Default Hmm here's a thought......

Ok so i was just on wikipedia. Found out that hops and cannibis are in the same family of plants. They also have roughly the same alpha acid content and pungency, depending on breed and form. Hmm, legal issues aside and hypothetically, i wander what a good brew with the use of various cannibis strains as opposed to(or in conjuction with) different hops would be like... What are you guys takes???

Sigh. It's that time of the month, huh? I guess that means my mortgage payment is due.

This is probably going to get locked pretty soon so just search and there are tons of of threads about the same thing. The conclusion is that it would be ridiculously expensive to achieve anything from it.

For the record before this gets locked. We use the FLOWERS of the hops. Not the fooking leaves.

I know this topic comes up fairly often, but what's amusing to me this time is that my hippie stoner dreadlock buddy asked me the same question last night..

So then I proposed the idea to him. I make a batch and we can dry hop it with 2 oz. of his KB. I waited for the shock on his face to dissipate. I dont think he was aware of the quantity involved.

HOWEVER... then we came up with a potential solution. Leaf matter is too grassy, and buds are too expensive, but every harvest there's a pile of "fluff" (small loose buds) and a whole lot of stems that have the same aroma as the buds. If he gets me the materials, I'm going to draw off a gallon of my next IPA to a jug and dry hop with that.

And yes, I know the THC is not water soluble. I'm going more for aroma than buzz.

Correct, it is not soluable in water; however, it is soluable in alcohol (I think).
