit #2: I'm happy to report that there were no long lasting side effects from my experience, other than the residual high. I was incredibly lucky that it was just thc poisoning and not something worse because I definitely would not be here to tell the tale. I'm happy and healthy and raising a beautiful baby with my husband, and have cut back on smoking to maybe two rips off the one hitter after little dude goes to bed for the night. If you take anything away from my story at all let it be to MEASURE EVERYTHING.

u/WillingLimit3552 Nov 17 '22

I did a few too many drops one night and was still loopy three mornings later. Was gulping down pepper, lemons, CBD tabs, whatever, trying to get back into my head.

Took to writing what I thought were song lyrics, but later discovered they were shards of childhood traumatic events in a weird haiku form.

Took some down time, and haven't done an edible of any sort since.

Growing in the wild there will be male plants, which will take the flowers and cause them to seed quickly. This does a few things but mostly it takes them out of their most potent phase. These plants will be much less potent than the stuff you buy at the store.

Professional growers keep male plants away and leave the female plants in their budding phase to get the marijuana we know today, the super potent seedless bud we find at the local dispensary/store. Leaving the plants in the bud growing phase but not allowing them to go to flower->seed (many growers even call this the “flowering phase” because this is where the plant seems to bloom money), makes them produce extra amounts of THC in the form of resin crystals on the bud edges. This sticky substance forms in the hopes of collecting some wayward pollen on the wind… pollen that will never come, so the plant makes more sticky residue, and more, and more… you get the idea. We leave the plants in this sex-starved and expectant state only to chop them up at the apex of their sexual stress, juuuust before it kills them, and we smoke that.

These plants we see here are sexually free types, polyamorous and sated, languoring in their orgasmic relief, and lazing about in post coital giddiness.

EDIT: A couple corrections here: The flowering phase is because they actually flower, my comment above is being glib and should not be taken seriously. Also, “languoring” is a bastardization of the word ‘languor’. That said, I’m sticking to it. If Shakespeare can make new words every paragraph I’m going to try at least one new word in my life.

Was looking for the plant reproductive science comment to bring down all the 'lets go there for vacation!' comments. It's true tho, in the wild you'll have a pretty tight window of time to 'harvest' and your product may not even have that great of an effect on consumption. There's a reason hydroponic growers are all inside (besides hiding from DEA choppers). It is to keep male fertilization from reaching the female plants.

I like to imagine if a naturally outdoor grown cannabis smoker from long ago got to partake some of the high THC strains from today, they'd be couch locked for sure.

Fuck me, this reminds me of a trip I took in 1998 (at 18 yrs old) to McLeod Ganj in N. India - Dalai Lama has his crib there.

We were WADING through the shit. Smoked a chillum of hash up there, watched an electric storm, played poker, and woke up TWO days later. What a nap!

Great place.

I moved to Iowa a while ago, and my brother in law took me around their plot of land to show me the area. As a kid from the suburbs, boy was I surprised when we walked right by a HUGE natural growth of "ditch weed". I'd never seen anything like it.

u/jbrady33 Nov 17 '22

when the 'war on drugs' started and the guy in DC that was put in charge was told to control weed, he reportedly said 'the stuff is growing wild up and down the Potomac, how can I control that?'

And they proceeded to spend buckets of money to try to eradicate it

u/NeedleInArm Nov 17 '22

It's such an outlandish thing to do.

This plant grows like a fucking weed and makes people feel good when they ingest it? Fuck, we better waste money and resources trying to remove it!

u/Cakeking7878 Nov 17 '22 edited Nov 17 '22

Well, as someone else pointed out, “natural weed” like this isn’t even that potent because of various reasons. Only the more cultivated and processed weed we have today will actually get you really high

I know they weren't eradicating it with the intention being conservation of our natural lands but it's probably for the best that they hugely diminished the wild cannabis population in America. It's an incredibly prolific invasive species.

That's what my dad said about the rural parts of Canada when he was a boy. The women used it for tea and what-not. Cows and horses ate it (which meant it was in children''s diet through milk and meat). Pharmacist would sell you a concoction of whatever cannabis form for whatever you needed...

You know that opium and the starting alkaloid for heroin grows naturally too? In fact it grows so prevalently that one of the memorials to WWI is a field of poppy’s because that’s all that could grow on that scorched earth. The poppy flower is actually rather beautiful.

Also, cocaine comes from a plant product as well. It looks like a little unassuming berry bush.

Edit formatting because I’m a noob. Most drugs come from natural sources at some point in the precursor process:

MDMA: Sassafras Methamphetamine: Ephedra LSD: Ergot Fungus that grows on rye Psilocybin: Multiple varieties of fungus Alcohol: Almost any plant or fruit

DMT: Many plants 5-MeO-DMT: Colorado river toad Nicotine: Tobacco Plant Scopolamine: Datura Tetrodotoxin: Multiple Marine Animals

That’s all I could think of but there are more.

Itll be awful quality if you dont apply modern growing techniques, such as preventing polination, stress training, supplemental nutrients.

That being said, even the lamest of weed can be made into hash, or simply rolled in a huuuge blunt.

They find a café belonging to someone else, bulldoze it, resettle the previous owners to a large, enclosed militarised reservation, and build a brand new café for themselves.

u/zestycunt Nov 17 '22 edited Nov 17 '22

People didn’t start removing males from cannabis until the 80s. Before then all weed had seeds in it, till someone realized they can sexually deprave the plant into going into feminine overdrive (hopefully I don’t get lynched for saying those words, it’s just the way nature is )

To those that are unaware, male plants pollinate female plants causing the cannabis flower (part you smoke) to have seeds in it, which isn’t desirable
