Re: Cambodia needs to take a page from Thailand!

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

The sticks were just the traditional way of packaging it. Before baggies.
Wrapping them on sticks again now seems just a new marketing ploy.
The very particular qualities of the old thai varieties were what made them legendary - not the bamboo stick and hemp thread.

(so so) Sadly those strains now seem to be totally extinct from all (knowledgeable) reports i can find.
The strains needed continuous seed selection to prevent them regressing back to hemp.
Sativa generally is particularly prone to turn hermaphrodite. If these plants are not removed they soon pollinate into the whole crop, and in a few years they will nearly all be hermies, or just poor quality.

The strictly enforced prohibition that occurred from the 1980's totally broke that whole traditional culturing of these unique varieties. Once gone, it would take a hundred years of traditional farming to bring them back.

Let me know if i am wrong. I would love nothing more than to find they still exist in some hidden hills.
But, i will know for sure if it is fake - if you ever had the privilege, you remember the real thing for the rest of your life. Unique.

Some people would say that thailand will not legalise pot becuase corrupt officials make far too much money from illegal crops...
Three's not really enough product on the street for the officials to making any serious money. Let's hope this fairs better for them and sets a trend the neighbors can covet.
seems to be plenty of thai product on the street in Cambodia
I haven't seen any of that red string crap. You know something I don't know? :beer3:
I was told by a friend. Apparently the quality has been improved by blending but i can't confirm that as am the only barang in cambodia who does not consume pharmaceuticals

Hopefully, some country in the region will legalise it soon.

I'd like to try a little of it before I die. I've heard it makes you "high". :wink:
Doesn't make me high, just hungry and sick. Some people are allergic to the stuff, for those of you who didn't know, and it can have an unpleasant reaction like vomiting and paralysis. Don't wear your best shirt if you decide to have a giggle and blow it in my face

Thai Sticks are making a comeback
Anyhow I will let you read on -

(I better make clear Andy did not write this ^^^ - it is from the link, "honestmarijuana", a fount of ancient truth)

Hilarious, this 17 year old stoners fantasy. Every siiiingle word is bald faced bulldust.
The naive dangerous arrogance of the pig ignorant deluded - spinning ancient wisdoms which came in a dream last night.

well worth the read
