NORTH KOREA

10 posts in this topic

"According to multiple reports from defectors, visitors and experts, North Korea either has no law against the sale and consumption of weed, or it has a law that is largely unenforced. "...

" Just last week, a 29-year-old freelance writer from England wrote an account on his blog explaining how he purchased a grocery bag full of weed at an indoor market in rural North Korea and smoked it with impunity both at outdoor parks and monuments, as well as in restaurants and bars. "

LOL, our world is sometimes ironic and also very interesting.

Trotzdem, I don't think there will be any rush at the ticket counter to buy tickets to North Korea...

Well, Dennis Rodman got in there. 

 

Wow!  Interesting that there actually was a discussion about North Korea.  But I guess if there are people suffering, who could benefit from the plant or its economic boost, then North Korea might be such a place.

Yes, believe it or not, but it seems that North Korea doesn't have any specific laws concerning Cannabis.

 

Look at 1:54 and 8:03 . (Or the full video)

Well, after seeing those magnificent waves and gnarly tubes, maybe there will be a rush after all.

 

Free internet!!!  (Or is it 'freedom from internet'...?)  Virtually no telephone or cellphone systems.  There's little chance that we would be able to follow this expedition LIVE.

 

Unless you took along satellite internet equipment, but their military watchers might take issue with that.  Hell, they might be so jealous, they might just take your equipment, and that would be the end of the issue.

 

That plant looked Sativa-like.  I wonder whether it was imported or maybe North Korea has a landrace...     Oh, it appears it IS a landrace growing wild throughout Korea, a left-over from thousands of years of cultivation for fiber...   Here's an out-take from another online blog related to the two links provided near the top of this thread.  It sounds as though it is a strange-smelling smoke with relatively little cannabinoid content:

 

     -     "     The expert in question is a man named Matthew Reichel, who has travelled to North Korea over thirty times as director of the Pyongyang Project, a social enterprise focused on promoting building initiatives. Reichel is quoted as stating, ‘It looks a little bit similar if you haven’t smoked a lot of weed’, but ‘if you smoke that stuff it’ll smell weird but it won’t get you high’.

They acknowledge the fact that industrial hemp is grown throughout North Korea, but state that it contains ‘just a fraction of the THC found in regular cannabis’; they also state that it may be possible for farmers to cultivate their own stash, but that ‘the drug would certainly not be smoked in public’.     "     -

 

But maybe these travelling reporters simply haven't met the right people yet.  And maybe one of these days, we'll be lucky enough to have someone join us who had lived among the cannabis cultivators in northern North Korea.

About us

Strain Hunters is a series of documentaries aimed at informing the general public about the quest for the preservation of the cannabis plant in the form of particularly vulnerable landraces originating in the poorest areas of the planet.

Cannabis, one of the most ancient plants known to man, used in every civilisation all over the world for medicinal and recreational purposes, is facing a very real threat of extinction. One day these plants could be helpful in developing better medications for the sick and the suffering. We feel it is our duty to preserve as many cannabis landraces in our genetic database, and by breeding them into other well-studied medicinal strains for the sole purpose of scientific research.
