it was nice, it feels smooth, it tastes really fruity, i couldnt get a good smell off of it, i was smoking out my window, but the taste really sits in your mouth nicely.

im feeling a bit of a body high, kind of a warm feeling, really relaxed

It's all confirmation bias.

I tried it, of course.  When I first heard the idea 20 years ago, I thought it was ridiculous.  The only way to find out was to try it.  I found smoking hops to be a harsh, unpleasant experience.  My experience was nothing like the OP's.

In a dilapidated part of the city I work in, there was a spray painted post on a abandoned building. The quote is as follows: "Word on the street is strap...so smoke on fool.

This quote in no way reflects on my opinion of original poster but I think I'll just take my hops in a bottle.

Cheers!

I'll stick to my pipe tobacco, thanks...

I don’t know why you would want to smoke hops but I agree with Denny. You know they sell hop candy and put hop oil is some chap sticks? I think your euphoria was more than likely due to your accomplishment of doing the act.

Btw, did you smoke a pellet or a whole cone? Which “strain”?

I think I might try smoking some Fuggles in my Little Chief smoker...

i mixed it with a bit of weed too, i guess it also depends on the type, i used glacier hops
