Lightbulb India Impressions


Hi Forum,

I would like to tell you my small experience on cannabis in India.
I had the chance to live in Bangalore (South India) for a year with some locals. As I traveled with some friends to various places around this incredible country let me give you a short overview.


To get some weed isn't that hard if you don't go fully tourist - in shorts and camera
Knowing a little Hindi or the locale language get's you a sympathy bonus right away, as well as the head wiggle - that one I adapted way to fast

I general you should be aware that as a white tourist you will draw attention to you, simply for looking different (some people get the stare at you just wink or smile - worked for me 4/5).
Don't create a scene and try to be discrete with your cash, bla you heard it before.

Always haggle!


Scoring in South India

I found mostly flowers around South India and hash was tricky to get and more expensive. One thing I can tell you beforehand: find yourself a local who knows his weed and you'll be good from there, buying in public occasions will mostly not satisfy you until you put in some effort.


Autoriksha drivers usually know where to get some flowers or sometimes have some on them self. If one doesn't know what you want or is not eager to help you - just try someone else.
It's mostly dark laced flowers and pretty expensive too. Smoked a little of that in the beginning - gets you high, but in a very down and enraptured kind of way.

You can spot the difference, the light green was one of the best we smoked. The laced stuff is dark brown/blackish, there is also brownish outdoor (right picture) around but you can tell by the glued up kinda look.

Bangalore
We scored at different occasions, but mostly the college crowd will help you out.

Worse than usual -- once we got half tola --


the best we smoked, really sticky and stinky

Mysore
On the old market you will find people who would like to sell to you, here it's the same as with the riksha drivers, quality is poor and prices high. Nonetheless your chance of getting something better increases if you ask around more or tell them it's laced and and you like the better quality (that mostly doesn't go with riksha drivers as their expertise is limited)


The left one is basically just toss and the right one takes you hours to pick out stems and seeds

Himalaya Region

The vibe is way different up there, you'll see people smoking on the street and plants everywhere beginning right at the road side and ending right before the police station.
We scored some different charas (hash from live plants) and it was very relaxing but not too strong if you're a daily smoker. Basically the more you get into smaller towns or villages and the further you go, the prices will decrease and the quality increase.
But bare in mind that it's still illegal, it may appear different as it's just to long of a history there to ban it, but if the cops get you you'll be fined.

Manali
Go to Old Manali, which is the small part of the town right after the river. You'll find restaurants or cafe's where people smoke up and you can have a chat with either the tourists or the owner and get yourself some charas. It's around 2200-2600 Rs. a tola (11g) so you're paying the tourist price.

Manali is chill for 1-2 days as a starting or ending point of your mountain journey but it's quite touristic and also a lot of indian people travel there.

The tola we purchased there, its really brownish in this picture becaus it's already some 7 days old to that point.

Kasol
We've just been there for a night but our Apartment host smoked on with us and even left us some 1g of charas in the morning when we left. It's not that nice of a city, one of the reasons being the weed tourism.


Tosh
Where we scored the best charas on the journey, simply ask your Guesthouse owner or at the cafes and you'll get a hint where to find some. Don't buy too quick here as the supply is pretty decent.

Its a very small town high up in the mountains, you'll have some great treks around.

Great report, I found some stuff in Kerala that looks the same, brownish lots of seed but not compressed like Thai more like individual buds rolled and fermented.

Very cool man. It's a lot of fun to read of people's travels and the stories they bring back with them.
