A 6th century statue of the Buddha manufactured in Kashmir on the India/Pakistan border was found in a Viking grave near Stockholm.

I'm sure if they had access to Buddha statue than they also had access to herb or hash from traders moving stuff across from Asia

The vikings traveled deep inland on rivers into eastern europe, founding Moscow and actually are the Rus people that Russia is named after.

Yes, that is all true. The name Rus comes from the area north of Stockholm called Roslagen and means something alobg the lines of rowing

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.

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]
