    The vikings did have the Ulfberht sword which was made from Damascus steel.At that time the strongest material for swords.Technique was gained somewhere else.

    In volcanic soil we trust

    Whether your checkin out bud porn or regular porn from 1975, you wont catch anyone trimming thier bush
    BTW that pluton sucked. We grew it outside-looked awesome, smelled great, everything but when dried, it had 0% high.
    I see it as a kind of wonder drug of our time - Dr.Lester Grinspoon
    In 1895, ‘Arabs . . . Armenians
    [and] Turks’ grew Cannabis indica in central California to supply hash
    to compatriots in San Francisco, and to smoke ‘kiff’ themselves.
    Additionally, the u.s. army planted
    marijuana in Panama in the 1920s for testing its effects on soldiers
    The Dutch paid the Khoisan in 1713 with drugs rather than
    food, goods or cash.
    For the purposes of this research, Roger Adams had obtained red oil extract of the plant legally from the United States Department of the Treasury

        The answer is no the Vikings didn't smoke anything. Smoking tech was a New World thing (and maybe, possibly, an African thing) brought back to Europe by the Spanish along with tobacco.
        Of course the Vikings came in contact with the Inuit but eskimos don't grow tobacco.
        The Vikings grew and used cannabis for textiles. To waterproof and fix holes in their ships, to make rope and clothing.
        Did the Vikings use cannabis for shamanistic purposes or to get high? There isn't any direct evidence. But they had settled in Britain by 1000 CE where the local peasants were baking mind-altering bread. 'Poppies, hemp, and darnel were scavanged, dried, and ground up to produce a medieval hash brownie known as 'crazy bread.'' (Cannabis: Evolution and Ethnobotany by Robert C. Clarke and Mark D. Merlin)
        Maybe Viking farmers made a similar product but it would have been made from hemp not psychoactive drug cannabis. There isn't evidence they were manufacturing or trading in Hashish or that drug cannabis use was an important part of their culture.

          There may not be evidence that they were trading or using it but they certainly were in contact with cultures that used it.
          I'd be highly surprised if there was never a viking age Scandinavian that did not try it at some point.



          https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volga_trade_route

          The Volga trade route was established by the Varangians (Vikings) who settled in Northwestern Russia in the early 9th century. About 10 km (6 mi) south of the Volkhov River entry into Lake Ladoga, they established a settlement called Ladoga (Old Norse: Aldeigjuborg).[1] Archaeological evidence suggests Rus trading activities along the Volga trade route as early as the end of the 8th century. The earliest and the richest finds of Arabic coins in Europe were discovered on the territory of present-day Russia, particularly along the Volga, at Timerevo in the district of Yaroslavl. A hoard of coins found at Petergof, near Saint Petersburg, contains twenty coins with graffiti in Arabic, Turkic (probably Khazar) runic, Greek, and Old Norse runic, the latter accounting for more than half of the total. These coins include Sassanid, Arab, and Arabo-Sassanid dirhams, the latest of them dated to 804-805.[2] Having examined major finds of Arabic coins in Eastern Europe, Valentin Yanin conclusively demonstrated that the earliest monetary system of early Russia was based on the early type of dirham minted in Africa.[3]

            I can see teas made from it, but probably more utilitarian- ropes, sails, twine, etc.

              You cant be getting high when you want to vanquish your enemies and breed their wives and daughters. Gotta be on top of your game.

                The warriors of many countries in antiquity were known to smoke hashish before battle, no different really to the inebriated states many soldiers fought in for centuries thereafter.

                  It would be really cool to get ahold of those seeds and use some genetic engineering to bring the strain to life!

                  My bet is that the strain would be called Valhalla!

                    Meade wine imported across Europe often contained hash oil as well as opium and psilocybe extracts.. Drugs are as old as man man

                      I think they liked Amanita mushrooms.

                        The vikings were advanced in many ways, not only were they fearless warriors, they were highly skilled traders and navigators believed to have reached the Americas and Asia.

                        Swordsmiths across Asia produced the greatest swords in human history, one of the examples is the Damascus steel which has similar chemical compositions to the metal composition of the Ulfberht swords. Many artifacts were discovered in modern day Scandinavia that originated from Asia, India and other Eastern parts of the World.

                          Yeah but you dont take amanitas to chill out I can tell you that lol

                          Also we should say that "Viking" was an act not a people.. They were all just the Norse tribes and to go on Viking was to go robbing or just getting yours, claiming land or women or whatever.. We came to call people from the Norse tribes that were plundering so to speak Vikings but as I say back in the Norse lands there were people who weren't going on Viking and therefore were just Norse people and the word Viking doesn't really apply to all Norse peoples just because some went on Viking.

                          All of our antecedents were incredibly sophisticated, the church and state has been white washing our history away none stop to make us all subservient to the current rulers.

                              I'm not questioning what you're saying, but to me smoking pot before a battle seems like a really shitty idea.
                              Pot makes my body heavy and makes me want to sit down and take it easy.
                              If i had smoked pot before a battle i would have said, "forget this!", laid down under a tree and gotten faschinated by clouds while giggeling or something.

                              If i would have mixed a modern day battle cocktail it would probably be either straight amphetamine or a mix of it and a benzodiazepine
